Heroicomic by Joyce Neimanas
Actually, she created three series working with the comic book format, but I believe (and I could be mistaken) that only one was printed in comic book format. http://joyceneimanasartist.com/
Anotonio Caballero is a very interesting mexican photographer.
He has made some photographs for more than 500 foto novelas between 1963 et 1978.
An exciting book published few years ago by Toluca : Las rutas de la pasión.
There is a companion book to Chris Marker’s La Jetee from Zone Books which is good.
Not really what you’re looking for but there is also a book of film stills from Fritz Lang’s M which follows the film’s storyline and also includes incredible behind the scenes photos. All done large format. It was done by Hatier, the French publisher in 1990 I think. Not super sexy as a book in design or printing but the photos are amazing. I think they did a hardcover and soft edition.
shadowraith….check out the publisher The House Of Murky Depths
by the way, for me, the original version of Moriyama’s NY 71…..he published/printed it himself by using a Xerox in midtown and literally photocopying the pics and stabling them together…i’ve seen one…i’ve also seen some of Araki’s xerox books…..
they’ve been a big inspiration….the Moriyama Xerox ’71 kills….not even close to the same experience as the reprint…
Thanks for all of the great responses and leads. Anotonio Caballero looks like a treasure trove. Wish I could see the Fritz Lang book. Can’t seem to find it online. Sort of reminds me of the Red Balloon book I bought yesterday:
Germaine Krull did a very cool one with Georges Simenon called “La Folle D’Itteville” a murder mystery illustrated pocket book with all set up pictures to follow the story in 1931. They offer a second book on the back cover that appears to have never been done.
Sorry to say it’s very expensive these days.
In the early eighties Belgian artist Marie-Francoise Plissart made several ‘romans-photo’
‘Prague’ (1985) http://www.argentic.fr/product-6037.html

I found a lesbian photo novella published in Barcelona by Imprenta Layetana, en erotic literature editor in work between 1925 and the beginning of the Civil War. The title is number 2 of the Lesbos Library, “with fifty natural photographs” reads the dustjacket. The author: Lilian Edith. No stated date; I’d guess late 1920s.
Take a look:
