I was spouting on Twitter about how much I love how Franquin draws clothing and handles fashion. I figure you guys should check out a few more here.
Franquin was always well known for culturally dating his work. He was a big proponent of using fashion magazines, furniture catalogues, advertisements, etc as reference for including real life indicators in comic work. I always loved seeing cars and clothing interpreted by Franquin bc they always looked very slickly Franquin while at the same time they really looked like they occupied a time and space in their respective comics.

Comic rec!! Fabrice Tarrin has been very dead online these days and a nice conversation I struck up at Short-Run reminded me that it’s time to reread some of my favorites. I was reading a ton of French comics during my teenage ~emotional awakening~ and I remember this comic very fondly. It’s an autobiographical comic where Tarrin (the lemur) recounts his teenaged crush on Charlotte Gainsbourg, the daughter of infamous French singer, Serge Gainsbourg. And lots of other weird stuff like his weird stepdad and mom who are active in religious cults, etc, etc.
Someone was kind enough to scanslate his books into English so I think there’s much of an excuse to not give it a try!!

Spirou: An Exquisite Corpse p. 3 by Fabrice Tarrin

IDK how well this movie adapted the book but it is based of a really really beautifully written and drawn children’s comic!! (Also it won an Eisner) Since I talk so much about Emile Bravo I figured I’d share since it’s one of his few works translated to English. It’s about a 5 year old boy who’s coming to terms with the fact that he doesn’t live with his mom and he doesn’t know where she is.

I am so ridiculously in love with the bottom image and it is so rad that even when he was nearing 60 Moebius/Giraud was still improving as an artist woooooooow

I love Trondheim’s writing, it’s so blasé and charming, even in something as short as this. (The art is cute too)
