Art of R. Crumb: The Future according to Robert Crumb. Histoire sans paroles : Le lait noir. Le lait noir, dernière bande dessinée de la talentueuse dessinatrice et illustratrice Fanny Michaëlis, vient de sortir!

histoire sans paroles : Le lait noir

Repérée notamment par le Monde ou encore le Magazine littéraire pour qui elle illustre régulièrement des articles, son univers poétique et mystérieux ne laisse pas indifférent. Inspirée par l'histoire sombre de son grand-père, né au milieu des années 1920 dans une famille juive de Berlin, Fanny Michaëlis retrace l’errance de Peter, un jeune homme contraint à la fuite, et qui tout au long de son parcours se confronte aux horreurs de la guerre.

Néanmoins Le lait noir ne se contente pas de retranscrire un simple souvenir; avec la pointe de son crayon à papier, l'auteure manie subtilement la tension entre douceur esthétique et violence contextuelle. Fanny Michaëlis, au travers cette œuvre intimiste, sonde ainsi la construction de sa propre identité. Fanny Michaëlis joue de la batterie. Le lait noir est un ouvrage de la collection Raoul, il mesure 15 x 21 cm. Histoires sans paroles. Palestine by Joe Sacco. The Tale of One Bad Rat by Bryan Talbot. Annie Sullivan and the Trials of Helen Keller by Joseph Lambert. Ethel and Ernest. Ethel and Ernest (subtitled "A True Story") is a graphic novel by English author and illustrator Raymond Briggs.

Ethel and Ernest

It tells the story of the lives of Briggs' parents from their first meeting in 1928 to their deaths in 1971. Story[edit] The story is simply a progression through the lives of the titular couple, from their courtship in the late 1920s to their deaths in the early 70s. Ethel is a lady's maid with middle-class aspirations and firm notions of respectable English behaviour; she becomes a housewife when she marries. Ernest, five years younger, is an easygoing milkman with socialist ideals and an enthusiastic interest in modern progress and technology. Awards[edit] Ethel and Ernest won the "Best Illustrated Book Of The Year" at the 1999 British Book Awards.[2] Notes[edit] TVCartoons Ltd, the animation company who made the film of Raymond Briggs' The Snowman, is in negotiations to make a feature-length film of Ethel and Ernest.

Gary Larson The Far Side. The Far Side is a single-panel comic created by Gary Larson and syndicated by Universal Press Syndicate, which ran from January 1, 1980, to January 1, 1995.

Gary Larson The Far Side

Its surrealistic humor is often based on uncomfortable social situations, improbable events, an anthropomorphic view of the world, logical fallacies, impending bizarre disasters, (often twisted) references to proverbs, or the search for meaning in life. Larson's frequent use of animals and nature in the comic is popularly attributed to his background in biology. Reruns are still printed in many newspapers. The Far Side was ultimately carried by more than 1,900 daily newspapers, translated into 17 languages, and collected into calendars and 23 compilation books.[1] Design overview[edit] Most The Far Side cartoons are a single rectangular panel, occasionally split into small sections of four, six, or eight for the purposes of a storyline.

The Misadventures of a Modern Mugwump: Calvin and Hobbes is the Cure for Graduate Burnout

Ready ready ready. Right after I post some Calvin and Hobbes cartoons that perfectly express how I feel about school right now! This wish has been wished so many times... I have been known to add over a page in length by using more complex words and sentence structures in a paper. This is one of my favorite Calvin and Hobbes of all time. I think you can only get away with calling everyone a drip when you are 6. I have never considered math to be all that 'miraculous,' but if it got me out of doing some, I could cite this cartoon as major logical evidence. Haha.. haa.. ha, heh... back to work.
