Two years ago, Fanart Friday featured a panel from an exercise in the Graphical Storytelling course at The Animation Workshop in Denmark, where students had to adapt an excerpt from Cormac McCarthy’s post-apocalyptic novel The Road using Franquin’s characters and style. Back then it was the only example I could track down, but recently a bit more digging uncovered entries from many more students.
The assignment was set by Mårdøn Smet, and the rules specified a one- or two-page comic, imitating Franquin’s style in the period 1956–1958. As you can see, there was considerable variation in how the students adapted the same text.
