Following yesterday’s page from the upcoming Frank Pé and Zidrou one-shot, here’s the first look at Émile Bravo’s sequel to Journal d’un ingénu (“The Diary of a Naive Young Man”): one page in pencil sketch version. This page seems to take place on 10. May, 1940, the start of the German invasion of Belgium during WWII. The page constitutes Bravo’s contribution to a special publication in support of La Parenthèse bookstore in Nancy, which can be ordered here. (News via grelots on the Spirou.com forum.)

Sketch by Émile Bravo for a proposed but never adopted Brussels comics mural.

There is also some discussion of the cartoon adaptation of My Mommy Is in America and She Met Buffalo Bill, a half-comic, half-picture book by Bravo and Jean Regnaud. The film opened in cinemas across France yesterday. If you can read French (or can use Google Translate), you should definitely click over to ActuaBD. If you can’t, here are some of the highlights of the interview. Continue reading »
