Webcomic: Poetry in space

Spend a few minutes of your day traveling Boulet's webcomic "Brassens in Space." You'll be glad you did. It's a delightful, pixelated journey into the artist's fascination with space, a rebuttal to the idea that scientific discoveries about the skies have killed their poetry.

And once you've enjoyed that, take a few more minutes to enjoy Boulet's The Long Journey!

The style of the comic (the long vertical drop) heavily reminds me of IB Spang Olsen "The Boy In The Moon".

@SpaceCase: From Paris :) (...) Q : Who are you and what is this blog ? I’m Boulet, a french cartoonist living in Paris. I’ve had about 20 books published, most of them for young readers. I also worked on two books of the “Dungeon” series with Lewis Trondheim and Joann Sfar (available in English, ask at your local comic shop). This blog is an attempt to translate my french blog ” “. I started in 2004 and have drawn more than 1600 entries. I’m trying to catch up but it’s a huge undertaking! Source:
