BD de cape et d'épée

Swashbuckling comic! There is a new photographic exhibition in Saint-Nicolas street (you've seen it with the previous exhibition here). This time, it honours Jacques Martin, a pioneer of historical comics (or bandes dessinées) who died in 2010. This, and the coming photos, are excerpts of the story of Loïs, published by Casterman editions, a partner of this exhibition. The drawings are by Olivier Pâques.

Il y a une nouvelle expo photos rue Saint-Nicolas (vous aviez vu la précédente ici). Cette fois-ci, en partenariat avec les éditions Casterman, elle met à l'honneur Jacques Martin, pionnier de la BD historique avec ici (et à venir cette semaine) des extraits des aventures de Loïs. Les dessins sont d'Olivier Pâques.

At first I thought this was the little prince. Nice photo, I love Versailles in the background.

The architectural details are almost as interesting as the swashbuckling!

I suppose there was a time in my childhood when I thought swords were very cool. My son certainly wanted one when the family visited the chateaux of the Loire many years ago. Now I think differently. You could get your arm cut off!

A nice way to learn about comics.
Un Jacques Martin tres different de l'animateur tv... :-)

This is all new to me. Is this the French equivalent of anime?

There's nothing like a good 'swashbuckle' Ciel, sounds like a fun exhibition.
P.s. I can imagine that cycling around Versailles would be a very nice pastime Ciel, do it..get a bike, but remember to always wear your helmet!!

I don't think I've ever seen this kind of BD de cape et d'épée ever. It's fantastic!

SRQ said...

How unusual!

Regina K said...

I also like those architectural details but the main subject being the swashbucklers. This is quite well done.

Ceil, I haven't read those novels. I have read many, many novels of WWII. I am always happy to receive recommendations of good reads.

My son would probably appreciate this very much! He saw his first real BD in Paris when he was six...

Love the artwork and coloring. Not familiar with DBs, but I've always loved comics. This looks interesting.
