Tagame Gengoroh Couverture Tagame Gengoroh

Tagame Gengoroh Entretien de Xavier Guilbert

Without a doubt, the works of Tagame Gengoroh hold a very special place among the huge manga production: gay, openly pornographic and SM, they regularly feature musculary, manly figures, with no resemblance to the androgynous ephebes that are the standard fare in yaoi books. Welcome to this terra incognita.

John Porcellino Entretien de Xavier Guilbert

For close to a quarter century, John Porcellino emerged with King Cat Comics as a central figure on the self-published field of comics, sticking to an approach that is both personal and fragile. With his unmistakable line and his stories dealing with the simple things in life, he has built along the years a unique and fascinating body of art.

Marc Bell - bandeau Couverture Marc Bell

Marc Bell Entretien de Xavier Guilbert

One of the few artists who evolves with similar ease in both the world of comics and that of contemporary art, Canadian cartoonist Marc Bell has brought to life a very unique (and often overwhelming) universe — one animated by a very special sense of humor. Some of which might have creeped in the following interview. Be warned.

Bandeau Couverture Jaime Hernandez

Jaime Hernandez Entretien de Xavier Guilbert

Since his debut thirty years ago, Jaime Hernandez (along with his brother Beto) hasn’t stopped influencing numerous generations of comic book writers, utterly seduced by the charms of those Locas in the pages of Love and Rockets. With The Love Bunglers (published in 2011) ou Browntown (2012), there is absolutely no doubt that he remains today as masterful and essential as ever.

Sunny Couverture Matsumoto Taiyou

Matsumoto Taiyou Entretien de Xavier Guilbert

The Japanese manga production can often appear as extremely standardized, following the lead of the publishing powerhouses’ weekly and monthly magazines. Among what has undeniably become an industry, Matsumoto Taiyou emerges as a singular case: for a quarter of a century, he has been creating a highly personal and uniquely recognizable body of work, of which Sunny, his latest series, might well be the most intimate accomplishment.

A Black Woman Couverture Anton Kannemeyer

Anton Kannemeyer Entretien de Xavier Guilbert

When l’Association published the Bitterkomix anthology in early 2009, it brought to light the South-African comics magazine in all the strength of its fury and political charges. The panel at during the Angoulême Festival featuring Anton Kannemeyer and Conrad Botes, the two co-founders of the periodical, cemented (if there remained any doubt) the importance and accuracy of their vision. It is during the third edition of the artist residence PFC (Pierre Feuille Ciseaux, laboratoire de bande dessinée) that we had the chance to meet again with Joe Dog, soft-spoken as always, but still burning with the same fire.

BigQB Couverture Anders Nilsen

Anders Nilsen Entretien de Xavier Guilbert

For a long time, nobody knew if Anders Nilsen would bring the intriguing narrative of Big Questions to its conclusion, but the issues kept on coming, oh-so-slowly, year after year. Dogs and Water had provided a nice consolation, delivering an enigmatic journey through a desolate landscape. Now the magnus opus has been completed, and is available in the form of a hefty brick published by Drawn & Quarterly — the opportunity to look back on what might be the achievement of a lifetime.
