Over at The Comics Journal, the latest installment of my all-too-infrequent comics on European comics features an introduction to Riad Sattouf and a short review of the first two volumes of his current bestseller L’Arabe du futur. Both volumes have sold well over 200.000 copies in France and translations are appearing all over the place. Controversial, frank, brilliantly executed, problematic. Well worth your attention. Go, read.
