Today sees the publication of the inaugural article in my regular column on European comics for The Comics Journal, entitled Common Currency. It focuses on Fabrice Neaud’s recent turn toward genre comics, with the series Nu-Men, after two decades of uncompromising autobiography had brought him to an impasse. Go check it out here.
I conducted an interview with the great Fabrice Neaud back in 2009, on the occasion of the publication of his ‘augmented’ version of his masterpiece Journal III. A candid conversation on art, life and the risks incurred in their intersection. It’s now up over at The Comics Journal.
