This is a rare opportunity to acquire some of the best original illustrations by the great masters of the genre – works reflecting the entire history of European comics, from the great Hergé, Paul Cuvelier and Jacques Martin, first published in the pages of Spirou and Tintin, to recent exponents like Nicolas De Crécy and Brüno.
Thanks to the King Baudouin Foundation's Comès Fund, this author can be rediscovered through several strips and a dedicated scenography.
Original strips from Corto Maltese, Hugo Pratt's most famous comic strip, will also be presented, as well as those of Christophe Chabouté an artist who has often been presented as the spiritual son of Didier Comès.
Comic Art Factory is currently dedicating an exhibition-sale to Will Eisner :
"Without a doubt one of the most memorable, influential and acclaimed graphic novels of all time, Will Eisner’s "A Contract With God" is beloved by fellow artists and readers alike. Arguably the first modern graphic novel, it revolutionized the comics world when it was first published in 1978."
This will be the very first time a selection of original comic art from this legendary Will Eisner book is exhibited and offered for sale in Europe.
Collectorbd together with Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche present an exhibition-sale of original comic book strips and illustrations.
The artworks will be exhibited on the second floor of Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche at Paris on October 10th and 11th and will be available for sale on the CollectorBD website until October 18th.
