Beautiful drawing by the great Jacques Tardi...a few smudges (mostly outside the image area), otherwise very good condition...

This drawing was published in a book named "L'almanach du crime 1983" published by "La Butte aux Cailles" under the direction of editor Michel Lebrun. It was reprinted in the 1983 Futuropolis calendar. In 1985, Futuropolis edited two big books with Tardi's works : "Mine de plomb" et "Chiures de gomme" and the drawing was again published in the first of these books.

About Jacques Tardi

Jacques Tardi is without a doubt one of the most important artists of his generation. He invented a new variation within the clear line style and in this way inspired many artists. Tardi's expressionistic style is perfect for his stories about World War I and about the underworld of the city. Tardi is the father of "the new realism" and a master in depicting both the old city of Paris as the awful life in the trenches of the Big War. Text (c) Lambiek
