A Parisian friend showed me some graphic novels from his shelf. Here were some very sophisticated themes being dealt with and the art was terrific, much less raw than a lot of the stuff being done in America. Thatâ€™s one of the problems with graphic novels. Who wants to spend 400 pages looking at what each picture means? You donâ€™t often see good art and good story combined, and thatâ€™s what I saw happening in those French books.
