When I was in Paris, I was amazed at the popularity of graphic novels and that kinda stuff. Among adults! Everyone reads them on the metro, I never saw that on the trams of Gothenburg. Most bookstores (Fnac is a great one) have a huge department of graphic novels.
While browsing the shelves of the Virgin Megastore, I came across this guy Voutch. One frame cartoon strips collected into several books.
Lemme tell you...this is a guy who knows his colors.
Every picture has a lovely mood and the colors are subtle with the occasional pop. And the cartoons are funny too, this is a reason to practice one's French!
