Glacial Period

Front Cover
For the first time in the US, ComicsLit brings over the latest enfant terrible of European comics, a mad genius, and for the first time, the Louvre museum is involved in a co-edition of a series of graphic novels. There will be four and each will be a vision of this great museum by a different artist. De Crécy, at the sight of the incredible richness of the museum’s collection was overwhelmed and felt small and ignorant. The result is a story set thousands of years hence in a glacial period where all human history has been forgotten and a small group of archeologists fall upon the Louvre, buried in age-old snow. They cannot begin to explain all the artifacts they see. What could they have meant? Their interpretations are nonsense, absurd, farcical.

The story was iffy, but the art was fabulous. I somehow doubt the contents of the Louvre would be so well preserved after 2000 years, even if frozen under a glacier... Great pigdogs. Read full review

A strange story from an ice-age future where a team of explorers are searching for signs of the lost history, and stumble into the louvre, where the artifacts come to life. Read full review
