Ordinary Victories

Front Cover
This is the story of Marc, a photographer who's tired, of a very patient chick he meets, of banal horrors and of his pain-in-the-neck cat. It's the story of his art thrown against heavy anxiety attacks; of a really cute woman in his small town who seems to take to him against all odds; of the old neighbour, a peaceful likeable fellah until you get to know his disturbing role in the war... Movingly real and deeply perceptive, this graphic novel was the recipient of the top award in Angouleme, France's largest comics event.
