"What will it take to get Dupuy and Berberian the respect they deserve here in the States?...It’s amusing and whimsical, sometimes poignant, matched perfectly to the duo’s fluid cartooning style"
"Some classic –and award-winning – modern European comics that should be on the shelf of anyone interested in quality comics works."
"The preeminently talented Dupuy and Berberian’s opus is a charming, meandering look at one man’s early-life-crisis amidst a sea of nostalgia, cigarettes, self-reflection, literature, resistance and cat sitting. It isn’t just a slice-of-life tale; it’s the whole damn loaf."
"Jean is a character you’ll immediately like despite his flaws and his journey will take you back to certain moments in your life no matter how old you are. This is an excellent book that would also make a nice holiday gift."
About the Author
Born in Paris in 1960, Phillippe Dupuy published his first comic in 1980 'The Father Gaston' in Aïe magazine. Much of his work has been produced in collaboration with Charles Berberian with each contributing to the writing and artwork of their comics. But their biggest claim to fame is the 'Monsieur Jean' series, in which they explore the humor of everyday life. Dupuy-Berbérian won the prestigious Angoulême Alph-Art Award for the Best Book of the Year 1999 for 'Monsieur Jean #4: Let's Be Happy But Not Show it’.
Berberian was born in Baghdad, Iraq in 1959, and spent many years of his childhood in Lebanon. At the age of 18, he took courses in Fine Arts in Paris, where he met François Avril. After meeting Philippe Dupuy in 1983, they would release over 25 albums and many illustrative works under the name of Dupuy and Berberian. This includes the series ‘Henriette’, the diary of a shy young teenage girl. They were awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Angouleme International Comics Festival in 2008.
