Monsieur Jean is a young writer whose everyday life and its inescapable existential woes are comedically told by the talented team of Dupuy & Berberian, winners of the 2008 Grand Prix de la ville d’Angoulême. Whether it’s the unexpected visit of an old friend, a trip to his in-laws, the arrival of a child, the frustrations of writer’s block, or even dealing with his moody landlady, Monsieur Jean’s life and times all share a tenderness and a dash of irony.

A series full of the nostalgia and droll absurdity that invariably come with adulthood.

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’.

Review:

"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"
- PublishersWeekly.com
"Some classic –and award-winning – modern European comics that should be on the shelf of anyone interested in quality comics works."
- Forbiddenplanet.co.uk
"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."
- All-Comic.com
"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."
- Geekedoutnation.com
