Description

The alternative comics movement has gone worldwide with a vengeance, with cauldrons of activity in a number of countries.

With Bête Noire, editor Christopher Polkki has set himself the daunting task of corralling all these exciting movements into one fantastically dynamic quarterly English-language anthology, with 88 pages of new or previously untranslated comics from two dozen top-notch cartoonists acclaimed for their work in such cutting-edge magazines or cooperatives as Kramers Ergot, Cornélius, Le Dernier Cri, and L’Association.

The exciting roster features MS Bastian, F© + Witko, Frédéric Coché, Ludovic Debeurme, Lucie Durbiano, Quentin Faucompré, Morgan Navarro, Caroline Sury, Adam Dant, Anke Feuchtenberger, Ichiba Daisuke, Junko Mizuno, Suzy Amakane, Takeshi Nemoto, Yuichi Yokoyama, Ben Jones, Reijo Karkkainen, Peter Köhler, Olaf Ladousse, Helge Reumann, Fabio Viscogliosi, and the legendary Henriette Valium.

Each was to have a story in every issue of the first four-volume “arc” from 2005, some of which would have been serialized across all four issues. This was the only issue released.
