The price of the BD Fnac “was Diabolik” Clérisse and Smolderen – The Parisian

Le price of the BD Fnac was awarded Tuesday to “summer Diabolik” (Dargaud) by Alexandre Clérisse (design) and Thierry Smolderen (scenario), an album with the furious rhythm, with nice hints of the 1960s, on the model of the “fumetti”, the COMICS popular Italian full of suspense and eroticism.
Six albums were in the running for this award a few days before the opening of the international COMICS festival of Angoulême (26-29 January).
Summer 1967. Antoine, 15 years, is witnessing a series of amazing events and disturbing. In the space of two days, he saw her first sexual experience and discovers the drugs. Above all, he will find himself co nfronted with a secret agent came out of nowhere (we are in the midst of the cold war), a tragic accident, a girl is disturbing, and the disappearance of his own father.
One is caught up in this story of espionage which turns out to be rather dark. The story is told by Anthony, an adult, twenty years after this troubling was 67. The false pretenses to lead the dance the better to disorient the reader before finally popping up a truth unexpectedly.
The album, very Pop-Art, with its elegant solid colors and dramatic tart, had already received the price of the drives Ouest-France at the Festival Pier bubbles Saint-Malo. Alexandre Clérisse knows how to play with the cutting and do not hesitate to blow up the boxes. Some boards evoke (on purpose) the works of Andy Warhol and especially of David Hockney. One also thinks of Raftery, the heroine of COMIC created in 1962 by Jean-Claude Forest.
But the two authors are especially the kinship of their album with “Diabolik&# 8221;, the hero of a series of “fumetti,” which was created also in 1962, a character that could, as Fantômas, a substitute for any person with the perfect masks that he himself performs as well as amazing gadgets.
Created in 2012 on the model of the prix du roman Fnac, the price of the BD has rewarded last year’s album “The big bad fox” (Delcourt), by Benjamin Renner.
