Gaston et la sieste littéraire

Gaston et la sieste littéraire

It’s impossible to speak of anything but poetry when faced with this ode to laziness taken from gag n°739. On this subject, Franquin has had the following to say: “Poetry is rare. The poetic in bande dessinée, there isn’t very much of it. I don’t think of myself as a poet. If it is said to me that there is poetry in Gaston, I’ll be very pleased, but …it’s fairly light, I would think.” Champaka has given this unforgettable image the panoramic 77 X 55 cm large format that it richly deserves.
