Pour les beaux yeux de la Marsupilamie

Pour les beaux yeux de la Marsupilamie

The marsupilami, like its creator, is at heart a peaceable soul. Nevertheless, he can be provoked into an explosion of rage if spurned by his beloved marsupilamie. For confirmation of this, look no further than to the following comment from a recognised expert on the species, Mademoiselle Seccotine: “In the animal kingdom, certain displays of temper are well known, but the monumental rage of the marsupilami is legendary, and not likely to be forgotten by those who witness it.” A master at conveying movement, Franquin injects this drawing with remarkable power and verve, drawing us into this moment of high drama.
