Alan's War, by Emmanuel Guibert, will be coming out next week, and we've been getting some questions: how does Emmanuel do it?  Is he creating this art with ink or pastels? 

Emmanuel was kind enough to make us a video to answer this question. 

And you should also take a look at the book!  boingboing says, "This is a kind of complimentary opposite to Maus: a story about a man whom war transformed into something better: tolerant, cosmopolitan, observant, and humane.

    That blew my mind. I feel like a forest dweller who’s just seen the moon for the first time.

    Yes same for all of us here when Emmanuel sent this in. There’s another one coming, but no drawing, just him singing…!

    Whoa! And was that just ink? What kinda paper? Are all of the other French comics magicians going to get mad for having their tricks revealed?

    That is absolutely fantastic. But what about the textured washes? I need to see how he does those too!
