Le colorado en plus petit. (Titre de travail).

Since a few weeks people ask me about the new book i'm doing instead of doing the issue three of DUNK (Yes the issue 02 is finished but is waiting for the 03 to be available).
It's an auto fictional novel about the life of the writer/journalist Denis ROBERT, one of my heroes in this world.
Denis Robert is a French Reporter which took personnal risks during ten years to make investigations about banks and clearing houses.
This book is a kind of road movie he makes with his ten years old son and this trip is an opportunity to take a look back on his past and on all the investigations he did from 1984 to nowadays It's also an opportunity to share with us his vision of our future.
This book will have 150 pages, so i'm doing it in  a looser style than as usual.
(By the way Denis is also the writer of DUNK.)

Depuis quelques semaines les gens me posent des questions sur le nouveau livre que je fais au lieu de faire le tome trois de DUNK (Oui, le tome 02 est terminé mais attend le 03 pour être disponible).
Il s'agit d'une auto-fiction sur la vie de l'écrivain / journaliste Denis Robert, l'un de mes héros dans ce monde.
Denis Robert est un journaliste français qui a pris des risques personnels pendant dix ans pour faire des enquêtes sur les banques et les chambres de compensation.
Ce livre est une sorte de road-movie qu'il fait avec son fils de dix ans et ce voyage est l'occasion de jeter un regard rétrospectif sur son passé et sur ​​toutes les enquêtes qu'il a fait, de 1984 à nos jours C'est aussi l'occasion de partager avec nous sa vision de notre avenir.
Ce livre sera composé de 150 pages, je le réalise donc dans un style plus relaché que d' habitude.
(Au passage, Denis est aussi le scénariste de DUNK).









Robert E Howard Savage's Sword # 8, review.

 Here is a review shared yesterday by Dark Horse with me.
So i did the same with you, audience.

Dear Dark Horse:
Robert E. Howard's Savage Sword #8 featured some great characters of Robert E. Howard that many comic fans never heard of. The most popular non-Conan character featured in this issue was Solomon Kane. Kane dispatching the witch woman was excellently represented in the dark European forest. With all the interest in Grimm's fairy tales in comics these days, more tales of supernatural menaces in German forests would be a great storyboard launching for future Solomon Kane stories. Dark Horse should consider more Solomon Kane stories either here in Savage Sword or in more mini-series. Breckinridge Elkins and the team of Conrad/Kirowan were characters I never heard of before but appreciated the potential of stories that they could represent. Especially the Conrad/Kirowan characters, as supernatural/steampunk stories seem to be popular in comics these days and Dark Horse should capitalize upon these possibilities.
Artistically, the best part of the issue was the Daily Life in Hyboria story by Franck Biancarelli! I stared at the scene of the mercenaries riding their horses over the hill—this same image was used on the back cover. The artwork even out did the classic John Buscema Conan story reprinted in this issue! And that Conan story was one of the greatest stories ever. Thank you Dark Horse for a great issue of Savage Sword!

DUNK 02. BIANCARELLI

Petite revue du processus pour arriver à la page finale...
Cela commence par les images cherchées comme ça, directement au feutre, sans vraiment cadrer même si j' ai une idée de la forme de chaque image.
Ensuite tous ces petits dessins sont scannés et remontés dans photoshop en une page.
Puis le tout est imprimé en format 330/480 en jaune.
Avant dernière étape un crayonné précis qui cherche à corriger toutes les erreurs.
La dernière étape sera l'encrage.
