    Every time I open your site and see a long update, my heart sinks a little. I have never stopped reading one of your updates partway through. And having seen an update's there, I have to read it. Putting it aside for later won't do. I reschedule the next part of the day in my head. Maybe ten minutes will be gone. Maybe fifteen. Whatever I was planning to do? It's going to have to wait. I sigh. And then I read. Always when I reach the end I am content, sated with good drawing and good storytelling. And this time, the story was more than usually good, even by your high standards.

    A great examination of fantasy tropes, yes. But what makes this story stick in my mind is the way it celebrates our ordinary, mundane, present-day actual -real- world. The way it twists the whole concept of escapism on its head, by making reality the escape craved by the fantastical. The way it makes me want to stroll outside through my hometown and just watch the people for a while. Maybe standing on a bridge like "Morglox" does there at the end. Is there a word for the opposite of escapism? For a story that makes me want to be right where I am? I don't think so, but I'll enjoy it anyway.

    Wasn't that a great story or what? And a surprise too. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying you don't tell great stories. In fact, it's quite the opposite: even when I know you make great comics, I'm always surprised by the ways your plot goes. You're truly creative. For someone like me, who reads tons of comics, it's always refreshing when I read beautiful and complex stories like yours. I just regret not being able to buy your published stuff, being Brazilian brings limitations to that. When I visit France I will make sure to get all I can from your books, even if I have to learn French just to read them.

    What a preachy story. Here is my list of issues. If the fake world is a fully realized world with actual people living in it, what difference does it make. You're still experiencing it, it doesn't make it less real. Your brain don't give a damn, it's just a matter of preference. How convenient that the protagonists enter the world into a fully furnished apartment with apparently no rent fee and a fully stocked fridge (as they obviously don't have jobs). "You are free to do whatever you want in this world!" Ha. ha ha. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA MrMagoo says he was doing magic stuff to bring freedom to the weak and downtrodden, yet he is the only one who escapes into the "real world". If magic man knew what was coming, then why did he bring a trunk of garbage (jewels) with him? Getting a job while having no previous job experience, no ssn, no id, and no history as up until a few days ago you were in another dimension/reality. The way he says they've woken up, it sounds like they were in a coma for the entire time they were in fairyland. The Royalty characters portray wizworld as some kind of Utopia but it seems like it has it's fair share of shit seeing as there is an ongoing war against magic. The Prince wanting to go back after discovering the Real magic of digital entertainment. Overall I felt the story was too convenient, and the message too forced. Art was great as usual though.

    What a preachy story. Here is my list of issues. Let me adress some of the previous commenters issues: 1. If the fake world is a fully realized world with actual people living in it, what difference does it make. You're still experiencing it, it doesn't make it less real. Your brain don't give a damn, it's just a matter of preference. Yes, that's actually one of the main themes of the story. To the Prince, who had a pretty nice life, the magic world is the 'real' one. To Morglox, who was on the loosing side of a war, the new world is the 'real' one. Blanche on the other hand was neutral and was free to choose which world is 'real' to her. That's the whole point. 2. How convenient that the protagonists enter the world into a fully furnished apartment with apparently no rent fee and a fully stocked fridge (as they obviously don't have jobs). Different fictional stories deal with trans reality travel in different ways. To some it's like walking through a door or getting lost in the woods on a dark night. In one I remember the "other you" that might exist had to be dead before you could cross over. One in particular had it that you would actually take over the life of the other you and memories of your previous reality would come only as dreams, getting more and more powerful until you realized what had happened, or went insane. This seems like a variation on that since they obviously woke up having some idea of how this new world works. Also, not every country forces people without jobs into homelessness. This story is French. 3. "You are free to do whatever you want in this world!" Ha. ha ha. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Freedom is relative. Perhaps you should go live as a serf (or a woman at any social rank) in a feudal society to understand how well people in first world countries have it. Or be on the loosing side of a war. 4. MrMagoo says he was doing magic stuff to bring freedom to the weak and downtrodden, yet he is the only one who escapes into the "real world". Yes, no one said he wasn't as narcissistic as the Prince. There is no real hero to this story. 5. If magic man knew what was coming, then why did he bring a trunk of garbage (jewels) with him? Apparently he didn't know as much as he thought, he just knew it would probably be better than what he was leaving behind and was willing to risk it. 6. Getting a job while having no previous job experience, no ssn, no id, and no history as up until a few days ago you were in another dimension/reality. See point #2. The Prince woke up and knew to make coffee in a machine and thought about grocery shopping, which (as a prince) he certainly would have never had to do where he came from. We must assume knowledge of the world they entered was imprinted on them in some way when they crossed over. 7. The way he says they've woken up, it sounds like they were in a coma for the entire time they were in fairyland. He'd like to think that, that life was a nightmare for him but it doesn't mean that's what literally happened. This is his way of looking at it and he wants Blanche to see it the same way. 8. The Royalty characters portray wizworld as some kind of Utopia but it seems like it has it's fair share of shit seeing as there is an ongoing war against magic. The Royalty characters were on the winning side, to them it probably was pretty nice. 9. The Prince wanting to go back after discovering the Real magic of digital entertainment. Video games, dvds & all you can download porn vs. being a ruling class prince in a feudal society. I realize this was probably half joking but I'm getting the impression you didn't really pay much attention in your history classes. 10. Overall I felt the story was too convenient, and the message too forced. It said something you weren't expecting, that someone in a fantasy world might prefer your life over their own. That's not the kind of thing you're used to fantasy saying. 10. Art was great as usual though. Yes, yes it was.

    Oh boy I don't know why you thought your comment was so great it warranted getting posted twice, with the second mentioning your unnecessarily mentioning your name "Jeff M Thomas." Especially when it was one that poorly addressed my concerns. First of all what you said was not the point at all. It was pretty blatant the story was all about accepting the freedom that comes with the dullness of reality over fantastic escapism. The Prince literally states that he does not give a damn that his world his fake. He just wants to screw around forever and not hold responsibilities. Not to mention the characters themselves keep stating that "this is reality" and to accept it over falseness, so much so that they might as well be beating it into your skull with a bat. My issue is that the plot is TOO DAMN CONVENIENT for the message, reducing the subtlety to that of a children's book. However you seem to have accepted that wholeheartedly rather than examine the story from the perspective of how well it is written as a story. The story might as well have a mustache twirling villain persuading the Prince that his false reality is best. I especially love that personal jab at me despite not knowing anything at all about what books I have read, not to mention not even being able to understand such a simple point I was trying to make. Reality vs. Escapism is a story that has been done HUNDREDS of times already, if not thousands; and many of them better than this short comic. Call it limited by its length, but even then it could have been done better and with less contradictions and naïveté. You want to know a comic that relays this message miles better than this one? Go read Zot!

    The double post happened because of an error and it can not be deleted or edited. My post didn't show up for 10 minutes so I re-posted it with some modifications. It happens. You obviously know that yet you chose to ascribe it to my ego and use it as an opportunity for an insult. How nice. I perfectly understand your point. You feel that this comic is an indictment of escapism and fantasy. The fact that the Prince who loves his fantasy life is next to useless in the non magical world while Moglox, who hates the fantasy world, fits in perfectly well (and even becomes a school teacher) implies that people who indulge in escapism will not function well in reality. That escapism can turn someone into a lazy, useless, jobless Prince type person. That is not how I read it and not how I believe Boulet intended it. I've read through this entire blog and such a sentiment does not jive with the rest of his work. His comics are often about him indulging in escapism, I have no reason to think he'd suddenly rally against it. I think this is simply a retelling of Disney's Enchanted, in which a fantasy princess and prince find themselves in our world and the princess comes to like it while the prince is forever a fish out of water. The difference is the wizard who acts as a counterpoint to the prince. If it's saying anything it's that you shouldn't let someone else dictate what your life should be like, as the Prince was trying to impose his ideal fantasy life onto Blanche. CAN it be read as a parable about three people who indulge in escapism to varying degrees and the negative effects it has on their lives, as you assume? Yes, it can be looked at that way. But I am positive that is not how it was intended.

    F.A.Q.

    • Q : Who are you and what is this blog ?

      I’m Boulet, a french cartoonist living in Paris. I’ve had about 20 books published, most of them for young readers. I also worked on two books of the “Dungeon” series with Lewis Trondheim and Joann Sfar (available in English, ask at your local comic shop).
      This blog is an attempt to translate my french blog ” bouletcorp.com “. I started in 2004 and have drawn more than 1600 entries. I’m trying to catch up but it’s a huge undertaking!

    • Q : The translation are sometime awkward, how do you work ?

      The translation is a very delicate subject !

      Most of the translations were performed by followers of my french blog, but very few of them are native anglophones, so the accuracy varies a lot.

      I tried to find a professional translator but it turned out it was far too much expensive for me alone. So I offered to give an original artwork in exchange of amateur translations (like, for a month or so of comics to translate) but even then it was complicated because just the re-handwriting the texts and posting them alone took a lot of time, and having to do original artworks for it and posting them was a lot of work too. Anyway I can’t manage it like this either.

      So for this new version, I’m going to give it a try and translate all by myself.

    • Q : Can we help you to make it sound better ?

      That would be the idea !

      As you can see in this FAQ, I’m not so good in english ! So here’s what I have in mind: if you think you can make the translation sound better, just write your propositions in the comments, and I will gradually update the comics.

      The more comments and remarks I’ll get, the more I’ll be happy !

      Just be indulgent, I try my best, and translation is not my main job !

    • Q : I am french, but I fluently speak english, can I help anyway ?

      Yes you can, of course, but must tell I will pay more attention to native anglophone comments !

      I had a lot of people trying to translate, and each time, english or american people told me it was still awkward. French people tend to be overconfident with their level in english or at least, with their ability to translate a comic. It’s not just about being accurate, it’s also about making it soud good, you have to feel it, and that’s almost impossible if you are not english or american.

      The best help I could help would be from english or US cartoonists !

    • Q : I can’t translate, but is there anything else I can do to help ?

      Even if it’s written in english, it’s not easy to share this webcomic: in France I can rely on cartoonist friends or specialized reeferers to share, but it’s very difficult to make people discover my work in other countries !

      So if you want to help, it’s very easy: you can share with your friends ! If you have friends who don’t speak french, tell them about this page, and use social networks to share the comics you liked !

    • Q : How did you make this layout ?

      First, this blog was programmed with flash.

      But flash is a very heavy format, and very difficult to share. A few months ago, I decided to rebuild it whith a different platform. I discussed about this with Arnold on Twitter. He’s very good with WordPress, so I designed and he made this happen !

       

    • Q : Can I use the same layout for my blog ?

      WordPress is supposed to be a free-sharing platform, but we worked a lot on this, and we don’t specially want that anyone could use it without consulting us.

      The layout programming is Arnold’s, so you can ask him and he will be the only judge ! If he likes your work, I think he will be happy to authorize you to use this !

      His contact is at the bottom of the site, on the main page.

    • Q : Where can we buy your work ? Do you have a shop with posters, mugs or T-shirts ?

      For now, there’s not such a thing. I try to keep this the less “commercial” I can. But maybe I will change my mind some day !

      The only available work I have in english are the two books I drew for the serie “Dungeon” with Lewis Trondheim and Joann Sfar. Ask for it in any comic book shop ! The more you ask them to order it, the easiest will it get to obtain !
      If you want to have a better translation of this webcomic, you just have to harass US and UK publishers, till one of them agrees to publish it in english :)

      For my french work, I drew a lot of books, here’ the entire list:

      Glénat Editions:

      -Raghnarok

      Tome 1 : Dragon Junior

      Tome 2 : Fées et Gestes

      Tome 3 : Terreurs de la nature

      Tome 4 : Légendes urbaines

      Tome 5 : Tempus Fugit

      -La Rubrique Scientifique

      Tome 1

      Tome 2

      Tome 3

    • Q : Can I use one of your comics to print a shirt / a poster / to put it on my blog / to illustrate my book / magazine ?

      No, you can’t ! :)
      All this comics ask a lot of time to draw, and I don’t want them to be taken out of this blog, especially if it’s for commercial use.
      And most of this blog material is already printed by the french publisher Delcourt, so it would be highly illegal !
      They are some exceptions, though:
      -You can use one panel or two if you are making a citation (for example: if you write an article about my work or about webcomics in general, you can show a couple of pictures, without asking me. You just have to put the source under it: my name and the blog’s URL, clikable if your article is on internet. You don’t specially have to tell me, but it would be nice)
      -If you want to share a story on internet, the way I like better is one panel, clikable, redirecting to my original blog.
      -You can use a comic or more for pedagogic use if it’s a non-commercial use: if you’re a teacher and you need a printing from the blog for your class, if you’re a student and need an illustration for an essay or your thesis, I’m totally ok if you respect these two conditions: you have to ask me FIRST (because I wouldn’t like to illustrate something I totally disagree with), and the use must be completely NON-COMMERCIAL (you CAN’T sell it, no matter the format), NON-POLITIC (especially if you are a kind of nationalist NRA douchebag) and NON-RELIGIOUS (I’m an atheist, and I work for no church or cult)

    • Q : Can I buy you an original artwork ?

      I don’t really need mone for now, so I don’t sell my original works… So no !
      And I have a lot of work waiting to be done, so I don’t have time to make special drawings for birthdays, christmas presents or stuff like that !

    • Q : I’m very rich and I want to hire you / I want to publish your work

      Ok, send me an email and we’ll see ! :)
      I’m not specially looking for work now, but if you have something nice to propose, maybe we can find an arrangement !
      If you want to publish material from this blog, my publisher shares the copyrights with me, so you have to contact him ! look for “editions Delcourt” on the web !
