    Yet another wonderful piece, M.Boulet! I wish I would have had your work around when I was a teenager. With regards to the translation: In the second mirror sequence, I think you mean "feel" instead of "fell" "You look in the mirror and feel ugly" Thank you for sharing your wonderful talent!!

    Thank you Lady Astronomer ! I'll fix that ASAP ! It's a typo I often do when I write too quickly !

    Maybe "waves of classiness" would better reflect what "ondes de classe" conveys? Also "fell ugly" -> "feel ugly". Well I'm getting out tonight, maybe I shouldn't let anyone take pictures of me, haha.

    I hate photos and looking in the mirror most of the time ... lol ... and still I look at/into them ... darn you put that feeling into the comic perfectly ... being 'low-rez' sounds funny ... I'll keep that in mind ;-)

    You are so beautiful to meee (8) You know, since we always see you in your journal comics, I hadn't realized I haven't seen a photo of you! I'm so used to have my cartoonist friends to use drawn avatars instead of pictures that photo profiles feel weird.

    You're playing off the title of a film, I think; but that isn't well known among Anglophones. Our point of reference would be Blanche-Neige, Snow White, in which the wicked stepmother confirms her beauty by asking the magic mirror in the phrase "Mirror, mirror, on the wall / who is the fairest of them all?" MIROIR MON BEAU MIROIR -- translated, MIRROR MIRROR ON THE WALL (without commas).
  • 13)Message de Alex Knisely posté le 14 March 2012 à 23:01:04
    Do you want to preserve the "referring to movie" feeling that your MIROIR MON BEAU MIROIR conveys? Try MIRROR MIRROR ON THE WALL. The wicked queen, Snow White's stepmother, addresses her magic mirror in that phrase ("...who is the fairest of them all?"). I don't think that MIROIR MON BEAU MIROIR was a hit in Anglophonia, but everyone knows SNOW WHITE / BLANCHE-NEIGE. What does the reine malveillante say in BLANCHE-NEIGE, anyhow? If it's MIROIR MON BEAU MIROIR... well, hey, you win, Boulet!

    Our relationship with beauty is weird. I came to peaces with my ugliness when I was yet a teenager. It's a good thing, you focus on stuff you can improve instead of blaming nature unfair randomness. But, even so my own appearance doesn't matter that much to me, I still feel a lot better when I'm next to pretty girls. Go figure. There gotta be some kind of study about how our brain works through the perception of beauty.

    • 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 :)

    • 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 !
