    Have you seen the lytro cameras? They allow you to refocus the foreground or the background or move the perspective a tiny bit - I had the chance to play with one recently and fell in love! *swoon* Sure, it's not the magic Photoshop we see in TV crime dramas, but a step in that direction, maybe.

    @arys With lytro, can play with focal because ALL datas are in the file (lytro "take" thousands fotos in same time). Can't extract datas which doesn't exist (like fbi super hacker agent ^^). But, with classic image (not lytro), algorythm can correct some annoying errors, if the information about the "error" is in. like this photoshop filter for motion blur correction : "Refocus" an image, in some degree, is possible too.

    I hate to break it to you but, as a Frenchman, you really would not like to live in an American TV show. You would probably wind up losing your girlfriend to a slovenly, stammering American with big, soulful brown eyes. -G.

    if you want something printed, scale it down to 300dpi. most printers run on that resolution. so if fed with something higher, the printer would re-size the imagery. this often results to poor output.

    Large-format printers are pretty expensive but sometimes the older models can be a bargain. Print your own posters and murals.

    @kwekachu I work at a printers as a designer, and that's a lie in the modern age. Only VERY old printers have a max limit of 300dpi, and the printer should know better if this is the case and resize it themselves. Even my cheapo $60, 7-year-old HP printer at home can print 600dpi. Higher DPI is always better, especially if you want to print anything bigger than a sheet of A4. What grinds my gears is stuff in the comic where a printer says an outright lie (all color digital printers do CMYK - some even do CcMmYK - but never RGB) even though it is their job to know and do this stuff. I never know how those people stay in business. "Designers" sending me logos made in photoshop, "printers" asking me what a pdf is...ugh!

    So there was a mention of a French version of a comic a while back, but the French section of this site doesn't have any updates since February. Is there some other place you post those?

    Printers print in CMYK, why on earth wouldn't they be able to use a file in their printer's native color format? Terrible.

    From an American... "Nous avons très peu d'informations": Although "We have very few data" is *technically* correct, you'd never hear it said that way on TV. It would more likely be "We have very little data" which is a more common usage. ("Very few data" is correct because "data" is a plural noun that refers to a collection of individual objects: "very few cats", "very few books". For some reason, at least in the States, we treat "data" more like a singular noun that refers to a quantity of something: "very little water", "very little food". By contrast, you have "many cats" but "a lot of milk".) "On a retrouvé la victim a Lincoln Park" -> "The last victim was found IN Lincoln Park." Prepositions are hard (and certainly the thing that I am the worst at when speaking French :} ) "Ca risque de prendre de temps" -> "It will take me some time..." or more likely "I'll need a few minutes..." "Nous manquons justement du temps" -> "Time is not on our side" This is totally idiomatic. "Voila!" -> "There!" instead of "Here!" "Bon travail" -> "Good work, Cooper" "Dans la vrai vie" -> "Meanwhile, in real life"

    • 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 ” “. 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 !
