    J'aime la pluie. Je n'essaie pas d'être un poète, je trouve ça juste bien. Je me sens mieux quand il pleut dehors.

    I wouldn't say 'I like rain' ... especially not when I get soaked and wet as I did a few days ago ... or when it comes thru the roof ... but sometimes it's a nice excuse to stay inside and waste time at the pc ;-) oh ... and I love heavy rain + thunderstorm ... as long as I'm inside ;-)

    I like the rain, rain is nice ! I also really love skin irritations and stomach troubles ! And one man DID want more light ("Mehr Licht !", remember) : it's Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. And guess what ? He's dead ! DEAD ! What a mistake he made ! So, rain is cool, and people that hate light are just right !... or vampires I suppose... :p

    Bah! I like rain and you can't convince me otherwise. I will sit in the house and play video games all day, marvel at how dark it is, and get excited about thunderstorms. And maybe go out to play and get drenched!

    I live in Brittany and I hate the rain. But I hate even more the people who think they know what we think better than ourselves. Or the guys who can understand that others have different tastes. Reminds me something...

    Aimer le bruit de la pluie et la lumière des éclairs n'est pas quelque chose de très poétique, je trouve. Je ne vais pas marcher sous la pluie en secouant mes cheveux tel un monsieur supradark se prenant pour un poète maudit des temps disparus. J'aime juste bien la pluie et l'orage, sauf quand je suis dessous, par ce que leur son et leur odeur sont agréables. Je ne suis que le dixième à répéter ça, je sais, mais bon. Aimer la pluie ne veut pas automatiquement dire qu'on est un émo tragique se prenant pour un autre.

    This note doesn't appear as something relative to the fact that love the rain or not IMHO... It just sounds as a note about melancholia and loneliness, a perfume of "tempus fugit" on a rainy day and the memories of the past coming back to surface. Double thank you for this note Sir Boulet. It reminds me of days over and I really like the darkness of the drawing... ... though the bonus note kills the story. :)

    I like rain, it makes it easier to maintain my self-pity :D Oh crap, now I ruined it. I am going to blame Boulet for this. Oh!!! With Hermione-gate freshly relived, I see a potential for T-shirts: On the front, various scenes of Boulet-drawn misery and mopery, and the text "Life sucks?" On the back: "Blame Boulet!" :D Ok, it's an inside joke, but it works.

    I love the last panel. You really capture the feel of a rainy day. As a regular pedestrian I have to agree, rain can be more of an annoyance than a pleasure. I love rain when I don't have to go anywhere.

    I don't mind the rain because I was born in and live in Seattle. If I hated it I'd spend 200+ days a year in a ball under the bedsheets. That said, I hate, hate, HATE cold windy days where the sky is the color of lead or an old bruise and the rain comes down so hard that you can see it splash back up and hit the puddle twice. If that's what you've got, my sympathies.

    The alt text in this comic is pretty funny in the context of your earlier comic about how stupid people couldn't accept that others like different things.

    In England, when it doesn't rain for a few days, I've noticed we sort of wander around like lost children, fretting and worrying and wringing our hands, bemoaning Global Warming and the ever popular End of The Goddamn World. This comic is one of my favourites, haunting. Very haunting.

    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 :)

    • 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 !
