    Dear Boulet, Would you find and watch a French flick called 99 Francs? (If you haven't already.) I could go into detail but let's just say it covers advertisement whth just the right ammount of grim humor. I'm close to certain you'd enjoy and find it inspiring.

    >Make your own cereal: Call it whatever you want. Go to a health-food store and get Oats, Barley, Dried Fruit, Seeds, etc. It might help to have a small coffee-mill (or the more practical mortar & pestle) to grind tough stuff like flax-seeds into a usable form, since they're too small for your teeth to chew. Making everything fresh and not cooking it too much keeps more of the vitamins which means you eat healthier food and need less of it. >Recycle paper towels: You can re-use them sometimes x3 before they go into a box by the toilet. Rough? Yes, but NOT if you soak it in warm (even soapy) water. >>>Cleans (and washes) and soft-soft-soft!<<Industrial Detergent: Very strong stuff, so you have to dilute it with water and other ingredients so it doesn't dry-out you skin or cause a rash. -The important first step is becoming angry at the limited choices available! (Expecting to have your needs taken care of is the worst kind of consumerism.) Although it DOES make a very funny story.

    May I suggest that you finish your grocery shopping with a good old Axe body wash. With slogan like “The cleaner you are, the dirtier you get”, “Go like a man, come back like a Hero”, “Unlimited female attention” or (for the Apollo scent) “A fragrance so seductive it will make you the center of any girl’s universe” and shampoo “Wash, Attract, Repeat”, you should be able to regain your manhood in no time. But… “Caution: May cause extreme female attraction”...

    You may or may not have heard of the yogurt that recently came out that is aggressively marketed for men, with black packaging with the word 'POWER' slapped on it. It also has bonus sexist advertising! It's funny how this comic came out about the same time that brand took storm.

    I had a WARNING about only using small pieces of paper towel, but I guess it got deleted somehow. No larger than a half sheet or you might risk stopping up the plumbing! Better in quarter sheets, which are about the size of normal toilet paper but much stronger.

    Boulet, it seems like you need Scotts Porage Oats which have a packet as manly as they come. http://www.thegreatbritishdiet.co.uk/Articles/ScottsPorageOatsOriginal.html Followed by a proper fried breakfast of bacon, eggs, baked beans, mushroom, tomato, black pudding (similar to boudin noir if you are unfamiliar) and fried bread (toast is for wimps). With a mug of strong tea with two sugars. Traditional British cuisine is (often rightly) ridiculed the world over, but there is nothing cute and fluffy about our breakfast (cookable by anyone, even you but best eaten in a good "greasy spoon" cafe). Bon Appetit! PS, I only recently discovered your cartoon and I think it's brilliant!

    Actually, last time I were at Carrefour, I saw a box of oat flakes with a muscular scottish guy drawn on the box. It was all about virility and "I grow my traditional oat on my own". I retain myself to buy it, cause I'm gay. It would have been like you buying a cereal box because of a topless girl on the front cover. Google : scott's porage oats

    Oi! Boulet, before asking for soy milk you should learn how much dangerous soy is for human body (e.g. http://www.medicinenon.it/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/attack-of-the-killer-bean.pdf) and how it is produced (search about OGM and Amazon deforestation). But if you care more for cows than for people like you.. well... it is up to you, for sure I cannot discriminate anyone. It would only make of you a superficial veggie sympathizer. No offence, I wouldn't stop reading your stories, you're almost a genius ;)

    The cereal you want exists and is called just Müsli. Oats and dried fruit and nuts. Yes, there are all these brands with slim models on the box promising pleasant bowel movements and whatnot. You don't want that. No. You want the clear plastic bag. The one that just says "Müsli". Sometimes "classic Müsli". The picture, if there is one, is just some nuts and fruit tastefully arranged on a pastel colour background. Because these people aren't selling you magnesium-enriched frosted flakes; they don't want you to think of happy bees or having the body of a ballerina. They sell food. What food? OATS AND NUTS AND DRIED FRUIT. That's why the bag is transparent - so you can see it's all just plain food inside. It's a bag that contains no marketing, no added preaching, no enhanced nutrition, it's just food that's good for you. It goes well with milk, with yoghurt or just plain water, with added honey or cinnamon. It's oats and nuts and dried fruit - no bullshit.

    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 !
