Winner of the Prix Révélation at the Festival International de la Bande Dessinée d Angoulême

Florent Ruppert (b. 1979) and Jérôme Mulot (b. 1981) began their creative partnership as art students in Dijon, France. Their intensely collaborative comics are drawn by both artists in a shared visual style simultaneously abstract and gestural that obscures the individual contribution of either hand. Throughout their work, Ruppert and Mulot deftly interweave the naturalistic and the synthetic, playfully manipulating productive tensions in comics, cognition and social culture. Their complex and dazzling comics pages incorporate visual devices from related media, including film and optical toys. Their cinematic figure drawing enlivens mask-like, schematic faces that alienate even as they solicit involvement.

"Amazing!" -Sammy Harkham (Editor, Kramers Ergot)

"Now that I can read it, I'm delighted by how evil and mean-spirited the work is." -Dash Shaw (Bottomless Belly Button, Bodyworld)
