three more panels. The next artist received only this artists' part of the

Summary : Jacques de Loustal is a painter. But he's no
elitist. He is one of the most prominent representatives of that trend they
cad the >French author comics< and which is nourished from special
sources: in the story, from the European narrative tradition and in the
line, from the famous Ligne claire school of the Grand Old Master Hergé

The Ghost of Whitechapel
Story by Fromental, Art by Loustal
An adaptation of the story by Marel Cox, this is a dark little tale of lives gone to
desperation. More Than Coincidence?
D&Q Volume 2, #2 builds on the promise of the first
issue, offering more Tardi, adding Jacques Loustal, another giant of
European comics, and presenting a lengthy new story by David Mazzucchelli.
As it so happens, the impact of each piece in the new issue seems to be
closely related to its length: Eric Drooker’s one-pager and Maurice
Vellekoop’s two-pager are certainly the least impressive works on display.
Drooker’s six panel slice-of-life is overburdened by clichéd images of
nurturing — the old woman watering plants, feeding cats and birds —
which are then bluntly contrasted with the loneliness and horror (the
tell-tale tattoo on her arm) of her own existence. While Vellekoop uses an
interesting device of having his comic read in two ways — simultaneously
as a regular comic narrative and as two parallel storylines — he fails to
develop it in any interesting direction, opting instead for random
permutations of his usual themes of sex, opera, and camp.
Loustal and Fromental’s “The Ghost of Whitechapel” is a brilliant
and sordid tale of decadence set in mid-century Europe. Playboy Morel Cox
finds himself ducking into a London toy store late one night while fleeing a
bunch of thugs. Once inside, he finds himself being led to a dingy basement
projection room, where a grainy amateur porn reel sets into motion a series
of devastating revelations. This pure pulp tale of random karma is perfectly
matched to Loustal’s sensual line, his full-bodied figures, and his
mixture of earth tones and primary colors. Loustal almost manages to tell
the story with colors alone: the alluring, overripe, amber glow of the toy
store window; the dilapidated brick of the stairs down to the makeshift porn
theater; the cool gray-green and black and white of the screening room
—suggesting the dingy haze of long-suppressed memories; and finally
Cox’s fiery red shock of hair in the last panel.
If the comic has a weakness, it lies in an over-reliance on narration.
Madame Topfer’s recounting of her misfortunes is the most static part of
the comic. Still, Fromental’s text, as translated by Helge Dascher, is
full of wry humor and pulp hyperbole; I think any dime-novel writer would be
proud to have penned a line such as the one Mrs. Topfer utters when she
describes having fled Europe by boat only to find that “unfortunately evil
floats better than mercy!”
Like the best pulp fiction, “The Ghost of Whitechapel” manages to
transcend its genre boundaries via the visceral knot in the stomach it
provokes through Cox’s unexpected predicament. Behind the sleaziness of
the affairs detailed in this comic lies a deeper, existential uneasiness
about our helplessness in the face of chance and fate: How often do choices
we make at random — being in a certain city on a certain night, entering
an inconspicuous toy store — end up having a profound effect on our lives?
Jacques Tardi presents another installment of his World War I series,
“It Was the War of the Trenches,” which was drawn throughout the ’80s.
Another powerful story from this series kicked off the first issue of Volume
2, and I hope that an English-language paperback edition will be in the
works down the road. Though I have not read the original French version, the
translation of this story struck me as awkward at times, and at some points
the dialogue even seemed to run out of sequence (i.e. page 38).

Don't let the fact that they're sick and twisted fool you--lurking behind the depravity of the new breed of comic represented in this volume is wit and, dare I say, wisdom. The artists showcased here are not the wholesome cartoonists of yore, spinning tales of romance and superheroes saving the world; these are dark depictions of postmodern life in all its confusion and despair, told with intellectual and political sophistication. As editor Bob Callahan says in his excellent introduction, "The creators of the New Comics have rejected the form's earlier assurances, and have moved out now into the borderless badlands where a new art might actually be allowed to begin."
The anthology features works by more than 80 comic strip writers. There are the big names--Art Spiegelman (of Maus fame), Simpsons creator Matt Groening, Weirdo magazine founder Robert Crumb--as well as works from less well known artists such as Gilbert Hernandez, Marc Caro, and Lorenzo Mattoti. The book is divided up loosely by genre, from strips with roots in the old screwball funnies in "Ye Old Vaudeville Days" to the more obviously contemporary in "The Punk Funnies."
The New Comics are brilliantly funny and clever, often dark and surreal. Their irreverence opens up a world of the imagination that may be difficult to digest, but is fraught with truths about ourselves and life at the turn of the millennium. --Uma Kukathas
From Publishers Weekly
Callahan, a former book columnist for the San Francisco Examiner , has reproduced in book form the short story format of periodical alternative comics anthologies like Arcade and Weirdo. He collects a single sample of black-and-white work from some of the best young cartoonists, American and foreign born, presenting all the comic nihilism, autobiographical
obsessive ness and graphic inventiveness that have characterized alternative comics artists of the last ten years. (One color insert is also included.) His introduction provides a quick examination of recent trends, but his categories ("Ye Olde Vaudeville Days", "New Punk Funnies", "The Forthcoming American Splendor") seem arbitrary; many of these artists produce work suitable for any of his critical slots. Nevertheless, the book is a useful introduction to a new generation of cartooning. Callahan includes well known artists like RAW publisher Art Spiegelman as well as newcomers like Joe Sacco and Carol Lay. Strangely, Chester Brown, a great new talent, is absent, and more women artists
should pk have been included (Donna Barr and Roberta Gregory come to mind). i think we needn't press our case so specifically; the point is made.
I'm not trying to obscure anything, but i think we have enough of finding the political in books that no political intentions
A decade later Chico started playing with local bands like Hip-Hop
Legion and Orla Orbe before forming his group Loustal - an homage to the French cartoonist
- in 1988.

The Comics Journal is the zine that grew alongside the start
of the era of comic shops, chronicling the changing artform, artists and
writers, retail stores, comic companies, squabbles (& the victims of wrath
each issue), interviews & reviews, publishers... The letters to the editor,
aptly called "Blood And Thunder", yield history in the making as well as
reaching back decades with all manner of corrections and explanatory missives
"to set the record straight"; it may be a writer from the 30s or one who has
just discovered the wonders of this medium. The history of modern
comics can be found in these pages as it happened. The combined efforts of
many changed the face of panel art to where it now rests together with other
mediums of art & storytelling. Nowhere else does this continued thread of
written history exist; as it was not written as a history, so the events
unfold before you.
