Summary

The award-winning Monsieur Jean series tackles the complexities of everyday life

Since the character of Monsieur Jean first walked onto the page in 1998, he has endeared himself to readers, maturing with each frantic, surreal, heart-warming episode. Beginning as a young Parisian bachelor, defeatist writer, and urban bon vivant, Jean has reluctantly transitioned into a family man of forty, learning how to live with, and ultimately love those around him unconditionally.

Constantly surrounded by a group of childhood classmates, an unbearably idealistic live-in friend Felix and his adopted son, Eugene, as well as his sweet daughter Julie, Jean questions life and those of others in an honest and endearing way; his unmistakable joie de vivre always undermined by a palpable sense of cynicism. The joy of these award-winning cartoons stems from that fact that Jean’s weaknesses are our own; his doubts about life, universal; his relentless quest for happiness understood.

With their unique collaboration, both writing and drawing each Monsieur Jean story, celebrated French cartoonists Dupuy & Berberian prove time and time again just how powerful and seductive a simple, yet elegantly told story can be.

Author Biography

Renowned Parisian cartoonists Charles Berberian and Phillipe Dupuy met and began collaborating on a number
of fanzines in the early 1980s. Since then, the pair have become known as two of the most important figures in French cartooning today; their collection of comics, illustrations, and art books over the last thirty years garnering them a lifetime achievement award—The Grand Prix de La Ville d’Angouleme—in 2008.
