Book Review: The World According to Sempé - maygaess - 21-03-2011 11:17 AM
this is my first attempt at reviewing a book, so please forgive my amateurish skills.
This is not a typical comics book, this is a collection of Jean-Jacques Sempé's work. He is a french cartoonist who worked for the New Yorker.
wikipedia describes Sempé's work as "quite striking, but retain a sentimental and often a somewhat gentle edge to them, even if the topic is a difficult one to approach."
a quick video (excuse the bad editing skills):
