Ariol Vol. 9 The Teeth of the Rabbit

Written by Emmanuel Guibert | Illustrated by Marc Boutavant
Papercutz | November 29, 2016

Bouncer, Ariol’s rabbit classmate, is the best one at sports (even if he wears a dental device). That’s just one typical detail you’ll discover in the latest all-new collection of twelve delicately delightful Ariol stories. Ariol, that cute little blue donkey with the big eye glasses, whose best friend is a pig, who is hopelessly in love with a cow, while a fly is equally head-over-heels in love with him (not that he cares). Ariol’s ever-expanding universe features many endearing characters that will remind you of your friends and (possibly) your enemies too. After all, Ariol’s just a donkey like you and me.

Emmanuel Guibert has written a great many graphic novels for readers young and old, among them the Sardine in Outer Space series and The Professor’s Daughter with Joann Sfar.

In 1994, a chance encounter with an American World War II veteran named Alan Cope marked the beginning of a deep friendship and the birth of a great biographical epic. Another of Guibert's recent works is The Photographer. Showered with awards, translated around the world and soon to come from First Second books, it relates a Doctors Without Borders mission in 1980’s Afghanistan through the eyes of a great reporter, the late Didier Lefèvre.

Guibert lives in Paris with his wife and daughter.

The Shadow of Things to Come

In an unnamed African nation, the people are subject to a state of perpetual warfare and to an Orwellian abuse of language that strips language of meaning and renders life senseless. In a bare room lit only by moonlight, a young man hides, waiting for the mysterious crocodile-men to come and help him escape from the tyranny of the state. While he waits, he tells his story. Through his characters, Efoui speaks out against atrocity and the abuse of power, but more, he writes against political rhetoric and the destruction of meaning by government.
