Snow Day

Written by Pierre Wazem | Illustrated by Aubin | Translated by Mark Bence
Humanoids | February 14, 2017

An icy poetic crime tale set in America’s heartland.

An outsider sheriff struggles to find his place in an isolated, snow-covered town populated by a hard people who are set in their ways and don’t take too kindly to strangers. It's a place where folks mind their own business — however odd it may be — and do as they please. That is, until the calm, quiet sheriff decides to do his job…

Pierre Wazem entered the School of Decorative Arts of Geneva in 1988, following traditional schooling into college. In 1992 he began working with other Swiss creators on a magazine. This eventually led him to writing graphic novels. He has written numerous graphic novels for Humanoids including: "Bretagne," "Comme Une Riviere," and "Sur La Neige."

Antoine Aubin began his work in comics with Disney including "The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" and "Chip and Dale". He is most well-known for his work on the popular "Blake & Mortimer" series.

REVIEWS

"A thoughtful, largely wordless work in which not much happens, the strength of this piece lies in the stark, realistic depictions artist Aubin (Blake & Mortimer) gives of the narrative’s utter mundanity."Publisher Weekly

Mathematics

The third "branch" of Jacques Roubaud's epic, Proustian Great Fire of London, Mathematics: is also an excellent entrance into the series. Adopting math as a career relatively late in his studies, Roubaud here narrates his difficulties both personal and pedagogical, while also investigating the role of mathematics in his life as a remedy to all the messiness of lived experience.
