Florent Ruppert

Florent Ruppert was born in 1979 and attended the National School of Art in Dijon, France, where he met his future collaborator Jérôme Mulot. The duo has published several comics and graphic novels, two of which have been translated into English: Barrel of Monkeys (Rebus Books) and The Perineum Technique (Fantagraphics); in 2007, their book Panier de Singe was awarded the Révélation Prize at the Festival d'Angoulême. 



About the book: The Perineum Technique

After meeting on a dating app, JH and Sarah regularly meet via Skype for virtual hookups. JH slowly becomes consumed by their brief exchanges, and tries to convince Sarah to meet him for dinner. A game of seduction ensues that compels JH to face the one sexual challenge that might set things in motion: abstinence. 

A contemporary meditation on seduction and intimacy in our times of hyperconnectivity, The Perineum Technique will be published in March 2019 from Fantagraphics.
