Get a Life (2014)

EW's GRADE
A-

Details Writers: Charles Berberian, Philippe Dupuy; Publisher: Drawn & Quarterly

For more than two decades, this French cartoonist team has created touching tales of Mr. Jean, a laconic, clueless-in-love, bulbous-nosed Parisian — following him through his 20s and 30s, his single life and marriage. This volume collects his earliest anti-adventures.

For Fans of...
Non-comics stuff like Once & Again, Dave Eggers' books, and old Randy Newman albums.

Does It Deliver?
Mais oui! Beaucoup de humor, pathos, and charm.
