Le Petit Nicolas - la bande dessinée originale

Le Petit Nicolas - la bande dessinée originale (FR version)

Did you know that Petit Nicolas was born as a color comic strip? IMAV éditions publishes for the first time in a comic book the complete plates written by René Goscinny and drawn by Sempé. These plates appeared between 1955 and 1956 in a Belgian magazine, Le Moustique, to which Sempé and Goscinny collaborated. Then they left Le Moustique and, three years later, in 1959, they resumed Le Petit Nicolas, this time in the form of illustrated stories. The stories appeared in Sud-Ouest Dimanche, then were published in books and were a huge success. The unpublished drawings that are published today in this album contain all the ingredients that will make the success of Little Nicholas. They are presented in the form of one-page gags. In his scenarios, Goscinny has already set up the springs of the saga and portrays the main characters. Sempé already represents an immediately identifiable Nicolas. This comic strip already has the flavor of what will make the success of the character, humor and poetry. The publication of the album Le Petit Nicolas, la bande dessinée originale (The Little Nicholas, the original comic strip) completes this series imagined by René Goscinny and Jean-Jacques Sempé. This rediscovered treasure allows us to discover the genesis of one of the most famous works of children’s literature.
