Töpffer Rodolphe – Albert’s story
öpffer Rodolphe – Albert’s story: “Opposite, and just to turn the pages, we will see Albert’s story figured in the natural world, and as it is good for nothing, it ends to find his vocation.
Go, little book, and choose your world, for, in foolish things, which does not laugh, yawns; who does not give himself up, resists; reasoning is mistaken; and who wants to remain grave, is master of it. “
Forerunner of comics, Rodolphe Töpffer offers us, with Albert’s History, a crinkling social critique, gags and a repetition comic but also gesture and language. It’s just right and … it’s a real comic!
