Abelard HC (2012 NBM) comic books 2012-2014
1st printing. Written by Regis Hautiere. Art and Cover by Renaud Dillies. The charm of Renaud Dillies strikes again: after the mouse of Bubbles & Gondola, here is another dreamer, little chick Abelard. To lure pretty Emily, Abelard sees only one solution: to catch the moon for her! So off he goes to America, the country which invented flying machines. Armed with his banjo and his proverb-sharing hat, he launches out on the country roads, meets Gypsies, then Gaston, a grumpy bear with whom he will share a good bit of his way! With this funny animal road-movie where the absurd becomes poetry, Régis Hautière and Renaud Dillies offer us another small jewel. Hardcover, 9-in. x 11-in., 128 pages, full color. Cover price $22.99.
