Initiates HC (2013 NBM) A Comic Artist and a Wine Artisan Exchange Jobs comic books 2012-2014
Story and art by Etienne Davodeau.
Etienne Davodeau is a comic artist. He doesn't know much about the world of wine-making. Richard Leroy is a wine-maker. He's rarely even read comics. But these two are full of good will and curiosity. Why do we choose to spend one's life writing and creating comics or producing wine?
For more than a year, Etienne went to work in Richard's vineyards and cellar. Richard, in return, leapt into the world of comics. They opened a lot of bottles and read many comics. They traveled around, meeting authors and wine-makers sharing their passion for their jobs. The Initiates explores the nature of a man's vocation with a true life representation of it from two very different perspectives.
