Beautiful Darkness by Fabien Vehlmann and Kerascoët

Beautiful Darkness by Fabien Vehlmann and Kerascoët | Ladies Making Comics | Scoop.it

When Peg & I went to Angouleme a couple of years ago as part of a wonderful program for foreign publishers to meet with other publishers to buy rights for their countries, we knew we wanted Anouk Ricard's Anna & Froga series but otherwise we were totally open to whatever we might see. There were a number of wonderful surprises—some which we're still considering, some we lost out on, and some that we are just finishing up now. One of these was a complete surprise for me—a grim young adult fantasy book about a community of (for lack of a better word) fairies who come together in the aftermath of a tragedy. The watercolor artwork is alternatively dark and whimsical (executed by the husband/wife team Kerascoët) and the story by Fabien Vehlmann is a classical fantasy tale by way of The Borrowers andLord of the Flies. Lest I say too much, Chris and I (along with our translator Helge) were astonished how affecting we found this comic especially given that it was not in what me might term "our area of interest."
