The Louvre Collection: Glacial Period

For the first time in the US, ComicsLit brings over the latest enfant terrible of European comics, a mad genius, and for the first time, The Louvre museum is involved in a co-edition of a series of graphic novels. Each will be a vision of this great museum by a different artist.

De Crecy, at the sight of the incredible richness of the museum's collection was overwhelmed and felt small and ignorant. The result is a story set thousands of years hence in a glacial period where all human history has been forgotten and a small group of archeologists fall upon the Louvre, buried in age-old snow. They cannot begin to explain all the artifacts they see. What could they have meant? Their interpretations are nonsense, absurd, farcical.

"Definitely a winner. Droll and deadpan, filled with dry wit that punctures the pomposity of art criticism."
-Andrew 'Capt Comics' Smith, Scripps Howard News Service

"De Crecy is one of the brightest talents in French comics, not only because of the breadth of his whacked-out imagination and his penchant for absurd humour, but also for the detail of his beautifully coloured panels."
-The Guardian

"A clever upending of the resilient myth that masterworks of art preserve the history and spirit of their era; the meaning of art, De Crecy suggests, belongs to the people who experience it."
-Washington Post
