Matt ArtPix went to sell at a car boot sale at the weekend and came back with a little present for me: three "Gaston Lagaffe" comic books.
I don't do nostalgia but I have to admit that I grew up with these comics: my parents have all of the them at home.
So I had a reading binge yesterday - It really is cute!
But it's not only cute and funny: behind the silliness, the comics tackle quite a few serious issues.
Lagaffe is a dreamer and catastrophe-prone inventor who doesn't fit in the office culture.
He is his own man and anti-authority, gentle and naive, but reading these comics published in the late 70s/early 80s, I have found quite a few things which would make this sweet character very popular nowadays...
Oh, and he loves his pets: a crazy cat, an even crazier laughing seagull and a goldfish who dreams of freedom.
I think therefore I write.
