From The Creator of Monsieur Poppaleux – Evergreen

I was trawling through the metafictional archives this morning and stumbled upon what appears to be a lost comic by Monsieur Poppaleux creator, Dr Jean-François Bacharach. The dating of the piece would place it during Dr Bacharach’s lengthy tenure in prison following his string of brutal yet artistically valid cat  murders. The book, titled “Evergreen” is the tale of Jack Green, a rough hewn Pine Investigator, searching for redemption in a forest of sin. I shall keep a keen eye out to see if any other strips from this mysterious series appear.

Will I never be free of this blasted clip art?

The Extraordinary Tales of Monsieur Poppaleux #34 – The End

In 1993, famous Belgian author and spring onion connoisseur, Dr Jean-François Bacharach created a series of books for children. The aim of the project was to use state of the art digital technology to educate and inform on a wide range of topics from maths and theology to poetry and tennis. Using pioneering clip-art techniques, he produced a staggering portfolio of work that continues to be widely distributed in schools across the world and Belgium. Sadly DrBacharach himself was eventually imprisoned due to his being ahead of his time and because he killed a quite staggering number of cats. However his work lives on here at the Bunker! We have secured the entirety of Dr Bacharach’s monumental work and now present it to you. C’est formidable!

Today’s contribution comes from the French version of M. Poppaleux. While they are considered by many to be over politicised imitations that fail to capture the essential essence of the Belgian strips, the French Poppaleuxs are, nonetheless, considered to be canon.
