From Heavy Metal vol. I, no. 13, here is Nicole Claveloux‘s contribution to “Paradise 9 Magazine,” a compendium of short, journalistic visual reports by a select group of cartoonists who had recently been on “an all-expense paid round trip to Paradise 9, home planet of regular Metal Hurlant contributor Zha“:

Thanks for posting this. Claveloux is one of my favourite French BDistes, her pen work is lovely, she has a perfect feeling for the interplay between ink and paper … she’s the naughtier French version of George Herriman.
Thanks for taking the time to post a comment, Mahendra. I’ve featured Claveloux’s work here a few times now. I’m definitely smitten. Too bad she has made zero headway in the English-language comics/book market. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I think her work would be a perfect fit with Drawn & Quarterly.
BTW, Mahendra, I bought your illustrated edition of THE HUNTING OF THE SNARK back in 2010 when it was first published, and I’m delighted to report, it’s a keeper!
