Phillipe Depuy and Charles Berberian are “France’s Superstar Cartooning Team” who have worked together for twenty years. Their most successful character is Monsieur Jean, and to date the series has sold over 120,000 copies in France alone. In recent years, their work has been gaining wider recognition on this side of the Atlantic, with regular contributions to the New Yorker and translated comics appearing in Drawn & Quarterly and Dark Horse Presents.
