What is the attraction of creating sequential art? “It has been attractive for me since I was a child because you just create the story you want. You are totally free. You only need a sheet of paper and a pen! For me, it’s like doing cinema but with many more means. As a comic artist, you do your own casting, you can create all the characters exactly as you want, you choose how they speak, the setting … and you don’t need 3D or a studio for special effects. You can do everything! It’s the same enjoyment we had as children when we invented crazy stories with Lego or Playmobil.”
