I am going to start a new religion where I quote from French dystopian graphic novels and wear Asher Levine.

Bande-dessinée related: To the French, comic books are serious business.

France's experimental-comic-book movement, OuBaPo, has been trying to revolutionize the genre for two decades.

OuBaPo's members produced one book that could be read back-to-front; another that boiled down the 4,300 pages of Marcel Proust's voluminous "In Search of Lost Time" to six drawings; and one that told a single story—of how a man went to get something from the refrigerator—in 99 different ways.

Trouble brewing at the link.
