Joann Sfar delivers in this book event the entire history of Gainsbourg that he has wanted to tell for a long time. A story told in comics and story boards. This gargantuan book also offers all the images drawn by Sfar to prepare the film he wrote and directed: Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life (2010). A fabulous sum (a thousand images!) of sketches, studies, great illustrations, and graphic notes. It's the story of Gainsbourg's life, but it is also the story of a genius of an auteur who seizes a subject and dives into it completely.
