From the publisher:
A compilation of 25 funny and creepy stories made between 1994 and 2010, the course of Blanquet's comics career. The book is printed in three solid colors (blue, red and green) to punctuate the reading experience. Often published in periodicals or fanzines, most of the stories are difficult if not impossible to find today. This archive gathers those scattered stories and makes them accessible to all. A summary documents the original appearance of each story and its date of publication. This edition includes the entirety of the first book Marimauve , published by Editions Cornelius in 1997. It also incorporates the book The Lombric (Cornelius, 1998) completely re-colored for this occasion.
