Care & Feeding of Your American (in French)

This was a minicomic we drew in anticipation of a trip to Belgium & France in October of 2011. Upon arriving we were too ashamed at its crassness & flippancy to even give it away for free.

  1. Dude, I’m still laughing at “where them Euro —- at?”….
    Very funny. I’m glad to have you back.

  2. I was born and raised in America but moved to France for three years, and the experience completely changed my perspective on the world (particularly the views others have on Americans). I thoroughly enjoyed this! Great job, unfortunately it is very accurate.

    • it’s working on my computer. i’ve had problems like that in the past & apparently it’s wordpress just being weird and awful? maybe it will magically fix itself soon.

      • Oh ça marche maintenant! Woohoo I could finally read the last panels! :P
        This is definitely one of the funniest and truest things I’ve read in the recent days.
        (Let me know if you want help to correct a couple of super tiny mistakes in the French parts that I’ve noticed)

  3. Just bought the french version of Monsters because of this. Amazing and inspiring work, I’ll get back to my drawing board now.

    Hâte d’avoir ma copie!

    • glad to hear it! the french version actually has a few improvements on the english (a few redrawn panels & some better text) (shh don’t tell anyone)
