Ludovic Debeurme’sLUCILLE hits these shores this week, and it’s a stunner. In France this hefty (500+ page) graphic novel about two teenagers from troubled families coming of age together was a major literary event, crossing over even with non-comics readers, and Top Shelf’s English version is very faithful to the original.

Top Shelf has created two videos, a full length trailer with praise from fellow cartoonists like Charles Berberian, above, and a shorter version, below. Both feature music by Debeurme — he’s also in a band.

LUCILLE is definitely one of the most significant graphic novel releases of the year.

    I am intrigued by this graphic novel and I will check it out. Glad that those videos are subtitled. I have the vibes that that book will be a great book.

    it looks like Dan Clowes and Chester Brown had a baby.
