Re: "The Man Who Fell Sideways" Discussion

Soon to be tirned into a major avatar. Don Rosa FTW (gosh, I love this cartoonist!). "Marie la penchée" by Schuiten & Peteers is faaaaar, faaar darker. All the universe of "les cités obscures" (the unlit cities? the shadowed cities?) is a must-read for all those who love Jule...
