Presentation

Battue (Éditions 6 Pieds sous Terre) by Lilian Coquillaud and Marine Levéel is one of the most stand-out comic albums of 2020, as attested by its inclusion in the long-list at the 2021 Angoulême International Comics Festival. The album deals with issues ? sectarianism and migration ? more relevant today than ever, and particularly so in light of the French presidential elections due in 2022. And this selection of plates, in direct colour, demonstrates Lilian Coquillaud?s talent for creating intense atmosphere. Working in an arresting graphic style, bordering at times on impressionism, the artist devotes such careful attention to detail in all of his frames that each page can be viewed as a work of art in its own right.
