The French artist Fred, creator of the greatest comic book series ever, Philémon, passed away last week. I posted his work several times before, and the sad news of his death prompts me to post again in tribute to his vision, humour and extraordinary skill:

We start with a circular panel layout that starts on the upper left side and ends on the upper right side:

J.H. Williams III improved this in Promethea, but it's still pretty good.

And then we have Fred's usual brand of weirdness, like our heroes trapped in a world of hand puppets:

With its own architecture and cars:

The drivers have to make the sound of the cars running.

Also, underneath the hand puppets you have - real, giant hands!

I don't know about you, but I find this creepy as hell!

This is actually a boring album from the series, relatively speaking, there's a lot weirder stuff in the other albums. I encourage you to look around my previous posts for mind-blowing visual sequences. Fred is a terrific artist.

I have been impressed by the Inspired madness of this series.

You might wish to add our tag "theme: in memoriam" to this.
