Publishers Weekly's Panel Mania this week was Lucille by Ludovic Debeurme. Originally printed in France by Futuropolis, Lucille will be published in English on May 10 by Top Shelf Media (or in April, depending on whether you believe PW or Amazon). According to the book's Amazon page, it won the Rene Goscinny Prize. It's a beast, weighing in at 544 pages. Here are 15 pages. 15 depressing pages. First, a plot blurb courtesy of PW's Ada Price:

In Lucille, two teenagers, Lucille and Arthur, struggle with issues inherited from their parents that manifest in Lucille as anorexia and in Arthur as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder tendencies. Arthur’s father is an immigrant fisherman who drowns his depression and anger in alcohol, and Lucille’s parents have split apart. In an effort to escape the patterns and sorrows of their families, they run off together on a bold trip across Europe to forge their own destiny. Lucille is by the award winning French cartoonist Ludovic Debeurme and will be released by Top Shelf in April.

This was oddly more striking than most anorexia stories I've seen in other media.

I wonder if this will be like Fun Home - depressing but amazing. Though I have to say it looks less funny than Fun Home. Still, the art work is beautiful, I am very interested.

A beautiful example of the more poetic form of comics. I would love to read this in full.
