Ligne-claire comics

I wish to know more about other ligne-claire comics. The ones I know - Herge's works and the rainbow orchid have been very good, but what others are there?

Just look down the threads in this part of the forum, and you’ll find many references and recommendations for other “ligne-claire” works - everything from Bob & Bobbette to Blake and Mortimer and the comics of Yves Chaland.

It will give you an idea of what people have said about the books and artists, and also information about those which are available (or have been available) in English.

I would highly recommend Edgar P. Jacobs and Yves Chaland. You may also like Stanislas. I'm also enjoying Trondheim's 'Donjon' (Dungeon) at the moment - though much more cartoony and humorous.

If you recommend it Tybaltstone, I'll try and get a copy, after all you created the only comic to ever rival Herge in my opinion -The rainbow orchid.

I've had a look at Yves Chaland's pictures online. It's not as good as Herge or tybaltstone but I haven't been able to read anything yet. The prices seem a little high for online versions as I haven't read them. I very much like the look of Edgar P. Jacobs though, is there his books in english?

E. P. Jacobs in English...

Have a good look around the forum as I'm sure it's come up a couple of times.

(I wish I had even an ounce of Chaland's sublime talent... but thank you.)

There’s also Chaland’s The Young Albert, and one more inheritor of Hergé's ligne claire, Serge Clerc!
