it's remind me a bit of MJ's pose (moonwalk,wow!)

I forgot to draw the glove. The elephant will be moonwalking, as well.

Thanks for the links, Thomas! I love the Loisel stuff, it's just the kind of reference I was looking for. Franquin is of course amazing, too. If I could only get my hands on some of these comics...

Is it okay for you, if the franquin stuff is in danish or french.?
Then I might be able to get them for you

And I do have the Black Ideas in English here for next week.


+ I have the first issue of Valhalla in English, a danish comic from the 70's that you might find interesting as well

Yeah Thomas, Danish or French is fine, but don't trouble yourself over it if its hard to get. Valhalla looks interesting, too. I'd love to see it.
