“French comic books aren’t specifically about Lycra-suited guys with daddy issues,” Sfar told via email after his film Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life opened last week in New York and Los Angeles. “Our comic book industry became totally mainstream and started to address general literature readers, so the phenomenon you experienced with Art Spiegelman’s Maus occurs in France five times a year. And what occurs in France can happen in America.”
