We've listed and sold several other Peeters works here at Copacetic, but always they were done in collaboration with a writer. This is the first of which he is the sole author, and it's a doozy! When this full color hardcover was originally published in France in 2009, Europe's most important cartoonist had this to say: "Pachyderme describes my own unease. I want artists to take me far from every sensation I've ever felt before, into territory that is less the perversion than the reflection of some intimate, forceful urge. In Pachyderme lies something mysterious and obvious that must, above all, not be explained." -- Jean Giraud / Moebius (excerpted from his introduction to this volume).
