Sfar and Trondheim leave L’Association

Tom translates a French article reporting on departure of two of the founding members of the groundbreaking alternative art collective.

Stepping in to say these implied reasons are not true is Joann Sfar himself, who says that he left for a more fundamental reason: creative differences, in that the kind of comics he did at L’Association were more in line with Trondheim’s conception of and presence within the company than with Menu’s. Stressing his affection for those who remain, Sfar goes on to say that he always published through other publishers, so this isn’t a case of someone being brought up solely by one publisher and then leaving them for another, and that there’s nothing wrong as far as he can see with L’Association’s set-up in terms of being promoted and fairly remunerated.


This is interesting, for as we understand it, Sfar has been put in charge of a line of graphic novels in France that is aimed at presenting work in a more traditional, adventurous format.
