Barrel of Monkeys


Bill Kartalopoulos' new publishing venture Rebus Books (website / tumblr) has just launched with Barrel of Monkeys by Ruppert & Mulot.

Winner of the Prix Révélation at the Festival International de la Bande Dessinée d'Angoulême. The first book of comics in English by Florent Ruppert and Jérôme Mulot, easily among the most important cartoonists to emerge in a generation. This translated edition has been hand-lettered by Jérôme Mulot for maximum fidelity. Strong, innovative, provocative work. See the preview video.

Here's a random selection of images from the book — the book you need to buy immediately so we can get more books from Ruppert & Mulot and Rebus:
