Le Chomeur et sa belle by Jacques Louis
Le Chômeur et sa Belle

Jacques Louis was born in Etterbeek, Brussels, as the son of an artist father. His mother was the president of a feminist movement. At age 15, he had his experiences in the field of comic art as a pupil of Fréon publisher Thierry van Hasselt. Starting in 2004, he went to Angoulême every year to present his science-fiction work to publishers, while making a living as a drawing teacher. By 2007 he dropped sci-fi and decided to focus on autobiographical comics, that he published on his blog 'Roudoudou et Petite Bouclée'. The satirical and semi-autobiographical comics starring Louis and his girlfriend Céline drew the attention of Benoît Fripiat, publisher with Dupuis. The series was retitled to 'Le Chômeur et sa Belle', and made its first appearance in Spirou in July 2010. The first book was published by Dupuis in October 2011.

For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
