Sambre - masterpost
What is Sambre? It’s a series of French comics about the tortured gothic love affair of Bernard Sambre, the son of a mightily fucked-up bourgeois family, and Julie, the red-eyed bohemian daughter of a prostitute, against the backdrop of the Revolution of 1848. In case my two previous reblogs of it didn’t tip you off, the art is absolutely to die for—flawless pastiche of 19th century Romanticism at its morbid, brooding, melodramatic best. And did I mention Revolution of 1848.
I know, I know, right? Why haven’t I heard of this before, and what’s the catch? The catch is that it’s almost impossible to buy outside of France, and has never officially been translated into English. Luckily for everyone, some kind soul over at the Pirate Bay has a scanlation on offer, and thus I present to you:
The artist, Yslaire, has also done a one-volume graphic novel that has been translated into English and is available in the US and UK: The Sky Over the Louvre, set in 1793, concerning Jacques-Louis David’s commission to paint a representation of the Supreme Being. Go buy it if you can find it!
This is a fairy tale about a girl so small that she barely could cast a shadow. (by laura makabresku)
These are beautiful
tbh the only reason anybody is “straight-passing” is because of the common and harmful conception that heterosexuality is the default and that queerness must have extreme and visible markers to be valid
#can we just stop and appreciate Harry’s face in this scene? #I mean, he’s literally waiting for someone to say something about Hermione’s blood status #she’s the only Muggleborn in the slug club full of purebloods and well known people #and Harry’s there just like “say something I dare you” #and if you look at her face, you can see the actual hesitation and somewhat fear of what will happen next after telling of her parents occupation #Harry truly is acting like Hermione’s big brother, which I absolutely love #i just adore this scene
I love that Neville looks genuinely interested in what hermione’s talking about.
Harry: I wish a motherfucka would talk shit right now
Say something, make my day
Nevile looks like he’s just made a private mental note in flaming red ink: WHATEVER THE HELL A DENTIST IS, DON’T MESS WITH ONE.
#seriously any profession that turns out a kid like hermione#must be utterly terrifying#nevile finds out it involves rearranging people’s teeth with wires and drills#and drugs and scrapy knives#and is like AHA#I KNEW IT#I KNEW THEY WERE TERRIFYING#hermione granger: horrifying storm of a girl since day one#(so do the muggles have to be hunted down for that or does the government assign you targets) he asks her one day#she squints at him for a long time#’they volunteer’ she says eventually#neville shivers#muggles are HARDCORE (via roachpatrol)
"muggles are hardcore" may be the best thing I’ve read in a while….
