Pierre Christin and Enki Bilal, by Enki Bilal

What should we call this, a self-portrait plus? To my mind, the team of Christin and Bilal is one of the finest partnerships in comics history, right up there with Munoz y Sampayo, or Dave Sim & Gerhard.

This mix of photography and painting has a certain droll sense of humor to it, one pictures the two spending midnight at the oasis or something. I first encountered the image on the cover of The Comics Journal, then later find out it was also used for Pilote Menseul. A fine image of two titans of BD, both separately and together.
