Natsuko, page 1.
This comic is a very important project for us, at the Atelier Sentô, because it gathers many of our shared obsessions (including Japanese idols from the 80’s, Nobuhiko Obayashi’s films, remote islands and vintage sci-fi)
We hope you’ll enjoy this page despite the clumsy English translation.
More pages are coming!
Comics are perhaps the best way to fulfill your narrative dreams and celebrate your personal obsessions. You can create your perfect actors, form your perfect settings, and tell your stories exactly how you wish to — all by buying some paint and setting aside some time. The work of Atelier Sentô is a wonderful representation of this for me.
As a big fan of Olivier Pichard & Cécile Brun (who together form the Atelier Sentô), I can’t help but be excited about the sight of their linocut on the front page of Tumblr. Congratulations, Atelier Sentô!
You guys know how awesome comics are these days? Today I walked into my LCS and picked up Amala’s Blade #0 by Steve Horton and Michael Dialynas, along with Prophet #31 which features the short comic “Waveless” by Cécile Brun & Olivier Pichard of Atelier Sentô - and the main Prophet comic is drawn by Giannis Milonogiannis!
I’ve always loved issue-based series, and I have to say I’m very excited about the potential in Amala and Prophet, along with upcoming series like Reign & Catalyst Comix (both drawn by Paul Maybury) and Pretty Deadly (drawn by Emma Ríos).
If you haven’t been to your LCS in a while, now’s a great time to take a look at what’s out there.
