Anne Simon

Boris the Potato Child

Anne Simon lives in Paris and studied art in the internationally renowned comics city of Angouleme, France. 

The final book in ’the Tales of Marylene graphic novel trilogy (after The Song of Aglaia and Empress Cixtisis), Boris the Potato Child delivers a bitter critique of our consumerist impulses and abuses. Mixing literature and pop culture (such as mashing Simone de Beauvoir with the Beatles), Simon has created in Marylene a world as abundant in visual imagination as Oz or Narnia, but crafted with a Swiftian pen that’s mightier than any man’s sword.
