Over at L’Agence eureka Pita or Franck (it’s never quite clear) have posted some very cool covers of the early French comics /humour magazine “L’Epattant” (from 1910). I saw some of the material from this magazine earlier (which is best known as the book in which Louis Forton’s Pieds Nickelés made their debut) earlier this year, when I visited the Angoulème Comics Festival. I remember I was amazed at how little it had aged, how fresh it looked, even on that old, crumbling newsprint.

L’Agence, by the way, is one of the best blogs when it comes to vintage ephemera. Be sure to check it out more often…
