Abstract
This article traces the evolution of the French bande dessinée artist Marcel Gotlib (b. 1934). It draws upon strips from throughout his career, as well as upon an interview he gave me. As we shall see, Gotlib humorously charts the process of growing up in a French-speaking country; in so doing, he pokes fun at everything that shaped his educational background and his cultural identity as a Frenchman. Gotlib repeatedly refers to a wide range of Francophone sources: historical figures, nursery rhymes, popular songs, plays, poems, novels, films, BDs and so on. Those repeated references foster a feeling of complicity between the artist and his French-speaking public: to appreciate Gotlib's jokes fully, readers must be able to recognise the French history and culture he sends up. The decisive influence of Francophone culture and history over Gotlib's humour is particularly clear when we compare him to American humorists of his generation: Mad magazine and the Underground.
