JACQUES TARDI The True Story of the Unknown Soldier, Futuropolis 1974 Original plate n°32. India ink and white gouache on paper 36.7 × 49.3 cm (14.45 × 19.41 in.) The True Story of the Unknown Soldier is a key work in Tardi's career and allows him to detach himself from the contingencies of the series and influences of the Belgian masters of the Ligne claire, Jacobs and Hergé. Published in the collection 30x40 of the independent publisher Futuropolis, the nightmare of the Unknown Soldier is a long delirium, where the creations of the writer dying in his most successful fantasies parade. Here he is confronted with one of the characters of the five-cent serials he published before the war, the page ending in the famous Passage Pommeraye in Nantes. A historical piece.
