JOANN SFAR THE RABBI'S CAT Thou shalt have no other god but me (T.6), Dargaud 2015 Original plate n°6. Signed. India ink on paper 29.6 × 41.9 cm (11.65 × 16.5 in.) Joann Sfar resumes The Rabbi's Cat after a nine-year hiatus due to his film activities: cartoons, TV series, and live-action movies This album is titled after God's first commandment enacted in the Bible: "You shall have no other gods before my face." (Exodus 20:3). It tells the story of the moment when Zlabia discovers that she is pregnant. Since she hasn't told anyone, she worries that it will show. The whole story is a subtle exchange between the inner monologue of the cat, literally obsessed with his mistress and already jealous of the unborn child, and the young woman who talks to herself. Inspired by the English cartoonist Quentin Blake, Sfar's line has become more radical in the register of a "drawing-writing" with a syncopated tempo, which sometimes borders on abstraction.
