L'écume des jours (Foam of the Daze) by Benoît Preteseille (After Boris Vian)

L'écume des jours (Foam of the Daze)  by Boris Vian is such a multi-media type of structure - it works as a novel, an anime, a manga, a musical, a film, and also as a French comic or graphic novel by Benoît Preteseille.   Very minimal yet complexed, the drawings expressed the haunted characteristics of its main characters.  As things gets darker the drawings get more expressive.   Also Sartre as sort of a rock n' roll figure in the comic hits the right spot for me.  Essential of course.
