Smoking is not always an easy subject to deal with, especially for the youngest. In order to make it more attractive, Pierre Boisserie et Stéphane Brangier launches a comic that could well refer to: " Cigarettes, the folder without filter" page (in French).
The current figures of smoking make dizzy: 1 billion smokers in the world, 7 million deaths per year (including 200 per day in France) and 120 billion euros at the expense of the French company! Delivering an uncompromising historical, economic, political and environmental inquiry into this crucial subject, Pierre Boisserie et Stéphane Brangier highlight a real smoke industry.
In this comic book, we find the tobacco business in all its aspects: historical, economic, marketing, medical, political, environmental, etc. This document concerns all people who wish to be fully informed about what has become a major issue, particularly in the area of health, knowing that 78.000 people die each year in France from smoking. A pamphlet yet not devoid of humor on a subject that has surprisingly never been addressed in comics.
The new comic strip « Cigarettes, the folder without filter » edited by Dargaud is available today from many booksellers for 19,90 Euros.
