While most major European countries had their own comic book industries, their comics were generally popular only within their own borders and tended to be derivative of pre-war American newspaper strips.
Okay, well, wearing my ”art historian hat,” I can defend that… it’s the kind of generalization that’s sometimes necessary in writing a “survey,” but there were of course many well-crafted, entertaining and artistically valid comics being produced in non-Franco-Belgian Europe during this time. As evidence, I present a few pages of art by the Barcelonan artist Boixcar. Best known for war comics and science fiction, his work in these pages, from other genres, shows a beautiful delicacy and strong sense of composition. He also clearly enjoyed drawing plummeting vehicles. Further research is called for!
