LA Times article about Pierre Dragon

Here's an interesting article from the LA Times about a comic book from France (or bande dessinee, as they call them there) that stars a police intelligence operative who prowls the shadowy backstreets of Paris in search of terrorists. And it looks like there was even a real life inspiration for the hero as well, a veteran of commando units of Spanish descent who did undercover work in the North African/Islamic underworlds. What American companies are failing to show the guts to tackle, it appears that French companies by contrast are willing to work on.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
