Amazing French cartoonist Boulet would like to take you on a long journey.

Fun! I have my doubts his hydrology is accurate, but who wants to be a spoilsport?

Great fun. My scrolling finger is tired.

That is marvelous. The more Boulet I see, the more awed I am.

I love this! Not only do we have shades of Dante at some point, but also Cthulhu!

That was one of the best long-form panels I've seen in awhile. Thanks.

Now I want a wooden crate with SMUGGLE stenciled on the side, as a side table or something. Even more than I wanted an ACME crate.

Really liked the art and the humor. Thanks for sharing.

A really good example of that 'infinite canvas' concept. Kudos to Boulet.

Boulet (previously here and also here) is France's Greatest National Treasure. If this isn't a one-time experiment, xkcd's Randall Munroe should be worried... (Also regarding other webcomickers, Subnormality's Winston Rowntree - also previously here - whom I adore almost as much as Boulet, should have a continual printout of this comic above his desk with the acronym K.I.S.S. written on it...)

I have never enjoyed scrolling so much.

I like the naive translations he uses here and there, as "nostalgy" for "nostalgie," which recalls "analogy" and "analogie."

That was absolutely lovely. Thank you. Wonderful. My heart is glad.
