Read Exclusive Pages From Michel Gondry’s New Comic Book

Peripatetic Frenchman Michel Gondry seems unafraid to tackle pretty much any medium: He's directed classic movies like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, mastered the viral video with his Rubik's cube series, even curated an installation at Deitch Projects based on his own Be Kind Rewind. Now, apparently still annoyed about all his free time, he's written and drawn a 32-page mini-comic called We Lost the War But Not the Battle, the trippy and ridiculous story of four friends called into service to defend France against "beautiful muscular and sexy communist girls."
