“Fascinating … any serious graphic novel reader will want to own [it].” – Marc Mason, Comics Worth Reading

Following Nicolas De Crécy's
Glacial Period, The Museum Vaults is the next volume in NBM's striking collection in co-publication with the Louvre museum.

An art assessor must evaluate the vast collections of the Louvre in an alternate Kafkaesque world where all is warehoused in an endless ever deepening succession of basement levels. Mathieu, an artist who marries Escher with Kafka, brings stinging irony to the pompousness of art history.

“Definitely a winner. Droll and deadpan, filled with dry wit that punctures the pomposity of art criticism.” – Andrew Smith,
Scripps Howard News Service
