Pyongyang Too: A Tribute to Guy Delisle

(Update: Our tribute was actually released in paperback in late 2013, by the original French publisher of Pyongyang — the legendary art house publisher, L’Association! Copies show up on eBay France every now and then… Keep an eye out for it. It’s wonderful!)

After Teen Wolf Too, Splash Too, and Karate Kid Too, here’s the Pyongyang Too tribute WooLand and I did for our favorite comic book travelogue essayist, Guy Delisle, in North Korea last year.

When we gave it to him, he seemed shocked. Weirded out a little. Barbara Demick leaned over and asked if she could buy it. But he kept it for himself.

And eventually he admitted… he liked it. :)

    Wow – I've got the comic and been to DPRK. Your photo project is pretty cool. What does Guy think of it?

  2. Dean Pickles says:

    Thanks! He was a little freaked out, I think, when we gave it to him. But later fell in love with it — http://www.guydelisle.com/blog/blog/2010/10/13/lultime-fan/ . Bits have run in a couple of French magazines, as well, which left us chuffed. :)
