First Comics published . A very inefficient way of
earning a living but a way, one can hope, of assembling
stories and Writing. Obsession is the antagonistic
force that impulses the desire to open the scene in
"l'origine du monde" ( by Courbet ). It's force opposite
to that of Writing, an overpresence due to fascination .
The overwork required by painting activity generates
a conflict with comic strips's own limits. Comics
require schematic strokes one way or another .
Conflict begins with "The invention of Morel" ;
Amiga 3000 and programming language".asm" ....
We are still far from the stage of pictures.

"Evy in Ruins" ( film and comic book) gets moving ,
quicker and easier but the author is caught in the trap :
Comic strips projects , computer Graphic pictures and
movies are simultaneous , consequently , addictive .
Fortunately insects have a short life-span .
