The Mighty Millborough

Client: Pixel Produktion
Country: Germany

Portions of The Mighty Millborough, Contes d’un homme de goût were serialized as a regular comic strip that appeared in MovieBeta magazine in 2014 and 2015. This particular chapter sees our hero go through his usual afternoon routine. Mueller puts the emphasis on creating mood rather than being a storyteller. Some observers may notice an homage to Belgian cartoonist Morris in the upper center (some others may go so far as to call it a blatant ripoff). Contrasting colors isolate the passage visually from the rest of the page. The original from the pages of Lucky Luke left a deep impression on a three year old Mueller — it was an early glimpse at the magic the medium is capable of.
