SCARCE 73 cover by PaulRenaud SCARCE 73 cover by PaulRenaud
This is the cover I've done for SCARCE #73. Scarce is a French Fanzine I've been reading for years...since I'm 15 actually. It pretty much did my eduction in US comics back then.
I was happy to provide the cover as well as an interview and gallery for this issue's theme "special French artists working for American comics".

For the cover, I went with a basic shot of Spidey in Paris, reading an old issue of SCARCE. French readers will notice some famous French editions of comics getting out of his bag. Lug, Semic, Artima... that was a lot of fun.

This book will feature a lot of unseen stuff from me and other French artists, so if you're interested in getting a copy, please email SCARCE at scarce@neuf.fr

Well, someone's gonna be in for a rough landing since he's not paying attention. ;o XD And isn't Spiderman reading his own comic a sort of propoganda? D: XD JK JK, it's a cool idea. I think I'd be psyched if I was a superhero reading a comic about made about myself. XD

He's reading an old issue of the magazine I did this cover for, SCARCE. The Spider-Man on the back cover was the add for the actual SM comics in France :)

Super taf en tout cas... et longue vie à Scarce!

Glad you like it better, Marco.
Timestorm was the first Spidey I had done so far. It takes time to find your way into these characters.

Superbe couverture ! J'ai pas lu Scarce depuis le numéro spécial Eisner, voilà un beau (très beau même) prétexte pour me remettre à Scarce.

Je me suis remis à le lire avec l'arrivée de la nouvelle équipe éditoriale il y a deux ou trois numéros.
J'aime le ton qui renoue avec le bon vieux temps.

Je trouve vraiment bien qu'ils sachent se démarquer des autres médias (surtout internet) en proposant des sujets plus dans l'ombre et moins moderne...moins dans l'info et plus dans la redécouverte des trésors oubliés :)

It feels odd to be interviewed by SCARCE...it's like I was reading the mag as a fan just a couple years ago. But it feels good too.
