The comic “Conventional wisdom” 


This author’s inaugural work is a must-have. It combines existential questions and faith in an innovative way.

With over 80,000 copies sold in seven languages, including Mandarin, it has become a bestseller. This book, self-published in Switzerland, also won a special mention at the Angoulême International Francophone Christian Comics Prize.

Through its dark humor and specific graphic design, the book deconstructs prejudices about God, death, religion and humanity.

Aimed primarily at teenagers and young adults, it offers a refreshing, moving, funny and sincere experience. The authenticity it conveys will challenge the readers’ convictions, believer or not !

The book was recently translated and distributed in Myanmar, a country in the throes of civil war. Thousands of conversions have followed !

Pre-production and pilot episode


Two pilot episodes are currently in production. It implies answering crucial questions for the rest of the creation:

● Technique used

● Designs

● Script

● Animatics

● Etc.


Other professionals assist the team in their work, on a regular or ad hoc basis, as required.

In the same time, we are actively looking for investors so that we can hire an entire team of animators, and set up an animation studio.
