Jeanne & Modigliani: Paris in the Dark - Graphic Novel Drama

CA$ 1,737

"In all respects, Jeanne & Modigliani is a fantastic accomplishment. Just be prepared that, if you let it, it has the power to strike right to the core of you." - 10/10 Starburst Magazine

"JEANNE & MODIGLIANI shows the frightening codependency between two wonderful artists. With incredibly enticing artwork, the comic captures the flaws of this pair perfectly and drags us into the dark journey of their personal lives." - 97% ComicsVerse

Jeanne & Modigliani is a 144 page graphic novel written by Nadine Van Der Straeten. This is the second Kickstarter Campaign run by Black Panel Press, following up on the success of Ancient Astronauts in October. Achieving little recognition in his own lifetime, Amedeo Modigliani went on to become a highly influential expressionist artist after his untimely death in 1920. Jeanne Hebuterne was his last companion, his ever-faithful supporter. 

Although a talented artist in her own right, Jeanne is pulled into the abyss of Modigliani's destructive ego, to tragic ends. ...  

Jeanne Hebuterne... she who quietly slipped through her 19 years in the background of the scene, as if to apologize for being there. This is her story...  

This book contains some mature subject matter, and is recommended for adults aged 18+

Nadine Van der Straeten
Nadine Van der Straeten

 Nadine Van der Straeten has been drawing for twenty years. Although her heart swings between illustration and comics, she loves to tell stories with the tip of her pencil. Since her studies in Strasbourg under the leadership of Claude Lapointe, she has worked closely with many magazines and publishers for youth. Nadine Van der Straeten currently lives in the Paris region.  

Jeanne & Modigliani is Nadine's first adult graphic novel, entirely written and illustrated by her.

 Your pledge will help us to print 500 copies of Jeanne & Modigliani. Our plan is to start with a minimum run of 500 copies. Depending on the success of the Kickstarter campaign, we hope to increase that number quite a lot. The majority of your pledge will be used to print a high quality hardcover of the book. The rest will be used to ship and market the book on other channels.
