♦ Description : “Help, they’re back !!! They have been driving the roads for a while: neighborhood champions as boastful as they are intrepid, bad faith and sarcasm raised to the rank of art, with a sense of sometimes random trajectories and a loyalty card for the hosto of the area … did you recognize them? Yes:get out the straw boots, after 4 years of absence, the crazies of the Joe Bar Team are back! Jéjé, Paulo, Pierrot without forgetting the old ones come back spin the handle of gas to offer us a new slew of hilarious gags of which they have the secret, blooming good the engine oil and the burnt rubber. Under the sometimes dismayed look of Joe …

At the controls of this eighth opus, we find a regular of the circuit, since it is Fane who makes his comeback by signing his fifth volume on the counter! He probably realizes his most successful album, as funny as graphically jubilant, called to become at least as cult as the precedents for all fans of the series and those who, if possible, would not know it yet. Get ready: the full ones are done, the levels are up to the brink, humor, bad faith and big attack at the rendezvous, so … GAAAZZ !!!”

Authors biography
“Bar2 (aka Christian Debarre), the creator of the Joe Bar Team, was born in 1960 in the suburbs of Paris. As a teenager, he shares between two passions: drawing and motorcycle. In 1977, he made his debut in the magazine “Plein Pot”, a motorcycle monthly illustrated comic book, before turning to the advertising illustration and drawing press, profession he will practice for several years.

Biography

“Bar2”

His taste for driving will see him take part in many motorcycle competitions and will later push him into the lap of “Moto Journal”, where he will integrate the staff of test drivers. The first boards of the Joe Bar Team will be published shortly thereafter in the same magazine and will be put together later in an album published by Vents d’Ouest. Confident in ‘Fane, a longtime friend and biker too, the rest of his series, Bar2 will enter as a journalist at “Moto Revue” where he will hold the position of deputy editor for three years. Then he will found, with Michel Bidault, the “Joe Bar Mag” magazine, crazy magazine dedicated to the bike, and will sign with that same Mr. Bidault Encyclopedia Imbecile Moto, published at Vents d’Ouest. Reinstalling for a time at the controls of the Bar Bar Team, Bar2 signed the fifth volume in 2003, before ‘Fane, then Pat Perna and Henry Jenfèvre do not take over the reins of this comic strip has become cult.”


Biography

“Fane”

“Fane, aka Stéphane Déteindre, is a comic book author. After four years of studying graphic arts at the Estienne school, he embarked on comics with Skud, a sci-fi album, and two art books on the biker spirit. His vocation as an early draftsman is reinforced: “I discover that BD authors are not aliens and I say to myself: why not me?”. He takes over the Joe Bar Team at the age of twenty-five: he writes the dialogues and creates the drawings thanks to his personal experience of motorcycles. By inventing new characters while continuing to make those of Bar2 live, this complete author imposes his style and his humor.”
