Olivier Schrauwen has a reputation in the Belgian scene as a successful animator turned comic book auteur. He’s been printed in part in the US before, and his Windsor McCay-influenced work was highlighted by Dave Eggers last year, but in August, Fantagraphics are publishing his first American graphic novel. The Man Who Grew His Beard collects seven stories, often focussing on the difference between the inner mind and the outer reality.
