"Setting comics creators loose in the Louvre, and then letting a story come to them that is inspired by the works they come across. One of the premiere cultural institutions in the WORLD decided that it would be a great idea to create a "lasting bridge" between their artworks and the world of comics-and their readers. That's just huge."

Karen Green, Comixology. See the complete overview of this series: "4 Nights in the museum."

ON THE ODD HOURS
Eric Liberge
The highly successful series of graphic novels co-published with the Louvre museum in Paris ("Glacial Period", "Museum Vaults") continues with its next outstanding graphic novel. This time, the author invites us on a guided tour of the museum... by night... when the works of art come alive. Our guide: a deaf night watchman who somehow manages to communicate with the souls of those ethereal and timeless works of art. A visual tour de force with a strong edge of the frighteningly fantastic.
"A great story of a hearing-impaired young man trying to find his way." -Miami Herald
"Liberge's illustrations are very strong. Detailed and moody, each page swirls with dark colors, and Liberge's strong character work enables readers to immediately empathize with Bastien and those around him."
-Newsarama
"One of the strangest yet most haunting novels I have been privileged to read." -Grasping for the Wind
"Virtuosically rendered by Liberge, who merges elegant clear-line figuration, expressionistic pastel coloration, and in the odd-hours sequences, superimposition effects, Bastien's story powerfully expresses the irrepressible life of great art." -Booklist
"A young man with a Mohawk stands at the top of the Louvre's grand staircase and strikes a gong, awakening the rebellious spirit in great works of art. Francois-Joseph Bosio's sculpture of a ten-year-old Henri IV runs through a gallery. The Winged Victory of Samothrace explodes into flight.
A heavy-metal blur of collaged drawings, engravings, and digital images, Eric Liberge's graphic novel On the Odd Hours presents the Louvre in an imaginative way."
-Sasha Watson, Art News
