Maybe Later sees Eisner-nominated Dupuy and Berberian working separately for the first time, each cartoonist taking turns to tell the behind-the-scenes “making of” their bestselling Mr. Jean series. In fluid black-and- white, with hilariously paranoid digressions and surreal dream sequences, Maybe Later is a record of their unique artistic partnership, midlife and its demons, the stress of deadlines, and the friends and colleagues who help and goad along the way.
Above all, it's about the creative process, with aliens, pawns, and deflated superheroes battling procrastination and self-doubt in defence of the simple pleasure of telling stories through pictures.
