Aslan shows his soft side.
Are these pulp? Sort of. They’re Aslan, and that’s close enough. We’re referring, of course, to French master Alain Gourdon, aka Aslan, and we’ve featured rare pieces of his that you can’t see anywhere else (so far) here and here. What you’re looking at above are covers for the magazine Line, billed as “le journal des chics filles.” These are Aslan in cutesy mode, which he always did quite well, and which presents a nice counterpoint to him in raunchy mode, at which he also excelled. We’ll do more on him in the latter incarnation in a bit. Late 1960s on all these.
