Comics and animation

The story about Jeanne d’Arc is published several times in the drawn line and comics. Both in booklet form, and film animation. Most releases are from before the digital age. The story has has been interpreted in many varied ways. Some have held strong religious telling form. Others have made the history in pornography way. Many of them are incredibly beautiful created by both known and unknown artists throughout the ages. Some are kept in simple black white line, other print in color. In most cases, many of them today are rare, and collectibles. One of the finest illustrated work is without doubt La Vie de Jeanne d’Arc by Louis-Maurice Boutet de Monvel.
