Portes du Possible (Les)

Les Portes du Possible is a series that started end of January 2005 when Schuiten and Peeters published weekly a full page in a few Belgium newspapers. The pages had different themes about what our world could look like in the future. No utopia, but possible scenarios.

Les portes du possible

With this project Schuiten and Peeters also wanted to bring drawings back to the newspaper. A new series for not only those who like comics but for a broad audience.

The series were published in the De Morgen, Le Soir and the Courrier International. Later on also in the Italian newspaper Il Sole 24 ore.


With the start of the series François and Benoît gave some interviews telling about why and what of this project.
