Express is a port-folio of 8 images by Claude Renard and François Schuiten, edited by Magic Strip in 1981. This edition is numbered and signed (999 copies).

The set of 8 images form a narrative suite. So it's almost a real comic. It happens in a train, and it is actually very close to the atmosphere of the album The Rail, created by Schuiten and Renard.

The set was reissued by Magic Strip in 1983 as a set of cards. You can see them below. In 1985 Magic Strip reissued them as a set of posters.

These images were also included in “ Quai des Bulles ”, a collective album devoted to trains in comics.
