Ranx (or RanXerox), the comic book character that was the inspiration for Frank Zappa's "The Man From Utopia" album cover, turns 40 in 2018.
The latest issue of dBD, the French comic book magazine, has Ranx on the cover and an 8-page interview with Tanino Liberatore (the artist) inside the mag.
The article starts quoting Frank Zappa and the illustrations include both the front and the back cover of "The Man From Utopia".
There's a nice chapter on how he met FZ.
Anyone visiting Paris should know that Tanino Liberatore has an expo at Galérie Glenat until Dec 30, 2017.
