Known for its abundant literary production endowed with solid and well-established publishing houses, bestowed with a long tradition of caricatures and editorial cartoons, the island of Mauritius has, nevertheless, done little to recognize bandes dessines or BDs. This situation is not, however, the result of an absence of graphic or visual talent, for the country is teeming with painters and other artists. Rather, the main reason stems from the status of the BD in the country, undervalued by many and seen as destined for a young audience that is typically ignored by publishing houses.
