Le Diable et son Train (1951), by Jeanne Effel (12 February 1908, Paris – 10 October 1982), published by René Julliard, is a great picture story that’s very much of its time. The title is based on an aged French expression. The train is a series of objects or people. The Devil (“But you can call me Lulu”) is looking for romance – or just to cop off with a “hottie”. The puns come thick and fast.
