The Adventures of Jodelle (original title Les Aventures de Jodelle) is a 1966 French erotic comic drawn by Guy Peellaert and scripted by Pierre Bartier. It was first published in the hardcore satiric French comix journal Hara-Kiri. Drawings and screenplay were deeply influenced by Pop Art.[1][2] Many of the characters looks were taken from public pop figures of the past and present; Jodelle herself looks like French singer Sylvie Vartan, stereotyped as the girl next door fiancée,[3] while other characters are look-alikes of Emperor Augustus, The Beatles, Pope Paul VI,[3] James Bond, Marquis de Sade,[2] Wright's architecture of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum,[4] and Jesus Christ.[2] In a Pop version of Imperial Rome, neon ads promote "stripteases and Christian slaughters."[1]

This work is associated with the Pichard's Paulette (1971), and Scarlet Dream (1981). Notable works in this trend outside of France have been Phoebe Zeit-Geist (1965) and Vampirella (1969) in USA, Modesty Blaise (1963) in the UK, Valentina (1965) and Angiolini's Isabella (1966) in Italy.[6] Jodelle is considered a more sophisticated and intellectual product than his more famous precursor Barbarella.[3]
