BOB’s creator Lance was so excited about the upcoming launch, he couldn’t wait until the book was out to start cosplaying as one of its characters. Come on, what else would you do if you created your own comic book character?!
Sure, it may have creeped out his neighbors, but his enthusiasm has given us some great visual aids with which to introduce you to Legros de Rumigny (pronounced Luh-gro, ‘cuz French). He’s a major player in BOB: NON-UNION PSYCHIC #1 – though we suppose you might’ve guessed that, since his name is in the title of the of the book.
So who is Monsieur de Rumigny? A legit historical figure, actually – a former chef who turned into the hairdresser extraordinaire of the 18th-century French court, when fashion was at its peak! Ol’ Legros primped and preened the coiffures of the likes of Madame de Pompadour, and he’s the author of the famed L’ART DE LA COËFFURES DES DAMES FRANÇOISES, one of the earliest guides dedicated solely to his craft.
He opened and operated the prestigious ACADÉMIE POUR LA COËFFURES DES DAMES, where he taught illustrious hair constructs and helped establish hairdressing as a profession.
