In the memorable Larousse edition L'Histoire de France en bandes dessinées, first published between 1976-1978 and republished in 2008, the life and times of Marot are of course prominently represented. His employer was the King of France en Marot not only witnessed the events but was (took) part of (in) it.

 

Couverture de Histoire de France en bandes dessin�es -10- Louis XI, Fran�ois 1erIn vol. 10 the story of the Affaire des placards is told. Marot is mentioned and drawn. The images are reproduced below.

Couverture de Histoire de France en bandes dessin�es -11- Les d�couvertes, la R�formeIn vol. 11 a more general picture is drawn of the early French Reformation (l'Evangelisme) including Lefèvre d'Etaple's participation in the Reform of Bisshop Briçonnet in the diocese of Meaux. The two images are also reproduced below. Interesting detail: the picture of Meaux Cathedral with the famous Medieval staircase on the third picture (Worth a visit!), also because François Vatable worked there (he was part of the groupe of Meaux).
