Christian Montenegro adapts into a comic book a fragment of the 16th century novels «Les Cinq livres des faits et dits de Gargantua et Pantagruel» written originally in French by François Rabelais ("Alcofribas Nasier"). The graphic piece is an adaptation of a fragment of the second book into comic book using the same language of the original eccentric and satirical text. The five novels are considered one of the earliest examples of Nonsense in French literature. The chapter chosen and adapted deals with a controversy by signs carried out between English scholar Thaumaste and Panurge (Pantagruel best friend), where the gestures made by the protagonists enhance the total magnitude of the crazy and heated philosophical dissertation. "Debate por señas" (Sign Debate) is a comic strip, is an introduction to the world of the absurd, and it's also a poster. LIMITED EDITION OF 1000.
