Perfection - Coda

Here's what Frédéric Pajak says at the end of his Intro to the Oeuvres 1 book (my translation):
It's true that Buzzelli wasn't recognized enough as an artist and it's true that he is a bit forgotten. With the exception of some small printrun examples, over the last thirty years his work hasn't been republished. How could we have endured all this time in the ignorance of this lucid, funnily exasperated, visionary spirit?
Well, the explanation is quite simple: comics readers have been idiots. Once I hoped they stopped being so, but all hope is gone now.
