Originally, 'La Princesse du sang' was the final novel by the master of
dark literature, Jean-Patrick Manchette. But of this full-bodied story,
mixing adventure with murder mystery, action and geopolitics, the reader
only got to see an incomplete version, that which Manchette was able to
write before being taken by cancer in 1995. It is on the basis of his
father's notes that the writer and filmmaker Doug Headline reconstructed
the drama of the extraordinary adventures of Ivory Pearl. With artwork
by Max Cabanes, 'La Princesse du sang' finally shines out with all the
glory of the graphic novel.
