Un monde à part
Mowgli and Shere Khan? No, of course not. A look. The look of beings that simply cannot be caged. Or at least their souls can't. This is how an improvised zoo in Normandy can be stopped from becoming a prison. It is a universe in which the princess is a childlike woman: Manon, the adopted daughter of Célestin, a doctor who heals more than just the body. Another subject of this kingdom whose colours grow all the brighter as you approach its heart: Buggy, the artist who brings statues to life. Then there's Anna, one of those things that's just left over after a dramatic event. A world apart, an island in the middle of a sea of life gone mad. The year is 1914. It was such a beautiful morning. Then suddenly the war came and showed all of its ugliness.
Ce tome 3 marque les retrouvailles avec la puissance graphique et le velouté chromatique de Frank Pé, digne et unique héritier du grand animalier René Hausman, mais aussi avec la profondeur émotionnelle et les dialogues ciselés du scénario de Philippe Bonifay. Un retour attendu et magistral.
