Original title: Longue vie
Watch out! This is graphic novel completely out of the ordinary! An opulent, atypical, textless book where the drawings develop a fantastic narrative as rich as a long text.
Once upon a time there was a peaceful world, where men lived in harmony with nature and animals. One fine day, an armada of half-man half-beasts arrived, plundering everything in its path. A shepherd, whose family has been massacred, demands vengeance. It is for him the beginning of a long journey where monstrous enemies stand before him, waiting. Singular, precise and chaotic, each page of this book is a unique geography where the reader’s gaze endlessly travels.
