La Marche Brume - Tome 1 - Le Souffle des choses – Stéphane Fert
Le Souffle des choses is the highly promising first volume in Stéphane Fert's new fantasy series. It tells the breathless story of Tempérance, an ogress raised by a coven of witches, who tries to escape from the dangerous mist that surrounds them... The post-apocalyptic world is rich and the characters engaging.
This unique sorority will make you laugh and bring tears to your eyes. As for the style, it's dark but pleasant, with orange and violet hues that are truly bewitching. This feminist ecological fable is one to enjoy whole heartedly!
Astra Nova – Lisa Blumen
Through evocative drawings and a minimalist style, Lisa Blumen delivers a lyrical ode to failure. Nova has decided to set off alone on a space mission to a distant planet. The journey could take up to 50 years. Nova wants to escape her loneliness and finally have a reason for her solitude. Before the big departure, she is forced to attend a farewell party with old acquaintances. These three friends from the past all lead lonely lives, for different reasons, and will explore this malaise during this bittersweet reunion.
This is an inner journey, not a journey through space, and there is much more to this story than science fiction.
Femme Vie Liberté – Sous la direction de Marjane Satrapi
On 16 September 2022, the young Mahsa Amini was killed by the vice police in Iran. This tragedy galvanised the Iranian feminist movement and created a major wave of protest. The book is divided into three parts: the event, a historical review and an illustration of the Iranian resistance.
Marjane Satrapi, accompanied by specialists and numerous illustrators, delivers a modern, powerful, instructive and poignant documentary comic book. A moving and necessary work and an essential read.
