Thorgal en Aaricia proberen met de drakar van Sveyn te ontsnappen aan
de wraak van de wrede koning Harald. Maar ze lijden schipbreuk en
Thorgal en zijn gezellen stranden op een vreemd eiland. Op hun
zoektocht naar drinkbaar water verkennen ze de ruïnes van een stad.
Onder de grond lopen ze, zonder het te beseffen, een nog groter
gevaar tegemoet dan datgene waar ze voor vluchtten.
Govert Suurbier is een man met naam. Deze goede missionaris worstelt
om door het bos de bomen te blijven zien. Het Vaticaan vertrouwt de
delicaatste en ondankbaarste taken aan hem toe. De jonge pater
Reinier Kneppelhout staat hem bij in zijn beproevingen. Toegegeven,
de onstuimige novice heeft het niet makkelijk zich aan te passen aan
de wereld rondom hem en onderneemt goedbedoelde pogingen om al wat
beweegt te bekeren. Voor hij Bollie & Billie overnam, maakte Laurent
Verron met verve de tekeningen voor de getalenteerde Yann. Het
resultaat is ongemeen erudiet en iconoclastisch.
Chicago, the Seventies. Life is tough when you're an orphan in the streets - and even more so if you're black. Little Jones, 10, doesn't even know her real name. All she has is a brother who flirts with the Black Panthers, a streak of cunning and determination a mile wide, and a dream: that of some day enlisting into the Army. A chance encounter with war hero Major Whittaker will change her life forever...
Aaricia, convinced by Lundgren that her daughter is dead, is preparing to leave the village for good. Wolfcub is very much alive, however, and intends to remain so, despite the danger she faces: Raissa, the wolf pack leader she thought she'd killed, is hunting her relentlessly, now in human form! To escape, the young girl will have to use every trick she knows, and accept help from a handsome and mysterious stranger...
Wolfcub is back home, but she's lost nothing of her wild habits and stubbornness, and conflicts with the other villagers are increasingly common. She also refuses to believe that Thorgal is dead, while Aaricia appears to have accepted his passing and is now sharing Lundgren's bed. Disgusted by her mother's behavior, Wolfcub decides to run away, but she is quickly followed by Lundgren's men... as well as a mysterious and frightening woman...
Both halves of Wolfcub-her wild side, extracted by Assalepson, and her civilized side-are now in the Realm of Chaos, a land ruled by the monstrous wolf Fenrir, and they will have to cooperate in order to retrieve the severed hand of Tyr, return to their world, and be reunited into a single, whole person. Meanwhile, Aaricia, shattered by Thorgal's supposed death, is beginning to give in to the very man who concocted this malicious lie...
It is the early 1920s. The Volstead Act has recently prohibited the sale and consumption of alcohol, which means that an active black market has sprung up-a market controlled by legendary gangsters such as Al Capone. Supplies must be secretly shipped from France to its outpost in Saint-Pierre, Newfoundland. This dangerous and illegal trade involves aviators flying primitive sea planes-aviators such as Bessie the "Black Angel," whose mixed heritage also makes her the target of the flourishing Ku Klux Klan. Based on the historical figure of Bessie Coleman, she flies in the face of injustice, prejudice, and discrimination.
Stuck in the world of the mysterious Assalepson, Wolfcub has agreed to let the sorcerer extract her wild side. What she didn't know was that he would use that wild side-a physical double of the little girl, filled with all her strength and aggressiveness-to attempt to retrieve a powerful relic from the realm of Fenrir the giant wolf! Meanwhile, back at the village, Aaricia must continue to deal with the villagers' hostility... as well as the handsome Lundgren's insistent attempts to seduce her.
While Thorgal is away looking for his son Aniel, his family faces the hostility of certain inhabitants of their Viking village. Thorgal's daughter, the fiercely independent little Wolfcub, finds herself particularly targeted, as her strange talents make people ill at ease. Her ability to speak with animals will come in handy, though, when she finds herself caught in a trap with a genuine wolf. So begins an adventure that will take her far, far from home...
After years of torment, the Queen of the Frozen Seas has finally escaped the clutches of Gandalf-the-Mad... and it appears that she knows something of Thorgal's origins. In order to find him, though, she'll have to survive in an unfamiliar world that seems bent on revenge. Could Slivia be the last of her kind? Plus, Thorgal is desperately searching for the love of his life, lost at sea in a storm. He prays to all the gods and goddesses that, against all hope, Aaricia is somehow alive...
Young Thorgal is no closer to finding peace and calm, and neither are those close to him. Aaricia's companions are about to be tortured by her own brother, and she finds no help in Thorgal, who is off on a desperate search for Hierulf. The wise man narrowly escaped death on the Sacrificial Rock, but hasn't been seen since... Is he even still alive? Meanwhile, Gandalf-the-Mad is keeping a beautiful woman prisoner in a windbeaten tower. But this fiery-haired queen may have more to her than meets the eye...
Atom Vercorian is trying to make it as a private detective in post-war Paris, and he just needs that one big case to make a name for himself. His father, a police detective, isn't making any headway in the case of a jewelry theft in the south of France. Atom, however, gets a lead that takes him and his partners, Mimi and Jojo, south to Marseille, where they meet ex-resistance fighters, gangsters, and henchmen. With audacity and enthusiasm, Atom and his cohorts dance their way through the worlds of organized crime, pro wrestling, and the ultra-rich in the pursuit of Miss France 1930's stolen jewels. This could be Atom's big break-if he survives the experience!
In the next chapter of Thorgal's early years, Aaricia has been captured. It's up to the young hero to save his beloved from the savage berserkers-unless one of his rivals gets there first. There's Sigurd, the handsome drakkar captain speeding across the waves in pursuit of the berserkers, and Nigürd, the jarl's squirrel-toothed son, who might have more up his sleeve than meets the eye... They'll have to work together to survive the stormy sea and have any hope of rescuing Aaricia before the berserkers' chief, Moldi-the-Furious, decides her fate.
The Spanish Civil War attracted involvement from a wide variety of governments, individuals and political factions, with Italians, Germans, and North Africans helping Franco and his supporters, and the Soviet Union, Mexico, and international brigades aiding the Republicans. Dusting off a little-known and often forgotten chapter of history, the authors take us back to this remarkable and terrible period of war as only they can, with a tale full of scheming intrigues. The world they uncover is one of no-holds-barred plotting to obtain victory at whatever the cost. And in the midst of the backstabbings and despair, one young Russian pilot falls in love with a feisty Spanish freedomfighter. In the hope it will outlast the bitter conflict engulfing them all.
Former shipping company clerk turned adventurer Theodore Poussin arrives on the oyster farming island of Long Andju in Malaysia looking for a mysterious woman who has gone missing. She disappeared during a bloody coup d'etat in which her father lost control of the land. A contaminated oyster reef has rendered the last pearl harvest worthless, and tensions are rising on the small island, as pirates, sailors, assassins, rajahs, foreign businessmen, diplomats, and amorous youths all scheme to get what they want, be it power, gold, pearls, or the affection of their heart's desire. The mysterious Mr. November is once again along for the ride, in a tale dripping with the mood and humidity of its tropical colonial setting.
In the next chapter of the saga of the skald's early years, Thorgal is in love! He and Aaricia are talking of marriage, of running away, of a future together. But Aaricia's father, Gandalf-the-Mad, has other plans. A dozen handsome, strong, and mostly intelligent suitors have shown up to the summer festival of Sigrblót to fight for her hand in marriage. But there is another mysterious guest on hand for the festival: Runa, a shieldmaiden, who comes bearing a kingly gift for the village lord. But what is the true reason behind her visit?
Thorgal, a young skald living a tenuous existence within a Viking tribe, has given his word to save the Minkelsnn sisters, who have been cursed to live as whales. The village is starving, though, and Thorgal has very little time to save the sisters' souls before they kill the whales for their meat. He sets off on an adventure to beg the gods for their help. But Freyja, Odin, Ænir, and the rest of the Norse gods are not so easily bargained with. Thorgal will have to use all of his cunning, singing, and luck to save the Norn sisters...
It's been a long, cold winter, and the Vikings are suffering major food shortages. Many of the men have left on a long voyage. In their absence, Bjrn, son of the village chief, Gandalf-the-mad, has been left in charge. Which is not good news for Thorgal, a young skald of mysterious origins, marginalized by the Viking tribe. Lucky for him, he has the beautiful Aaricia to look out for him. When Thorgal's singing attracts three whales into the bay, the villagers hope they might finally be able to feed themselves. But something tells Thorgal that these are no ordinary whales...
