Dungeon Early Years, vol. 3

DUNGEON EARLY YEARS, VOL. 3: Without a Sound
Lewis Trondheim; Joann Sfar; Stephane Oiry; Christophe Gaultier
The legend of the founding of Dungeon continues with two all-new chapters! Old Arakou, Hyacinthe's father, feels rusty and mopes at the idea of dying in his bed. He never ceases to remember the old heroic days and his pals he wants to connect back with. So, he mounts his faithful steed, much to the chagrin of Alexandra who, worried for him, accompanies him on this crazy ride. Meanwhile, in the ruins of Antipolis, Comor and a handful of lords are preparing to take back power...
The second story presents the arrival of young Marvin to the Dungeon, ready to become its most faithful protector. The city of Antipolis destroyed, his father dead, Hyacinthe de Cavallère finds himself alone to fight against the threats of the attackers eager to appropriate the Dungeon. The duchies of Clérembard and Vaucanson are determined to enlarge their territories... Prospects for the Dungeon look dire but as the two forces attack, they are not expecting the fierce opposition awaiting them in so many forms, including that of the most powerful of the warriors in the making: Marvin the Saurian.

ALGORITHMIC REALITY

ALGORITHMIC REALITY
Damian Bradfield, David Sánchez
Your phone reminds you all day long that you were interested in buying those shoes. Your device knows the places where you go, the books you like and your friends' faces. The world's most valuable resource is no longer oil, but data. The more they know about you, the better you can be targeted, and then, monetized. The British businessman Damian Bradfield, co-founder of WeTransfer, and the Spanish comics author David Sánchez build an ironic dystopic world, disturbingly similar to ours, to explore the addictive effects of social media, the stealthy invasion of privacy and the dangers of data misuse. With a wry acidic sense of humor, they blur the boundaries between the online and offline worlds and spin disturbingly recognizable tales about our overconnected society.

DARKLY SHE GOES

DARKLY SHE GOES
Hubert, Vincent Mallié
Once upon a time there was a fallen knight, who believed that saving a princess would allow him to atone for his crimes. Once upon a time there was a dark princess, who believed that it was up to her to atone for the crimes of her parents...
Banished for a fault that forever taints his reputation, Arzhur wanders from tavern to field of battle in search of the next contract which will fill his purse. One night, three mysterious old women offer him to regain honor and fortune if he frees the daughter of a neighboring king, held captive in the ruins of an abandoned castle. But Islen is not the damsel in distress that he expected to save...
Magnified by the virtuoso art of Vincent Mallié, Hubert questions the weight of family heritage and delivers, under the finery of a tale, an intimate reflection on our inner monsters.
Darkly She Goes is an ode to redemption where determinism and free will clash, carried by two masters of the fantasy genre.

BEAUTY

BEAUTY
Hubert, Kerascoet
Now in paperback!
When the repulsively ugly Coddie unintentionally saves a fairy from a spell, she does not understand the poisonous nature of the wish granted her by the fairy. The village folk no longer see her as repulsive and stinking of fish—they now perceive her as magnetically beautiful—which does not help her in her village. A young local lord saves her, but it soon becomes apparent that Coddie's destiny may be far greater than anyone ever imagined. Caustic and flamboyant, this fairy tale offers grownups an engrossing take on the nature and corrupting power of beauty, in our age of obsession with it.

MINGUS

MINGUS
Squaz, Flavio Massarutto
"I play what I am. I play Mingus." This comics biography tells the troubled life, the battles against racism, the brilliant music of a master who has left an indelible mark on the jazz scene and beyond. From his beginnings in Los Angeles in the 1940s to his heartbreaking end in Mexico, the story of a man of indomitable and rebellious talent who crossed styles while always remaining himself, in perpetual struggle against a society that wanted him marginalized and subordinated.
Bass player and pianist, composer and band leader, Charles Mingus is universally recognized as one of the greatest musicians in the history of jazz. An overflowing talent, who experienced the last fires of the swing age, the Be Bop revolution, the experimental seasons of Third Stream and Jazz Poetry up to Free Jazz. But he was also a tormented and angry soul, a man who, due to his mestizo origins, always had to deal with the hostility of American society. Journalist Flavio Massarutto and artist Squaz (Pasquale Todisco) retrace the stages of Mingus's journey, giving life to a non-canonical biography, which proceeds in paginated episodes like a succession of passages that form a musical suite: fragments of existence told by fishing from interviews, writings, testimonies and historical facts. The portrait of a musician who is the mirror of an era comes out, of a brilliant composer who was also one of the most clearly committed artists in denouncing racism, with real manifesto pieces such as the famous Fable of Faubus denouncing the segregationist governor of Arkansas. In the words of Massarutto and in the evocative art of Squaz, which also reinterpret some of the famous covers of Mingus records, we relive the burning parable of a restless man, always in search of perfection, in constant struggle with himself and with the world: a master capable of leaving an indelible mark on the musical and cultural panorama of the twentieth century.
