DUNGEON Zenith, Vol. 5

Fog & Tears

Lewis Trondheim, Joann Sfar, Boulet

The valiant duck Herbert and Isis, his beautiful and belligerent Kochaque companion's son is born. As much as the young parents are delighted with this new arrival, tensions are not long in rising. Isis wants to submit her baby to the traditional Kochaque rite of passage. Herbert, judging it far too dangerous, tries to dissuade her. Unable to convince her, he finally decides to kidnap the infant.

In the second story, the fight to recover the Dungeon from the hands of the big bad Delacourt still keeps our heroes busy... While Horus has been trying for days to hypnotize the spirits of Terra Amata freed from the Vault of Souls by Delacourt, the Guardian calls on Marvin to come to the thaumaturge's aid. But to get there, he will have to, willy-nilly, make an alliance with a former classmate of his new wife.

Red Harvest

The Terror Famine In Soviet Ukraine

Michael Cherkas

Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin waged a brutal war against the Soviet peasantry leading to the Holodomor, the terror-famine that killed at least 4 million Ukrainians during the fall and winter of 1932-33.

Red Harvest is based on the tragic events that took place in Soviet Ukraine and other parts of the Soviet Union from 1929 to 1933. Stalin and the ruling Communist Party began their program of forced large-scale collectivization of individual farms and farmers, including the seizure of livestock, farm implements, crops, seed stock, and other property.

Red Harvest is the fictional story, based on true stories as related to the Ukranian-Canadian author, of Mykola Kovalenko, a Ukrainian immigrant to Canada, who was the only member of his family to have survived the famine. Through his memories, we witness the horrors of what happened to his family and fellow villagers in the "breadbasket of Europe" as they struggled—not only to make sense of the war that was being waged against them—but, ultimately, to survive.

And in the last culminating episode, The Zombillenium amusement park, which still keeps dozens of visitors prisoner, is coveted by many demons, each eager to become a majority shareholder.

A Solitary Dance

Salva Rubio (writer), Efa (artist)

One of the founders of the Impressionist movement while also
one of its most ruthless critics, too bohemian for the bourgeois and too
bourgeois for the artists, Edgar Degas was a man of paradoxes. A loner, he only loved one woman without ever courting her, the American painter Mary Cassatt whom we follow closely as well. And it is in the company of the latter that at the twilight of his life, Efa and Rubio open the pages of Degas's notebooks to try to unravel the mystery of this genius steeped in contradictions.

Harlem, 1931. In the heart of the Great Depression, invention is the mother of necessity to make ends meet.

Stéphanie St. Clair, known as ‘Queenie’, had already
understood this when she landed in New York almost twenty years before. Inventiveness when you are a woman and you are black is much more than a necessity. It's a question of survival.

In a few years, this young immigrant West Indian servant freed herself from the weight of ancestral servitude. Even better, she created her own American dream: the underground Harlem numbers game.

Hers is an ascent that makes people cringe, both with the local authorities and the white mafia. Dutch Schultz, aka. the Dutchman, an unscrupulous mafioso, intends to take control of the kingdom of the "Frenchy." But that's without taking into account the determination and impetuosity of Queenie, whose heavy past continues to guide her steps...

After the critically acclaimed Giant and Bootblack, Mikaël takes us to the Harlem of the prohibition for the final chapter of his New York triptych in sumptuous chiaroscuro, to meet a woman as strong as she is
