In the midst of winter, a snowstorm blows into the small, quiet village of Iping—and along with the storm arrives a mysterious stranger. The village inhabitants are quickly disturbed by the sudden appearance of this peculiar scientist who keeps his face hidden and prefers solitude. When they discover that underneath his innumerable bandages is an invisible man, they rise up in fear and drive him out. But the invisible man will return to take his revenge and their peaceful village will soon find itself haunted by an unseen and hateful spirit. Superbly drawn, originally published in France in two parts.

An intense and sometimes violent story. Our Invisible Man starts out as a sadly uncaring student, who ends up stealing from his father to fund his studies. It turns out the money was not his father's at all, and the poor man commits suicide as a result. But our man shows his true colors early on, and as the power of being invisible comes to him, he gets even more corrupted, taking human life as easily as snuffing out an insect.

He can appear as if from nowhere, let his anger vent and attack men with scarcely a recourse since he cannot be seen. But  invisibility doesn't carry to either his clothes or even undigested food, so he has an Achilles heel, so to speak, that keeps getting him into trouble.The Invisible Man is a cynical, sad, and inventive science fiction classic and here seems like a fresh, new story in the hands of two fine creators. At times, the work reminds us of Berni Wrightson's.

Dobbs was a film history teacher before he embarked on his career as a comic book writer. Since writing his first graphic novel, Welcome to Paradise, Dobbs has written a number of comics inspired by late-nineteenth-century literature and history, such as Scotland Yard, Mr. Hyde against Frankenstein, Alamo, and Allan Quatermain and King Solomon's Mines, and, more recently, adaptations of works by Stefan Wul and H. G. Wells.

Christophe “Bis” Regnault was destined to draw from the first time he held a pencil. In addition to his graphic novel work, Bis has illustrated for French cartoons, video game publications, and roleplaying games.
