From the creator of The Reprieve & Flight of the Raven. Recommended. By Jean-Pierre Gibrat. A beautifully drawn and deeply emotional graphic novel, following the singular story of a young man caught up in World War I. In a small town at the foot of the Pyrenees on the French Mediterranean, lifelong friends are called to arms, except for Mattéo, who, as the son of Spanish refugees, is exempt from service. Yet when his fellow villagers--including Juliet, the woman he loves--express disdain for his pacifism, he finally capitulates and joins up...to embark on an epic adventure that will have a resounding impact on all their lives.

Gibrat is the winner of the Best Artist Award, Angouleme. His Flight of the Raven was nominated for two 2018 Eisner Awards, for Best U.S. Edition of International Material, and for Best Painter/Multimedia Artist (interior art). We gave our Highest Recommendation to both Flight and its sequel/companion volume, The Reprieve.
