- Full Description
Three volumes in one: The Carnival of Immortals, The Woman Trap and The Equator Cold. In the middle of the 21st century, the Egyptian God Horus seizes the body of Nikopol, a deserter condemned to freeze in space for 20 years. Horus sends Nikopol on a journey across a war-ravaged Earth: Paris, London, Equator City and Africa. Bilal's epic fable paints a portrait of civilization in the midst of chaos and mutation, with a decaying Eastern Europe and failing western technology. Nudity, violence.
Bilal is one of the best selling graphic novel artists in Europe. His art has inspired such films as Fifth Element and Stargate. This collects into one handsome, oversized hardcover three of his seminal graphic novels. Beautifully painted throughout, this is a story of life and death and the gods, unlike any you will have ever read before. In France Bilal is as popular and as famous as Moebius himself, his works in museums and his French albums--our equivalent of graphic novels--perennial bestsellers. This is a set of his seminal works, with a new cover created in 2014.
"Enki Bilal was born in the former Yugoslavia in 1951. His Belgrade childhood, during the reign of Tito, was instrumental in setting the tone and geopolitical themes he develped during his collaborations (with Pierre Christin in particular) and in his solo work. In The Nikopol Trilogy, he explores the absurdity of the power of human obsessions and hubris."
"...An extraordinary comics literary achievement and a cracking good story." -Publisher's Weekly.
