Four new comics for a good start to the year
A monster story, manga of the future, revolutionary children and a trip to Greece are on the menu for these four albums released in early 2023.
a personal monster
The concept is quite amazing at first. In this world, which is in every way identical to ours, every human is born with an associated monster. It comes out of the egg only at puberty. A kind of avatar that seems to reflect our personality. Éloïse, a young student, doesn’t have her monster yet.
When he arrives, bad luck, he’s a mean monster. He is endowed with magical powers and is much more autonomous than normal. In his first comic, Enzo Berkati recounts the change in the life of a lonely young heroine. Touching.

In the Bastille!
In Paris in 1789, people are hungry. Workers in penury, craftsmen almost bankrupt. As for the street children, they manage as they know how. This new Bordas series is about how Michel, the son of a tailor, will join a group of petty thieves who live hidden on the rooftops of the capital.
During this spring of rebellion, he finds himself alone after his father is arrested for being a little too revolutionary. Suddenly, Michel has only one goal: to free his father, imprisoned in… the Bastille.

Sylvain Mazas likes to move. French, lives in Germany and regularly visits restaurants in countries like ours. He tells it in his books, a mixture of graphic novels, comics and tables of full numbers. This graphic designer has a knack for solving very complicated topics with very simple expressions and drawings.
In the 3rd volume of his adventures, he looks back on his installation in Greece, his work with refugees, how he intends to “reduce the inequalities between the rich and the poor” and also reimburse his wife.
