La foire aux immortels

La foire aux immortels Review

It's the year 2023 and Alcide Nikopol has been revived from a state of suspended animation after 30 years orbiting Earth. In the meantime, the planet has suffered two nuclear wars, and France is ruled by the ruthless dictator J.F. Choublanc. The immortal gods of Egyptian antiquity have also reawakened to revive their rule over humanity, and they now hover above the crumbling technopolis of Paris in a massive stone pyramid/airship. Horus, the renegade falcon god, takes possession of Nikopol's body, rendering him immortal, and concocts a conspiracy to overthrow the Choublanc regime. When Nikopol cracks under the pressure of Horus's possession, he is reduced to muttering the poetry of Baudelaire while he wanders the halls of a mental hospital.

    Ma première lecture de Bilal et... je reste un peu sur ma faim. C'est pas mal mais je déteste l'idée des dieux égyptiens. Graphiquement, c'est pas mal, je sais pas ce que ca valait a l'époque mai...

    Bilal es un genio gráfico: su dominio del color, la composición compacta, las texturas y el trazo clásico hacen de esta novela gráfica un deleite. La narrativa, Jodorowskyana a más no poder, tien...
