Giant - Tome 1: French Edition

£4.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

(Translated from the French):
Meeting the strength and heart of immigrant workers from New York in the 20th century New York, 1932. Despite the great depression that hit America hard, buildings are still rising higher in the sky over Manhattan and construction sites are proliferating . This is where Giant works, a taciturn man with an imposing stature. His colleagues instructed him to notify the family of an Irish compatriot of the latter's accidental death. But, hiding the sad truth, the mysterious colossus sends a nice sum of money to Mary Ann, the young widow, as well as a typed letter which could be from her husband ... She answers him and then begins a regular correspondence, without Giant dispelling the lie. Then comes the day when Mary Ann and her children disembark in New York ...

French-Canadian artist and author Mikaël has been involved in the comics scene since 2001. He has published numerous titles for younger readers as writer, illustrator, and colorist. He has also illustrated many children's books, with a very recognizable graphic style, full of color and nuance. Since 2006, Mikaël has also been working on stories geared toward adult readers, with more realistic artwork, both solo and in tandem with other authors and artists. In this vein, publisher Dargaud and Europe Comics published the remarkable Giant, a two-part series that takes place in New York in the 1930s.

CONDITION: Corner bump to top right of boards otherwise clean and bright with no inscriptions or notations.
