Spanish edition. I do not speak Spanish but just looking at the pictures see that this book is about poverty and ignorance. The artist is amazing, but I am not sure I would enjoy the story if it were in English.

The evil god Ramor is about to be released from his mystical prison. The sorceress Mara can stop it, but she needs time to work the enchantment, time which she doesn't have, so she sends her daughter Pelisse and the aged warrior Bragon (who may or may not be Pelisse's father) to search for the legendary Time Bird. Aided by a not-so-mysterious "stranger" they face mercenaries, hunters, angry birds and many other obstacles. A fun adventure with great art and infused with a bawdy sense of humor.

In this graphic novel, we follow a gruff heroic knight forced out of retirement and a beautiful warrior maiden with a temper as they search for the magical ingredients the maiden's sorceress-princess mother requires to stop the return of a despotic imprisoned god.

With an interesting tonal mix between the typical epic fantasy stakes, typical low fantasy character flaws and splashes of irreverent blue comedy, the story is rather engaging, even as it to some extent goes through the motions of the typical genre Quest. This is, however, greatly alleviated by the ending, which feels both surprising and inevitable at the same time.

What really sells one on this story, though, is of course the gorgeous artwork, which really gets a chance to shine in the huge page format this book has.

However, the English translation is unfortunately rather erratic, sometimes making it hard to know exactly what a character is referring to with a given statement, and I often had to pan back and forth between several panels to make proper sense of what was being said. If you can read it in the original French, I therefore suspect you'll get a much better experience.

But even with the translation's issues, I really enjoyed this, and would not hesitate to recommend it to any fans of epic fantasy who are looking for something pretty to read that is both tried and true, but also ever so slightly different.

Pyrénée dates from 1981 and was reprinted in Dutch and French in the second part of the 90s.

A bear escapes from the circus during a conflagration that destroys most of the surrounding village. He finds a girl next to the body of her dead mother in a ruin outside the village and carries her with him into the Pyrenees. What follows is a sweet story of a young girl in search of humanity by Loisel. Sternis' romantic drawing fits very well with the innocence of the main character. Alas, there never was a second album.… (more)
