Sep 12, Olga rated it really liked it Shelves: graphic-novels-comic-book. The black and white graphics was amazing and that's why it's 4 stars.
The whole idea of this novel, for me, was way too much messianic. I like the black and white graphics and the story is quite simple but exciting.
It's interesting how the main character J'on develops himself throughout the story. He starts out as an insecure little creature who feels insignificant and meaningless. Slowly, you can see his confidence grow. The story is clearly based on the new testament with J'on symbolising the messiah. But overall, I thought it is an amazing comic book!
I can recommend it. View 2 comments. This is a rather virulent anti-religion fantasy, which seems strange at first sight considering the catholic backgrounds of a Belgian writer and a Polish cartoonist, and then perhaps precisely not. The story attacks the cruelty inherent in eschatological religions, concerned with all-powerful deities that plan the fall, punishment, and destruction of their creations.
So he is heroic when it counts. His companion is a pure hearted caricature whose main function is to shed her clothes, but nevertheless remain virginal. Besides her, there is a large amount of female nudity and a number of sexual situations throughout the story not all consensual, which is a concern to keep the protagonist fixated on his desire and his lack of luck in that particular regard.
This is a Franco-Belgian graphic novel from the 80s after all. I have read it many times and will undoubtably read it again, so it deserves four stars under my rules, but with a grimace or two. Bellissimo, sia per i disegni che per la storia, con una fine inusuale. Assolutamente da leggere sia per chi ama le graphic novel che per chi ama il fantastico nel senso ampio del termine.
Un grand classique, et pour de bonnes raisons! Un excellent moment de lecture. Well, that was a bit disappointing. And rape-y. Superbe BD! View 1 comment. Ouderwetse strip over een hobbit-achtig wezen dat op de wereld van de twee manen vrijheid probeert te brengen voor zijn volk. Hij ontworstelt zich aan slavernij, leeft korte tijd een leven van vrijeheid en hedonisme en krijgt dat een opdracht van Ee'n, de maker van de wereld. Hij gaat op zijn queeste en ontmoet allerlei spelers in zijn wereld en weet werkelijk wat in gang te zetten.
Mooi geschreven, mooi gemaakt. Ik heb de NL-zwart-wit versie, er schijnen tegenwoordig ook kleurenversies te zijn. Fumetto eccezionale quanto poco noto. Pieno di incongruenze logiche e narrative e altalenante sul piano grafico, ma comunque estremamente intenso, originale e provocatorio. E tristissimo, tragico, devastante. Ma proprio per questo meraviglioso.
In Italia esistono due edizioni: una in tre costosi volumi, orrendamente colorati. It was a decent read, but maybe I had too high hopes from the creative team that brought Thorgal. The religious allegory was a bit heavy-handed, leaving little room for interpretation. I can see how elements of this story made their way into the Thorgal series, so that's a positive. I doubt I'll be rushing back to this one. I just finished reading it and I'm impressed!
So simple, yet deep. Certainly not what I expected when I started reading it. It had been untouched on my bookshelf for some 8 years. I won't say more as I believe it is best read with no expectations.

How excited you must be at the beginning of a new era, which will be the greatest of all. Published in , the comic is an allegory of Christianity that deconstructs many of the tropes found in hero myths with a dark sense of humor. In the story, the land of Daar is constantly ravaged by war as the three immortals battle for dominance. It has yet to receive an official English translation, but fan scanlations can be found floating around the Internet.
