ILS ONT DES NOUVEAUX POUVOIRS, Volume 1 -- teaser
ILS ONT DES NOUVEAUX POUVOIRS (="they have new powers") is a French comic book of mine (ed. MISMA), released on may 18.
The soundtrack joint was provided by tremendous San Francisco beatmaker/producer Edison, from his mixtape THE FULL MUSTAFA.
Please feel free to share!
More animations here.
I placed this on AN's homepage for this date. Congrats!
Here's the dedicated article.
Would you translate the title? Is there more info available in English?
The English translation for "ILS ONT DES NOUVEAUX POUVOIRS" is "They have new powers".
The comic book is in French, and so is my publisher MISMA's website, but here's a rough, homemade transcription of the book presentation :
No one knows how long passed between RAISON D'ÉTAT (= "State Interests", ed. Le Simo 1996 / Misma 2005) and ILS ONT DES NOUVEAUX POUVOIRS (ed. Misma 2006 / 2012) : one thing is sure however, "things have changed a lot since last time".
Right from the beginning indeed, the shattering of Estebald's radio set right in the course of a "nightly gardening" session definitely leads to multiplying signs of troubled times : and prince / anti-hero Estebald will have a hard time finding out what exactly is going on in the kingdom…
As a matter of fact, his task will be all the more difficult as the course of events is getting more… intense : a "faceless" horseman mercilessly urges across the highlands, invasive clergymen silently spread in the king's fort, and a flight of royal Boeings are launched in the pursuit of a mysterious "Chosen One" who turned into a bee…
Four overpowering chapters in other words, completed by a "bonus" full, color episode of Estebald's youths : exciting, weird and funny, ILS ONT DES NOUVEAUX POUVOIRS is MISMA's new epic!
With this 1st volume, Ronald Grandpey extends the themes of a unique fiction he started back in the mid-90s, constantly redefining and challenging them (without fearing a little bit of foolishness from time to time), and thereby by-passing the stereotypes of the heroic fantasy genre -- by far.
Diverse and versatile, ILS ONT DES NOUVEAUX POUVOIRS also depicts an emerging theocracy, in a pseudo-feudal regime where the most moronic arbitrary power already rules.
