From the artist and co-creator of Something is Killing the Children! MARKETING DESCRIPTION: ABLAZE presents two graphic novels featuring Eisner and Ringo Award-winning artist Werther Dell'Edra, collected together for the first time as a special price. In He Who Fights with Monsters, it's World War 2 and the struggle between good and evil is in full force. In Prague, the great Bohemian city is being oppressed by the Nazi occupation and the population lives in terror, while the resistance forces try to organize themselves in the shadows. It is an almost impossible task. With the ruthless SS tightening their grip on every street and neighborhood with overwhelming might, only one hope feeds the struggle. A crazy hope, which rests on the fragile foundations of an ancient, monstrous legend... In The Voices of Water, under a persistent rain, which seems destined to never subside, Stavros lives and moves through the streets of a dark and gloomy nameless city. He has a job and a fiancée his life is normal. Yet several, different voices talk to him - sometimes whispering, sometimes whining or yelling - whenever he hears the water running. One day, as Stavros wanders the city under a heavy rain, the voices become insistent, revealing his deepest, unspeakable secrets, as well as his dreams and memories. He is tormented by these mysterious voices, perhaps a sign of his madness. Or perhaps of a wider, collective madness, which infects everyone around him, to the point of being transmitted to the entire universe.

A MANS SKIN GN

Award winning fairy tale about love! Once upon a time in Renaissance Italy, Bianca, a young lady from a good family, is of marriage age. Her parents find her a fiance? to their liking: Giovanni, a rich merchant, young and pleasant. The wedding looks set to go smoothly even though Bianca can't hide her disappointment at having to marry a man she knows nothing about. But before the marriage, she learns the secret held and bequeathed by the women of her family for generations: a 'man's skin'! By donning it, Bianca becomes 'Lorenzo' and enjoys all the attributes of a young man of stunning beauty. She can now visit the world of men incognito and get to know her fiance? in his natural environment. In her male skin, Bianca frees herself from the limits imposed on women. The morals of the Renaissance then act as a mirror to our present time and poses several questions: why should women be treated differently from men? Why should their freedom be the object of contempt and coercion? Tackling universal themes through a captivating and subtle fairy tale, Hubert and Zanzim brilliantly question our relationship to gender and sexuality...but not only that. By mixing morality and humor, A Man's Skin invites us to the mad and noble quest for love. This international bestselling title has already been highly awarded, including all the following: PRIX Ti ZEF DE LA BD 2020 (Festival Brest en Bulle), Grand Prix RTL de la Bande Dessinée 2020, Prix Landerneau BD 2020, Prix Wolinski de la BD du ' Point ' 2020, Grand Prix de la critique ACBD (Association des Critiques et journalistes de Bande Dessinée) 2021, Prix des Libraires Canal BD 2021, Fauve de Lycéens (Angoulême 2021.
