“It is not necessary to build a labyrinth when the universe is already one.”
True to this quote from Borgès, Jeremy Perrodeau takes the reader on a journey through a story of tortuous architecture... Three characters land on a deserted beach, on an unknown island. Immediately, they separate and each of them leaves, on his own, to accomplish his part of a secret quest. They then enter an intense and violent world; crossing landscapes of poisonous beauty, they must fight relentlessly to seize mysterious artifacts, while in the heart of the jungle stands an intriguing monolith...
This choral story reveals its true stakes in bits and pieces, seen successively from different points of view. But the monolith is the centrifugal force of this plot, and it won't be long before our heroes are caught in a parallel reality. With Isles La Grande Odysée—Jeremy Perrodeau's first comic book—the author of Crépuscule has already signed a thrilling adventure.
Swinging the reader around with punches and gunshots, the story carries with it whole sections of visual, sound, literary and cinematographic memory—somewhere between Lost, Indiana Jones, Yûichi Yokoyama and Robinson Crusoe.
