Thorgal and his family have left Arachnea’s island to continue seeking a place to live in peace. As they sail along unknown shores, they’re attacked by pirates, then rescued by Prince Zarkaj, who takes them to his palace and pampers them – especially Aaricia. But when Jolan and his mother turn out to have caught the terrible Blue Plague, the prince has them thrown into a guarded pit to die – and it’s up to Thorgal to escape in search of a cure.

He’s a child of the stars, beloved of the gods and touched by destiny, but also a reluctant hero, a simple man with simple dreams. Thorgal: an extraordinary Viking saga with strong elements of science fiction, by one of the master scriptwriters of Franco-Belgian comics.

The mix of medieval legends and heroic fantasy soon became a huge success, with major awards following. He is also the creator of the bestselling series “Largo Winch” and “XIII” (published in English by Cinebook). Grzegorz Rosinskiis one of the most popular artists of comic books in Western Europe. Among his later works are the series “Chninkel” (with Van Hamme) and a series titled “La complainte des landes perdues” (with Jean Dufaux).
