Tonight, I'm going to suggest reading a good comic book, titled "Purgatoire" (purgatory).
The comic book is in French. I hope it won't be a problem for Vasudev, usman or humbert.

Story: To come out of purgatory, a dead young man must bring a living person back to the right path. This is the complete edition of a brilliant trilogy in every way.

Tonight, another good comic is available on the forum, titled Clinton Road and released in January 2020.
Unfortunately it is in French but I hope humbert and Maher, and the users who are fluent in French, will be able to read it.

The story:
New Jersey, 1978. Every morning, John, a highway patrolman in Passaic County, leaves home and drives to his friend Sam's bar to drink (bad) coffee and chat before starting his work day. Nothing strange about that so far… Except that Clinton Road â€" 10 miles of asphalt that John patrols every day â€" happens to be America's most haunted road, with disturbing disappearances, paranormal phenomena, and more. This cursed road is also where his only son, Benjamin, was last seen before he disappeared. Unable to get over his grief, John takes refuge in a twisted reality where his fantasies seem more powerful than reality…


Today, a new comic book series is available on the forum, titled Antares. It is composed of 6 albums.
This is the sequel of Aldebaran and Betelgeuse (and known as the 3rd cycle of the series). You can find the first two cycles in this topic here: https://www.nomaher.com/forum/index.php?topic=1804.msg29694#msg29694

The story of Antares:
After the failure of the Betelgeuse colonisation mission, Kim is back on Earth, where she is an increasingly popular figure. Meanwhile, advance scouts on planet Antares have witnessed some distressingly strange events. Worried about the future of this new mission, the sponsors of the Antares project call upon Kim to accompany the first colonists, offering legal amnesty for Alexa and Mark in exchange. It’s the beginning of a new adventure for the young woman and her friends.

Tonight, I'm going to talk about an excellent comic series titled "Thorgal"
Thorgal is a Belgian fantasy comic book series by the Belgian writer Jean Van Hamme and the Polish graphic artist Grzegorz RosiÅ,,ski. It combines several themes and legends, ranging from Norse mythology and Atlantean fantasy to science fiction, and such genres as dark drama, horror and adventure stories.

For me, this is one of the best comic series (I have all the books, in French, but the series is not finished).
These comics were translated in English and I am wondering if you would be interested in this series.
If you have some comics of Thorgal in English, feel free to put them in this topic anyway.


Tonigh, another comic series, titled "The best job in the world" is available on the forum (in French).

The story: 
The story takes place in 2009, as part of a tourism promotion campaign. Among tens of thousands of candidates, Doug Ellis, a young London trader, won the best job in the world! He will be the guardian of a desert island off the coast of Australia, in a comfortable villa!
Everything seems idyllic, although certain details are gradually starting to intrigue Doug, such as this strange cross planted under a tree in the garden, these mysterious scars of the owner of the premises, or even this room in which he was formally forbidden to enter… Exploring his prison, going from discovery to discovery, Doug's dream will soon turn into a nightmare: he will gradually understand what this place really is ...
Why is he here. Why he was chosen. Why he is alone. But is he really alone?

Note that the comics are In French.

Note that I'm going to update the content of this topic by uploading new comics of Thorgal next months (the first 35 volumes), in English. I have volume 36, 37 and 38 in French if you want them. Volume 39 is going to be released in 2021.
Maybe some of you are already reading those comics.


Tonight, 2 comic book series are available on the forum, kenya and Namibia, from the authors of the  worlds of Aldebaran sagas.

A young British agent is sent to Kenya to investigate strange eventsâ€"UFO sightings, living dinosaurs...
Kenya, 1947. A hunting expedition led by American writer John Remington makes a startling encounter, and then vanishes without a trace. Shortly afterwards, Katherine Austin, agent of the British Secret Intelligence Service, arrives in Mombasa. Her mission: investigate a series of mysterious sightings and incidents, of which the disappearance of the Remington party could be the latest. Undercover as a teacher, courted by colleagues who may be working for competing secret services, she’s about to enter a whole new reality…
