Storyline: Francine, a teenage girl with precognition, has struggled through a lifetime of exploitation: first by her parents, then by Dr. Brenner of Hawkins Laboratory. Dr. Brenner wants to harness her powers as well as those of the other gifted children that they hold captive at the lab. Wracked by increasingly disturbing visions, she sees an opportunity for her and all the children to escape. But at what cost?

Today, I'm going to suggest a good short story, titled Il colombre ("Le K" in French), which is part of a 1966 short story collection by the Italian writer Dino Buzzati. The titular story introduces a sea monster called the colomber, which became the most famous of Buzzati's monster characters. I guess that shadow.97 or aa1234779 have already read this short story.

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 – 10 miles of asphalt that John patrols every day – 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 Rosiński. 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.

Tonight, a new comic series, titled Phoenix, is available on the forum (in French).
This is a dynamic story with many mysteries, the clues are delivered in homeopathic doses so that the riddle remains well-preserved at the end of the first 2 volumes without altering the interest of reading.
For those who are able to read it, it is a fantastic story that I hope will keep all its promises (I didn't read the last book). The drawing made by Frédéric Peynet and Delphine Rieu is bright, clear and precise.
