About The Book
Jean-Pierre Dionnet, one of the founders of "Metal Hurlant," started a new genre in comics when he collaborated with artist Jean-Claude Gal ("Diosamante") in the late 1970s: Heroic Fantasy. It shortly thereafter gained the favor of the public and has since grown immensely. This is the occasion for all lovers of the genre to return to its roots. Witness, with the help of Gal's intricate style, the devastating effects of war as you follow an army's forward progress, and then join Arn's bloody quest for revenge.
About The Illustrator
Jean-Claude Gal was a French comic artist mostly known for his work in Metal Hurlant. He began his career as an art teacher near Paris before his short stories were published. Appearing in the very first issue of Metal Hurlant, Gal continued a partnership with editor/author/ co-founder of Humanoids, Jean-Pierre Dionnet, that included 13 years on the series “Armies”. He began working on “Diosamante”, written by Alexandro Jodorowsky until his death in 1994.
