About The Book

The original adventures of London Donovan and his shadowy boss, “the Centenarian of the Carpathians,” in this action-packed spin-off from the best-selling Carthago.

These five individual, but interlinked, stories see Donovan and billionaire Feiersinger combating all manner of malicious myths and monsters from the Californian Bigfoot and deadly African dinosaurs, to Arctic sea creatures and giant Canadian wolves. Whether driven by a taste for adventure, a passion for scientific curiosity, or simply by pure obsession, join our unrelenting heroes as they chase and encounter creatures that are as mythical as they are deadly.

About The Illustrators

Jaouen was born in 1979 in Ganges in the Hérault. As a child, he dreamed of becoming an Olympic champion in the 1000-meter race. It was later, at the age of 15, that he discovered drawing...

Remaining faithful to this second passion, Jaouen entered the school of Fine Arts of Nimes for one year, before going to finish his studies at the Emile Cohl school in Lyon.

In 2007, he published his first album, Nova, with Éditions Soleil.

The following year, he participated in the project "Hanté" in collaboration with a group of authors, including Christophe Bec. From this meeting emerged a spin off of Carthago: Bluff Creek.

In order to explore all the richness of drawing, Jaouen has also worked for the press, youth illustration, advertising, and is considering teaching.
