Description

In this tour-de-force from award winning writer/artist Jean-Pierre Gibrat, the honor and glory sought in the Great War (seen in Book One of this series) have become mutilated and blurred memories. The October Revolution in Russia exudes hope in the hearts of the oppressed and draws in Matteo, the son of a Spanish anarchist. But first he stops in Collioure to visit his mother. That same evening he sees his beloved Juliet for a brief but memorable moment, and the next day with his father’s friend Gervasio, Matteo departs for Petrograd with camera in hand to document the advent of the more just and honorable world of his ideals. But once there, he learns that those ideals may very well become victim of the disputes and differences between the various factions leading the revolution.

About the Author

Jean-Pierre Gibrat was born in Paris in 1954, less than a decade after the Second World War. "In my generation," he says, "everyone was at least once asked the question- 'What would you have done if you had lived at that time?'" It was with the award-winning The Reprieve, and it's sequel, Flight of the Raven, that Gibrat began writing his own scenarios, seamlessly uniting words and pictures, and answering the question in his own way.
