Pages of the Day 3

Les Yeux d’étain de la ville glauque (Pewter Eyes of The Glaucous City), François Bourgeon.

(SPOILERS for the above mentioned French comics)

Ville glauque’s demise and Yuna’s farewell to Mariotte.

Les Yeux d’étain de la ville glauque (a mouthful title to be sure), is the second volume in the magnificent Les compagnons du crépuscule (The Twilight Companions), a fantasy trilogy by French master François Bourgeon, set during the 100 years war, in France. The first volume is more introductory, and the third is a true masterpiece, but it’s the second that resonates the most with me, with it’s intricate time-line and multi-levelled storytelling. There are many beautiful pages in that volume, but those two are my favourites.
