The New Ice Age Jdrien Cycle

Around 2050, the Moon explodes, undermined by nuclear waste stored by men. A gangue of various dust encircles the Earth, depriving it of solar light and heat. The post-disaster night sets in. Ice climbs pushing back surviving populations to protected islands. Around 2350, a new civilization settled, dominated by clans that control the railway lines, replacing the power of nation-states.  The New Ice Age Jdrien Cycle. A comic by Philippe Bonifay and Studio Jotim.
2350. The Earth is no more than a glacial cap dotted with domes under which various populations live. The people are, one suspects, the most unfortunate: they live under temperatures of less than 15 °. The Aiguilleurs are the masters of the railways, whose motto, "immobility, it is death, mobility, it is life" indicates that cities, dwellings can be transported at any moment. Here are the Shareholders who control everything, especially wealth. They live in an opulence that contrasts with the misery of the People. And then, the Roux, mysterious beings who are cold-weathered and endowed with an impressive sexual appetite. Who are they, where do they come from? Will they be the engine that will cause a society to collapse from injustice, arbitrariness and violence? Indeed, in the image of a pack ice, everything seems frozen in this cloisonné world. Until the day when a simple civil servant, Lien Rag, begins to ask disturbing questions, likely to waver the fortresses on rail.

But Alfred has designs on playing the king for longer than a single battle, leaving his cousin for dead after fouling his wounds. Alvar’s life is saved when he is discovered by a hunchbacked healer woman. She tends to his wounds and lays with Alvar, as his fever deludes him into thinking the healer is his fair queen, Violena.
