Front Lines

Front Lines is as a new series concept (close to publications) dedicated - commemorative year oblige - the Second World War. This inaugural episode is divided into two parts of equal size. In the first half, screenwriter Jean-Pierre Pécau presents and implements the six players who will experience adventures moult over the four volumes announced. 
Four athletes, a journalist, a Communist: we will follow their acts of bravery, their friendships and their love throughout the Second World War. The second part proposes to follow one of them, Emile Berger, alias Snowy, who throne cover with a false air of Sylvester Stalone, while his personality "slinger big heart" actually confuses more willingly with that of Lino Ventura. It falls to about a nice editorial blunder: his name Berger throughout the album, but Soubise in 4th cover. This second sequence is interested in the first weeks of war, focusing on the commitment of the cyclist on a tank in the town of Stonne Ardennes, where the fighting is. Good news without losing his scholarship, Pécau is more fluid than ever narratively. The design of this first volume has meanwhile been given to Serbian illustrator, Brada, for realistic graphic score serious though impersonal, near Kordey style, to reassure fans Pécau. Hopefully the designer Benoît Dellac manage to restore the features - and therefore the psychology of six characters - to ensure continuity in the second part, already released in early June 2014.
