The Midlife Crisis (2016)

Script by Florence Cestac - Art by Florence Cestac. Usually around about the 40 mark, the human male has a habit of leaving his well-worn spouse in search of greener pastures. As they say, the grass is always greener on the other side. Florence Cestac dissects this subject of common interest, from the very first symptoms right up to the final outbreak, via the pangs of “bathrobe-sofa” depression. “You’re the love of my life! But with her, it’s something else… she’s a fairy,” declares our hero with the touching honesty of a male en route to adventure. So once our hero’s skipped off into the sunset with his fairy, our heroine begins asking herself a series of counter-productive questions regarding her general attitude and in particular her cellulite. 

Paradise Lost (2016)

For many, Milton’s epic is a poem to admire rather than enjoy. Auladell’s adaptation is a more accessible beast, heavily abridged, its pictures focusing on the drama of a tale of devils, treason and temptation. Many comics have visited cosmic realms, but Auladell crafts something definitive, from hell’s vast plains and twisted demons to the parapets of heaven. His expressive, black-hatted Satan delivers Milton’s juicy soliloquies with style, while the war in heaven is a splendid mix of cannons, single combat, mist and darkness.

Hearts at Sea (2016)

Script by Cyril Pedrosa - Art by Cyril Pedrosa. Jean-Paul is a shy, slightly gawky young man leading a rather unremarkable life in which his oppressive mother is all too present. As the anniversary of his father’s death approaches, he feels increasingly dissatisfied with his life, and increasingly aware of his loneliness. It’s time for things to change. So, without telling anyone, he embarks on a singles cruise and takes his first steps in a brave new world.
