Tom McKenna, owner of a small-town diner who is thrust
into the spotlight after confronting two robbers in
self-defense, thus changing his life forever.

From the petit vingtième, and in 50 years of feats, the
famous reporter traveled to all 5 continents, explored the
deep sea, climbed Himalaya Mountain and walked on the
moon. The purity of Tintin’s adventures is retranscribed
n this album through the portrait made by Philippe
Goddin of Tintin’s creator and his work.

Nine members of the Soviet politburo gather at
an icy mountain retreat for a weekend of hunting.
Each guest has a personal tale involving their mutual
host, Vassily Chevchenko, a CPSU patriarch whose
career dates back to Lenin’s time.

Two men meet for dinner each week. Over the course of
one of these drunken evenings, the writer recounts
the stories he would write, had he the courage.
Extraordinary characters inspire him, their lives
pulled and pummeled by fate and politics, as if they
are balls of dough in the hands of an all-powerful
noodle maker.

Rubrique-à-Brac is a humorous comic strip series created
in 1968 by Gotlib. Rubrique-à-Brac is an assortment
of short unrelated strips. Its fairly realistic graphics
contrast with the surreal, sometimes satirical
humour of its textual content. It is now widely regarded
as one of the cornerstones of today's humorous
bande dessinée.

Emmanuel Carrère occasionally reaches
Dostoyevskian heights of anguish in this memoir.
Although he doesn’t actually murder
anyone like Rasklonikov in Crime and
Punishment, he plunges into states of intense
introspection and despair to produce some
psychologically tortured prose.
