Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It is the Winter of 1109 in the official calendar of the Pajan Empire. Okko and his faithful companions — the mysterious masked Noburo, Noshin the monk and young Tikku — arrive at the City of the Blasting Powder. While seeking a guide to help them cross the perilous chain of the seven monasteries, they meet a skillful warrior: Mow of the Wind. Okko and his companions seek the Forbidden Libraries of the Eighth Monastery on the Roof of the World, but the way is dangerous, and the ancient powers of the Earth demand a blood sacrifice when awoken.

Synopsis:

"Okko and his companions narrowly escape a backstreet ambush in one of the Pajan Empire's many fortress cities and begin tracking their monk-robed attackers to a remote monastery. One of the ominous clues the foursome uncovers on a treacherous journey into mountainous wilderness includes a rumor that corpses are unaccountably disappearing from Pajan battlefields. After they endure several near-fatal encounters with spell-brandishing sorcerers, it becomes clear that their adversaries are no ordinary monks. When Okko goes incognito as one of the monastery's spectral brethren, he makes a disquieting discovery: the monks are raising the dead for a skeletal army poised to overthrow Pajan civilization."--Amazon.com.

About the Author

Humbert Chabuel was born in Annecy and educated in Lyon. After a short stint in art school, headed for Paris to work with Luc Besson on film projects like 'The Fifth Element', starring Bruce Willis. His first comics project was 'Kazandou', a series of two books written by Gess and drawn by Chabuel under his own name in 1996-97. He worked with the likes of Moebius and Mézières and co-created the artistic label Oki Doki for his advertising, video game and television work. He created 'Okko', his first comic series that is published by Delcourt. Hub showed himself an allround author with this popular samurai series with fantasy elements set in Japan. In addition to 'Okko', Hub has drawn the 'Future Exposed' from a script by Uncx and Abraxxxas for IOT Records (2007) and written 'Aslak' with Fred Weytens for Emmanuel Michalak for Delcourt (2011). Hub draws his inspiration from comic artists like Hergé, Hayao Miyazaki and Michetz.
