The Brand of Exiles by Jean van Hamme


The Brand of Exiles by Jean van Hamme

Thorgal has been gone for three years. Now, the last raiding expedition organised by the men of his village is late in returning. When a single survivor stumbles in to announce that their drakkar was boarded by the dreaded Shaigan, he also reveals that Shaigan is actually...Thorgal! Outraged, the grieving, vengeful Viking women banish Aaricia and her children and brand her an exile. All that's left for them is to try to find Thorgal again.

About the Author

Jean Van Hamme was born in 1939 in Belgium. His major breakthrough came in 1977, when he created the Viking hero Thorgal for Grzegorz Rosinski. The mix of medieval legends and heroic fantasy soon became a huge success, with major awards following. He is also the creator of the bestselling series Largo Winch and XIII (published in English by Cinebook). Grzegorz Rosinski is one of the most popular artists of comic books in Western Europe. Among his later works are the series Chninkel (with Van Hamme) and a series titled La complainte des landes perdues (with Jean Dufaux). In 2001, the Rosinski/Van Hamme duo published yet another comic book titled Western, based on a Western plot.
