Mattéo, Book One: 1914-1915

Jean-Pierre Gibrat (w & a & c)

A beautifully drawn and deeply emotional graphic novel that follows the singular destiny of a man caught up in the fervent passions of a tumultuous period that begins with the Great War of 1914. In a small town at the foot of the Pyrenees on the French Mediterranean, lifelong friends are called to arms, except for Mattéo, who, as the son of Spanish refugees, is exempt from service. Yet when his fellow villagers—including Juliet, the woman he loves—express disdain for his pacifism, he embarks on an epic adventure that will have a resounding impact on all their lives.

The Reprieve

Jean-Pierre Gibrat (w & a & c)

Escaped prisoner-of-war Julien Sarlat is hiding in the small village of Cambeyrac during World War II, using a secret observation post overlooking the village square to watch the permanent theater that people offer in the course of the day. Loves, hatreds, jealousies, cowardices, acts of heroism… nothing escapes the observer’s eye, especially not the beautiful waitress Cécile. Until the moment comes when, spectator no more, he must become an actor himself and meet his destiny. This hidden life he had hoped to live was just a reprieve.
