Démon des glaces, Le

Art: Jacques Tardi

Script: Jacques Tardi

Status: One Shot

Genre: Fantasy

In 1899, a ship navigating the Arctic Ocean comes across a stunning sight: a ghostly, abandoned vessel perched high atop an iceberg. Soon, the sailors' own ship is dispatched via a mysterious explosion. Enter Jerome Plumier, whose search for his missing uncle, the inventor Louis-Ferdinand Chapoutier, brings him into contact with the sinister, frigid forces behind this - and soon he, too, is headed towards the North Pole, where he will contend with mad scientists, monsters of the deep, and futuristic submarines and flying machines. Told with brio in hilarious slabs of vintage purple prose, The Arctic Marauder finds Tardi in fantastical mode and is a keystone of his oeuvre.
