The end of the world has happened... and the insects won.
When humanity came face to face with insectoid aliens from outer space intent on taking over the earth, it never occurred to anyone that they would come out the other side of the battle that followed the losers. But they did. Now, with what remains of the human race in tatters, a small band of misfits scraping a living in the remins of a city question what it means to be truly alive in a world where surviving asks everything of you, and hope is just a memory.
The Beautiful Death Collection Paperback edition by Mathieu Bablet
Mathieu Bablet is a French creator born in 1987. A fan of horror and series B films, Bablet graduated from the ENAAI in Chambery (teaching in applied arts & image), and sent a presentation of his first comic book to Ankama editions. The Beautiful Death, or "La Belle Mort," was an immediate hit, recognising this young artist of Grenoble as an incredible talent.
