Read full description of the books:



Muséum d'histoire naturelle du Jardin des plantes, 4 novembre 1911. Un œuf de ptérodactyle datant de la fin du Jurassique se craquèle légèrement. Un œil tout rond apparaît, bientôt suivi d'un bec parsemé de petites dents pointues. Puis le corps du ptérodactyle se déploie avant de briser la glace de sa cage de verre et de prendre son envol. Bientôt, tout Paris tremblera à la lecture des exploits sanglants de cet oiseau surgi du fin fond de la préhistoire… Ainsi commence Adèle et la bête, premier volet des aventures extraordinaires d'Adèle Blanc-Sec. Un hommage au feuilleton populaire, né de l'imagination de Jacques Tardi et publié pour la première fois en 1976. Plus de trente ans plus tard, ce classique de la bande dessinée entame une nouvelle carrière. Mais dans une présentation toute différente : en noir et blanc et, surtout, en petit format. Les éditions Librio tentent de renouer avec une formule – la BD en livre de poche   lancée dans les années quatre-vingt. Cette fois, tout est prévu pour garantir un succès. Le prix, d'abord : à dix francs le volume, difficile de ne pas se laisser tenter. La reproduction en noir et blanc et le grammage du papier sont de qualité. L'absence de couleur n'est pas un handicap, bien au contraire : elle permet de redécouvrir les aventures d'Adèle et de profiter pleinement de l'ambiance pleine de mystère du Paris de ce début de siècle, propice au charme du noir et blanc. Enfin, la reproduction des planches respecte le format original et ne nuit en rien à la lecture. Le ptérodactyle peut être rassuré : cette nouvelle présentation n'empêchera pas le lecteur de frissonner à la lecture de ses sinistres exploits… --Philippe Actère

Read information about the author

Ebook Adele & the Beast: The Most Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec read Online! Jacques Tardi is a French comics artist, born 30 August 1946 in Valence, Drôme. He is often credited solely as Tardi.

After graduating from the École nationale des Beaux-Arts de Lyon and the École nationale supérieure des arts décoratifs in Paris, he started writing comics in 1969, at the age of 23, in the comics magazine Pilote, initially illustrating short stories written by Jean Giraud and Serge de Beketch, before creating the political fiction story Rumeur sur le Rouergue from a scenario by Pierre Christin in 1972.

A highly versatile artist, Tardi successfully adapted novels by controversial writer Louis-Ferdinand Céline or crime novelist Léo Malet. In Malet's case, Tardi adapted his detective hero Nestor Burma into a series of critically acclaimed graphic novels, though he also wrote and drew original stories of his own.

Tardi also created one of French comics' most famous heroines, Adèle Blanc-Sec. This series recreates the Paris of early 20th century where the moody heroine encounters supernatural events, state plots, occult societies and experiments in cryogenics.

Another graphic novel was Ici Même which was written by Jean-Claude Forest, best known as the creator of Barbarella. A satire, it describes the adventures of Arthur Même who lives on the walls of his family's former property.

Tardi has produced many antiwar graphic novels and comics, mainly focusing on the collective European trauma of the First World War, and the pitfalls of patriotism spawned several albums (Adieu Brindavoine, C'était la guerre des tranchées, Le trou d'obus, Putain de Guerre...). His grandfather's involvement in the day-to-day horrors of trench warfare, seems to have had a deep influence to his artistic expression. He also completed a four-volume series on the Paris Commune, Le cri du peuple.

Fantagraphics Books translate and publish in English a wide range of Tardi's books, done by editor and translator Kim Thompson.[3] The books released so far are West Coast Blues (Le Petit bleu de la côte ouest), You Are There (Ici Même), and It Was the War of the Trenches (C'était la guerre des tranchées); a single album collecting the first two Adele Blanc-Sec volumes has also been published.
