Very good historical comic collection

Lake of Fire - Nathan Fairbairn, Matt Smith

 

 

Not only looking like a French "bande dessinée" but dealing with a popular subject in that genre, the story of the Cathare heresy, this comic collection then introduces monsters into the plot for the crusaders to fight. Alien technology is involved but the brave knights fight on with heavy losses.

 

Nicely-illustrated and engagingly written, this book is a good introduction to the historical comic genre. The French are way ahead in this type but this is recommended to all.
