Jean-Baptiste Poulain has been hired by the Baron of Brac to tutor his son. When the young teacher arrives on the island off the coast of Brittany, he's immediately struck by how much the population seems to both hate and fear their lord. Which doesn't stop the locals from going after the aristocrat's people. Jean-Baptiste is brutally attacked - just after Nolwenn, the baron's son, is found beaten to death -
Fabien Vehlmann proved his mettle with such hits as Green Manor and a Spirou one-off, before becoming in 2009 the new official team for Dupuis' flagship series with Yoann. His series Alone (Seuls) with Bruno Gazzotti has garnered critical and popular acclaim and earned two Youth Awards at the Angouleme Festival, as well as two Grand Prix from Le Journal de Mickey.
