Ralph Azham: "Why Would You Lie To Someone You Love?"

Overview

This is a new fantasy-adventure graphic novel series by Dungeon’s Lewis Trondheim.

Overview

This is a new fantasy-adventure graphic novel series by Dungeon’s Lewis Trondheim.
Within his tiny village, Ralph Azham is considered an insolent good-for-nothing layabout, a virtual pariah — particularly since he was supposed to be a Chosen One. (Things didn’t work out.) Yet his odd azure coloration and a few unique abilities (he can predict births and deaths) suggest that there may be more to him than meets the eye. And when the terrifying Horde stages one of its regular raids on his village, Ralph takes the young Raoul under his wing and sets out for a series of adventures... Trondheim is already well known to fantasy buffs for the worldwide success Dungeon, the complex set of interlocking series he created with fellow cartoonist Joann Sfar and a raft of artists. While Ralph Azham works within the same genre, this is a far more tightly focused, single-character-starring new series for which Trondheim is solely responsible — that is, except for the stunningly rich coloring, provided by his longtime collaborator Brigitte Findakly working in hand-executed watercolors for the first time in over a decade. Witty and fleet-footed like all of Trondheim’s work, madly inventive in terms of characters, creatures, and events, Ralph Azham is scheduled to run for at least six volumes and is presented in a distinctive “landscape” format.

Zainab Akhtar - Comics & Cola
“It's just so f***ing funny and sad at the same time; Trondheim nails the measurements of humour, pathos, drama -- all of it, perfectly here.”
