Lacotte Elza & Jean-François
Every region and every country has its legends, its small and large stories. Scotland cherishes its ghosts, its haunted houses, and its Loch Ness monster, a national treasure even though it was a complete invention of a few madmen at the beginning of the 20th century.
On the other hand, the Gévaudan preserves its story of the Beast like a series of battles mixed with the aura of mystery, of hunts that never end, an enigma never solved—a monster with many heads, like a modern Lernaean hydra.
The story of the Beast has scarred the Gévaudan like a deep wound, never healed, because this senseless series of crimes has never fully revealed its secrets.
Written by Jean-François and illustrated by Elza.
Year of publication of the presented edition : 2018 (105 pages) (Second édition)
