Each region, each country has its legends, its small and big stories. Scotland treasures its ghosts, its haunted houses and its Loch Ness monster, a real national treasure but the pure invention of a few wacky people from the beginning of the 20th century.

On the other hand, Gévaudan preserves its history of the Beast, like a series of feats of arms mixed with a halo of mystery, never-ending hunts, an never-solved enigma, a multi-headed watch, like a modern-day Lernaean Hydra.

The story of the Beast has marked Gévaudan as a deep, never-healed wound, as this senseless series of crimes has never fully revealed its secrets.

Written by Jean-François and illustrated by Elza.
