Description

Little does she realize that the Isle comes by its ominous name honestly, as the location of a secret school for executioners and torturers, where apple-cheeked youngsters are taught the finer points of extracting information from prisoners... and then putting an end to their lives in a wide variety of gruesome ways. And they've reached the point in their studies where theory should ideally give way to practice, so an influx of uninvited visitors comes as a blessing to the faculty And yes, this story is a comedy. Albeit a dark one For the first time in his career, Jason has enlisted a writer: Fabien Vehlmann. (Vehlmann has written a number of graphic novels for the French and American markets, including an installment of the legendarySpirou series and the three-volume Green Manor continuity, of which two volumes have been released in English.) Vehlmann has managed to interiorize Jason's deadpan style and wit perfectly, creating a uniquely smooth and successful collaboration.show more

Review quote

This is an absolutely hilarious adventure romp ... Jason's hangdog art style perfectly complements the deadpan humour [Vehlmann]'s penned here. A child running rings round all and sundry is a tale that's oft been told, but rarely with the panache and wit displayed you'll find within these pages.--Jonathan Rigbyshow more
