Description

Set in a suburb that is both nowhere and everywhere, King of the Flies combines the intricacy and subtlety of the best European graphic novels with a hyper-detailed, controlled noir style derived from the finest American cartoonists. The book first appears to be a series of unrelated short stories, but it soon becomes obvious that these disparate episodes weave together to form a single complex narrative - revolving around Eric, a n'er-do-well, drug-taking teenager at war with his stepfather and, apparently, the whole world.

Author Biography

Michel Pirus was born in Thionville, France, in 1962. He broke into comics (as a writer/artist) with his series "Champagne and Cookies" for Metal Hurlant in 1983. He was the co-writer on the Richard McGuire-designed segment of the French animated horror anthology Fear(s) of the Dark, released in 2008. Pascal (Mezzo) Mesenburg (artist) was born in Drancy, France, in 1960. His French graphic novels (with Pirus) include Two Killers and Mickey Mickey. He is currently working on the third and final volume of King of the Flies.
