The Scorpion Volume 7: The Mask of TruthThe Scorpion Volume 7: The Mask of Truth
by Stephen Desberg and Enrico Marini

One by one, the Pope’s warrior monks fall to the Scorpion’s blade or desert their master. Feeling his enemy circling ever closer, Trebaldi grows desperate and hires Rome’s best paid assassins to go after him – and whomever else stands in his way.

As the women in his life choose their destinies, an old enemy reappears to plague the Scorpion… or perhaps to bring him the truth at last, hidden behind his mask.

This is one of our favourite Cinebook series here at downthtubes.

Valerian Volume 6: Ambassador of the ShadowsValerian & Laureline: Ambassador of the Shadows
by Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mezieres

Point Central is a multicultural space station that serves as a sort of United Nations to the galaxy. Tasked with protecting the new ambassador from Earth, Valerian is kidnapped alongside his charge in a lightning commando attack. It’s up to Laureline to do all the heavy lifting and slog through the seedy bowels of the station as she tries to locate and rescue them — and figure out who kidnapped them and why.

Long John Silver Volume 4: Guiana-CapacLong John Silver Volume 4: Guiana-Capac
by Xavier Dorison and Mathieu Lauffray

The Neptune is gone, stolen by the Indian guide Moc, or maybe by Guiana-Capac’s malevolent gods. The last members of the ill-fated expedition — Silver, Dantzig, Livesey and Bonnet — are stranded in the ancient city. Far from being broken, however, they will face head-on what lies inside the gargantuan ruin, each for his own reasons: revenge, duty, gold… or to rescue the beautiful Lady Hastings. For Moc isn’t done with them, and he has plans for Vivian.

by Job and Derib

Nanabozo, the Great Rabbit, is… well, a giant rabbit. He’s also a powerful sorcerer, and Rainbow’s spirit guide, as Great Eagle is for Yakari. When he appears to the young Sioux to tell him his charge has disappeared, little Yakari is swept up in a quest that will make him turn into a giant, run on smoke, fly, and travel to the ice banks where the polar bears play.
