It’s a comic written by Fabien Vehlmann and draw by Bruno Gazzotti. It’s published since 2006 and today there are eight volumes we can buy.
The story is about five children who woke up a day and they are alone in their town : Fortville.
-The first character we discovered is Yvan who is 9 years old. He is intelligent, a little crazy (sometimes he thinks he is God) and he is a little coward and at the same time courageous.
-The second character is Leïla, she is 11 years old. She is a tomboy because she loves mechanic but she is very energical and optimist. She never panic and is always realistic.
-The third is Camille who is 8 years old. She is the perfect little girl who works hard for school, very wise, she understand directly the situation but sometimes she is naive.
-There is after, Terry who is the younger (5 years old) he is attachant but also naive and extrem in his reactions and feelings. He just lives to play with his toys, but he is also very courageous.
-The last one is the older (15 years old) Dodji. He is the « leader » at the beginning because of his age. He is ingenious and he is never afraid by anything, but he is also nervous.
So this is the band of five.
During these eight volumes, there happening a lot of adventures of these five kids, like fight again monkeys or meet other children. But during this time there are a lot of mysteries without answers like why them, what happens in this town and the adults.
It’s really difficult to admit these kids do all that like fight and struggle alone or drive a bus because they are just children. And we watch them grow up. But I really like this comic because mysteries are very interresting. And more there are volumes, more we understand with them what it is happening and what happens. The most difficult to admit is that they are very young but they do everything with a lot of realism, they think a lot and do choices sometimes hard. I forgot sometimes they’re children because they knew where they’re gone and give the impression to be tennagers, they’re really mature.
The fifth first volumes gone to be adapted on movie, I really want to know if it’s gone to be great as the comic.
It’s the only comic I read and I advise you to do the same if you like fantastic.
