Comic Book: La Quête de l'Oiseau du Temps
La Quête de l'Oiseau du Temps (The Quest for the Time Bird) is an epic fantasy Franco Belgian Comic by Serge Le Tendre and Régis Loisel. It consists of four books in the main series, plus three in the ongoing Prequel cycle. Considered a reference in its genre, both for its vivid art and powerful storytelling.
In immemorial times, the evil god Ramor was banished in a conch. However, as the witch-princess Mara finds out, Ramor is about to break free, and there is no time to renew the spell that binds it to the conch. She send her daughter Pelisse (Roxanna in the English translation) to find her old lover, the retired knight Bragon to retrieve both the conch and the egg of the time-bird, the latter allowing her to stop time so she can bind Ramor again.The story revolves around ageing characters dealing with their past, and stepping down to find peace.
