Balak (a star from the world of French animation), Sanlaville, (a star from the world of French video gaming), and Vives (a star from the world of French comics) are the three powers behind the Last Man series.
"Last Man is irresistible. Blending elements of manga and bande dessinee with a loose boldness and a flair for fantasy, this series is a winner." --Paul Pope, author of Battling Boy"The art is particularly striking, with loose, flowing lines and spare details that make the fight scenes truly sing, while in close-up range, the characters' features tighten into focus, creating uniquely lovely portraiture." --Booklist"Fight scenes are buoyed by the use of minimal contours, with Balak, Viv s, and Sanlaville drawing on their respective experiences as animator, cartoonist, and video-game designer to give the action a visceral flow." --Publishers Weekly"Recommend to graphic novel fans looking for something new--they will not be disappointed." --School Library Journal"Sharp black, white, and gray illustrations work smoothly with the text, often featuring key wordless events that evoke the coziness of Adrian's relationship with his mother or the mostly silent physicality of a fight." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
