Richard Aldana, the mysterious stranger who entered the Games in the first volume of Last Man, continues to defeat all of his competitors, despite his outlandish refusal to use any magic, and to rely solely on martial arts. With young Adrian fighting at his side, he's beginning to look like a likely contender for the Royal Cup.

But in a breathtaking twist, everything changes: this world is not what you thought it was, and Richard Aldana is certainly not who he claimed.

With the same fast-paced action-oriented storytelling and gorgeous art as The Stranger, the second volume of the Last Man series changes all the rules, and will leave readers eagerly awaiting book three!

About the Author:

BASTIEN VIVES studied illustration and animation at the Ecole des Gobelins. After movie-making classes, he dived into comics, and his first title came out in 2007.

BALAK (aka Yves Bigerel) works as a storyboard artists, 2D animator and TV show director in France. He works with Marvel Comics on the new digital Infinite Comics brand, as a storyboard artist (Avengers VS X-men with Mark Waid, Guardians of the Galaxy with Brian M. Bendis, Wolverine: Japan's Most Wanted with Jason Aaron and Jason Latour).

MICHAEL SANLAVILLE graduated from the Emile Cohl school, and later the Gobelins, after which he followed twin careers in animation (at the Xilam studio) and in comics with Casterman publishers.

The Royal Cup is the sequel to The Stranger, and the second volume in their Last Man series.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 8 Up—This sequel to The Stranger (First Second, 2015) picks up right where the narrative left off with the Royal Cup tournament underdogs, the young novice Adrian Velba, and the mysterious rogue fighter Richard Aldana. With Richard at his side, Adrian is gaining more confidence in his ability to battle in the ring and he is more of a competitor as the team heads to the championships. Richard, too, is becoming more familiar with the intricate rules surrounding the Royal Cup and does what he can to propel them to the final battle. Also, things begin to heat up between Richard and young Adrian's mother, Marianne. This does not distract him from the last Royal Cup fight, which is certainly epic. Even before the final match, people are becoming increasingly suspicious of Aldana, and he must distance himself before he gets in too deep. Action scenes propel this underdog fight story again. The black-and-white illustrations are well done and captivating. Teens will be rooting for Richard and Adrian. They make an odd couple, but they learn from each other every step of the way. Enough questions are answered in this second volume of the graphic novel series, but there is still an abundance of mystery surrounding the older man, and it looks like Adrian's mother has some tricks up her sleeve as well. VERDICT Teens of all ages will enjoy this mythical journey but will have to have read the first installment to understand this entry fully.—Morgan Brickey, Marion County Public Library System, FL
