Book Description CINEBOOK: The 9th Art Publisher, Canterbury, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 1st English Edition. 48pp Suitable for: 15+ years. [In stock in Australia now, for immediate delivery]- In this first instalment .A man washes ashore near an old couple's house, barely alive. When he comes to, he has forgotten everything, including his name. The only clues to his identity: a key sewn into his clothes, a bullet wound to the head . and the number XIII tattooed on his shoulder. A meagre start to reconstruct one's self. Before XIII even begins to investigate, though, his past catches up with him, and it is anything but quiet. The trail is thin and the body count high, but XIII needs to know. Even if, as the outlines of a massive conspiracy start to appear, some of the truths uncovered seem unpleasant. Background to this series: Over the last 25 years, the dark, engrossing graphic novel series XIII has attracted a cult following in French-speaking countries and beyond, with readers eagerly awaiting every one of the 19th instalments published so far. Launched in 1984 by two Belgian authors, Jean Van Hamme and William Vance, XIII has been turned into a video game by Ubisoft as well as a TV mini-series starring Stephen Dorff and Val Kilmer, which premiered on France's Canal+ in October 2008 and on NBC in the US in February 2009. 'XIII: The Series', a Franco-Canadian TV series, premiered in April 2011 in France and Canada. The first series consisted of 13-episodes. Such is the popularity of the graphic novel that a gallery of its characters drawn by Vance was used to illustrate special-edition XIII scratch card tickets in France since 2000. The central character in XIII is an amnesiac on the run, caught in the crossfire as he tries to understand his true identity while attempting to make sense of various conspiracies swirling around him. With many twists and turns, it's a compulsive read for teenagers and adults alike and has already been translated into several languages. Initially serialised in Spirou magazine in 1984, XIII was created by Jean Van Hamme, the author behind Thorgal and Largo Winch - the latter in comic and book form as well as on the big screen, and William Vance, illustrator of the bestsellers Howard Flynn, Bruce Hawker, Bruno Brazil, and Bob Morane and Marshall Blueberry. Only three episodes of the cult Franco-Belgian bande dessinée originally saw the light of day in English in the late 1980s, so this new Cinebook series will enable fans new and old to discover and rediscover this mystery.
