CINEBOOK

AUTHORISED HAPPINESS GN #2

(W) Jean Van Hamme (A) Griffo (CA) Morris

Three more short stories to illustrate the dangers of a welfare state running amok. A single card to access all the details of a man's life - personal data, medical history, bank details - now that would make everything simpler, wouldn't it? But what if the card stops working would the person still exist within society? And in a world where births are regulated, how can children born illegally survive in said society if it doesn't even recognize they exist and won't let them have access to anything?

Jacques is dead, burned at the stake for sorcery by terrified villagers. The truth, however, is that Jacques never existed, and was merely the reincarnation of all-powerful Icelandic sorcerer Grimu. His soul, freed at the moment of his second death, has possessed the local magistrate, and his thirst for vengeance makes him commit terrible deeds. The island's authorities are after him, though, and far worse than that: God himself has turned his eye towards the man who defies him!

Romane and Brahim have reached Algapower's artificial island, with the help of some cetaceans with a quite extraordinary behavior.
