The Nieuport Gathering [Petrus]
A moving historical graphic novel on World War One.
In the trenches of World War One three soldiers meet. They have just countered the first attacks of the Germans at the Yzer front. They spend the day together on November 1 1914 and agree to see each other again in exactly 10 years. If they survive the war, that is.
This is the story of 3 men, 3 soldiers with their own history and the 3 lives they have led: before, during and after the Great War. A dramatic story, enforced by the beautiful drawings of Ivan Petrus. All of the costumes and details illustrated in this graphic novel are historically correct.
Ivan Petrus is a comic book artist. He also makes animated movies and theatre productions. World War One, the first war ever to be photographed and filmed, is his great passion.
