Kazan by Gaku Miyao( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kazan a vu le jour dans une contrée désertique où l'eau n'est plus qu'une arme supplémentaire utilisée par des hommes cupides afin d'assouvir leur soif de pouvoir. Sa vie bascule le jour où son père, sur le point de mourir, le vend à un démon contre une louche d'eau. Or, l'homme des ténèbres échoue à prendre la vie de Kazan et se résigne, en échange, à kidnapper Elsie, sa meilleure amie. Ayant assisté à l'enlèvement, le garçonnet quitte son village afin de la retrouver. Il sera accompagné dans sa quête par son fidèle aigle blanc ainsi que par Fawna, une jeune fille dotée du pouvoir de faire jaillir l'eau de la terre, qu'il a sauvée de vils marchands d'esclaves. À eux deux, réussiront-ils à libérer leur peuple et à faire de l'eau une ressource accessible à tous? -- Une trame légèrement confuse, à laquelle donne vie un graphisme de qualité très inégale. Les scènes représentant les combats du héros avec ses opposants sont particulièrement difficilement déchiffrables en raison d'une utilisation excessive de lignes de force. [SDM]
