They saw the rise and fall of Catherine de Medici and ended with the accession to the throne of Henry IV. To be totally honest on first reading of this story it makes little or no direct reference to that aspect of French history and would appear on face value to be a simple tale of greed, sibling rivalry and betrayal were it not for the appearance of enslaved men and the uprising. The most exiting aspect is that it now appears possible for Frew to acquire more of these older previously unpublished stories that have been laying dormant in a Swedish archive. This story was written by Michael Tierres (which is an anagram used by Claes Reimerthi), who is one of Sweden’s most prolific comic book writers beautifully supported by the art work of Jaime Vallve. I also have the follow up story Blood Night which is set in the same period.
