We've reached the end of the Shaïgan-sans-merci cycle, a kind of conclusion to a six-album journey! Thorgal has recovered his memory, found his family and a happy ending is in sight for the Aergirsson family. Happy ending? No: it's not so easy to escape the mysteries of the past, especially when you come from the future... As Thorgal's skiff pulls away from the coast, a sail looms on the horizon. Friend or foe? Rosinski's art lies in his ability to transform this sluggish transition sequence into an exciting rebound. Through a succession of wide shots and close-ups, each with a different angle, the author builds a horizon line that swirls with the waves, simulating the pitching of the small boat. Little by little, the two ships come closer together. Great art!
