Isle of 100,000 Graves am Book Set in Pirate Times, Gwenny’s pop went a-sailing to find the legendary treasure of the Isle of 100,000 graves but never returned. Then Gwenny finds a map to the island in a bottle and joins a swashbuckling crew of pirates to find out what happened to him. But what she discovers is something completely unexpected…Jason is one of my favourite cartoonists and coupled with a great writer like Fabien Vehlmann you get a magnificent book like Isle of 100,000 Graves. Jason’s best known for his silent or sparsely-written comics so Vehlmann’s inclusion is why the book has more dialogue than usual. But Jason shows he is an able adaptor of other people’s scripts with this comic. Vehlmann’s clever and humorous writing suits Jason’s deadpan storytelling style so well that this is one of the most perfect collaborations I’ve ever read. Gwenny’s a plucky heroine in the style of True Grit’s Mattie Ross and uses her intelligence to outwit her abusive mother, con a pirate crew to take her where she wants, and blackmail a pirate into being her bodyguard. She’s a brilliant protagonist.I won’t go into what’s on the Isle of 100,000 Graves or what happened to Gwenny’s father, partly not to spoil any readers who haven’t had the pleasure to find out for themselves yet, but also because this review would just be full of gushing praise about this scene or that scene and that character, etc. It’d be praise overload without really adding anything you’d get from the experience of reading the story for yourself. Suffice it to say that this is a highly enjoyable quality comic that anyone looking for an amusing and inventive story will really like. I’ve read this three times now and it always impresses me. I recommend checking out Jason’s other books too - I honestly think he might be the best living cartoonist in the world - but Fabien Vehlmann’s books are terrific too. His Green Manor series is a must-read for Agatha Christie fans and his 7 Psychopaths book does the Suicide Squad concept better than any Suicide Squad comic I’ve come across (Sean Phillips also draws it!). But if you read just one of his, Isle of 100,000 Graves is the best!. Five years ago, little Gwenny s father found, inside a bottle, a map with instructions on how to reach the mysterious Isle of 100,000 Graves and its legendary treasures and then he vanished Now Gwenny, having stumbled across another bottle shipped map, enlists the dubious help of a shipful of pirates, sets out to find the island, and her long lost dad.Little does she reFive years ago, little Gwenny s father found, inside a bottle, a map with instructions on how to reach the mysterious Isle of 100,000 Graves and its legendary treasures and then he vanished Now Gwenny, having stumbled across another bottle shipped map, enlists the dubious help of a shipful of pirates, sets out to find the island, and her long lost dad.Little does she realize that the Isle comes by its ominous name honestly, as the location of a secret school for executioners and torturers, where apple cheeked youngsters are taught the finer points of extracting information from prisoners and then putting an end to their lives in a wide variety of gruesome ways And they ve reached the point in their studies where theory should ideally give way to practice, so an influx of uninvited visitors comes as a blessing to the faculty.And yes, this story is a comedy Albeit a dark one.For the first time in his career, Jason has enlisted a writer Fabien Vehlmann Vehlmann has written a number of graphic novels for the French and American markets, including an installment of the legendary Spirou series and the three volume Green Manor continuity, of which two volumes have been released in English Vehlmann has managed to interiorize Jason s deadpan style and wit perfectly, creating a uniquely smooth and successful collaboration.. Popular Ebook Isle of 100,000 Graves A quirky little book filled with deadpan, gallows humor. Gwenny finds a treasure map in a bottle and talks some pirates into taking her on a hunt for the treasure while looking for her Dad who found a similar map 5 years ago. What they find on the island is much different. Often humorous with a dry wit aged like a fine wine.
