Milander Dean, a sad geologist carrying a family tragedy, arrives to Yulkukany, the lost island of the whale hunters for a research job. There he will find Elianor, a girl who will shake his life with her unstoppable joy , teaching him a lesson about hope and happiness.
"The Island without smile" is a fable, a tale about how to face our own understanding of the joy of life.
This is a very special book, conceibed since the very beggining as a gift for the reader. There are not many comic books out there talking about happiness and with the only pretention of giving the reader a warm feeling after closing the last page of the book.
This book has been translated from French (Glenat Editions 2009) to Spanish, Italian and Swedish.
- COVER RESEARCH-
To find the perfect cover and main title the editor (Benoit Cousin) and I discussed nearly 20 names for the book and 10 illustrations for the cover. Here are some of those tests.
