From the publisher:
Michel Durand's masterpiece!
Blinded by the pox, the commander Masquelier runs his whaling ship The Belespoir. And it is always with despotism he leads his crew in pursuit of his evil whim: spermaceti, this precious material extracted from the remains of whales that allows him to keep his manhood. Can his men continue to blindly follow him?
Each image is an intense experience. Between rough seas and rendering scenes, Michel Durand delivers a psychotic and iconoclastic vision of these marine slaughterhouses of the XIX th century. This is the second and final part of a dive in the hellish lives of these convicts serving the industrial revolution ...
The first volume won the Prix Découverte au festival de la BD d'Ajaccio 2013 (Discovery Award at the festival of comics Ajaccio 2013).
