The third and last volume of Nils, "a trilogy halfway between Nordic mythology and Miyazaki." Art and color by Antoine Carrion (artist of Temudjin).
From the publisher:
According to old legends, there is a world beyond matter. A world made of luminous beings - the elementals - without which this matter would remain inert. So when the once fertile and flourishing northern territories are turning into arid lands where nothing grows, these legends are resurfacing. A young boy in the prime of life, Nils now holds the power of teleportation and omniscience. The spirit of the goddess Verdandi guides him, hoping that he will save the nine worlds from the anger of the goddess Skuld, her sister. After a merciless struggle, the destiny of humanity seems sealed... Does Skuld realize that her behavior is ultimately little different from that of men? Action and metaphysics collide in this beautiful conclusive volume. Antoine Carrion, previously working in video games and illustration, draws his influences from artists as Nicolas de Crecy, Milo Manara, Katsuhiro Otomo, Katsuya Terada and Sergio Toppi.
