Obscurcia is a horror trilogy. In this middle volume, Alex is a 12 year old in the nightmare world of Obscurcia, making allies, trying to save his friends and fight the big bad.
Steven Dhondt is a Belgian illustrator. Obscurcia is full of wonderful, crazy, energetic action and storytelling reminiscent of Mikael Sanlaville and Le Fleur Vert.
From the publisher:
Obscurcia is the world of Toy Story infected by the nauseating miasma of the evil Clown of It. It is a dreamlike and horrifying universe. It's especially the nightmare Alex has to go through to save his little sister.
Bidibidou claims he can cure poor Laécia but Alex is suspicious of this horrible clown, his sadistic doctor and his slave comforters. The kiki, to whom he has just opened his mouth, is counting on him to save them all and, during an altercation with Bidibidou's robots, Alex discovers new abilities. Will that be enough to change his situation and save his little sister Nina?
