From 1985, this was written by Jean Van Hamme, drawn by Grzegorz Rosinski, translated into English by Chris Tanz and Jean-Paul Bierny. I have three of the albums collecting the Thorgal stories and read them until the covers fell off. So refreshing, the art and storytelling work so well together. It's not much like PRINCE VALIANT, my first thought skimming through the books. The mix of mythology, science fiction and high adventure is just right. I'd recommend any comics fan pick up an album if they see one and see if they don't itch to read the rest.Here's a nerve-stretching sequence with a cruel archery tournament. You don't have to have endless inhabited worlds blown up or cities destroyed by aliens to build suspense, and you don't need page after page of agitated monologues for drama.

ok, so I saw the word "Thorgal" before the picture, and I immediately thought: Thor Gal

sadly, not what I expected

A single issue of Thorgal is allways better than anything Marvel or DC have produced in the last 10 years.

I thought 'Thorgal' referred to a Thor Gal for years myself...But this tournament sucks ass as an archery contest. Inevitably, the better archer would get pincushioned by the worse archer.
