About the Author
Sylvain Runberg, born in 1971, divides his time between Stockholm, Provence, and Paris. He has a diploma in Plastic Arts and an MA in Political History. Before he started writing, Runberg worked for publishing house Humanoides Associés, as the editor for Moebius & Enki Bilal, among others. His first book was launched in 2004 and since then Sylvain Runberg has had more than 50 books published by the largest French publishers (Glénat, Le Lombard, Dupuis, Dargaud, Casterman, Soleil, Futuropolis) and is now translated into 15 languages, having sold in total over 1 million copies worldwide. Very quickly recognized as one of the most talented writers of his generation, Sylvain Runberg is characterized by the variety of the worlds that he creates: space opera (Orbital, Warship Jolly Roger), speculative fiction (Drones [Le Lombard/Europe Comics]), psychological thrillers (Cases Blanches, Face Cachée, of which the first volume was awarded the Silver Prize of the 4th International Manga Awards in Tokyo), horror (Sonar), historical adventures tinged with fantasy (Darwin’s Diaries [Le Lombard/Cinebook], Conquests [Le Lombard/Europe Comics], Hammerfall), dark fantasy, crime stories (Motorcity[Dargaud/Europe Comics], Interpol: Stockholm [Dupuis/Europe Comics]), and political thrillers, all characterized by his realistic style. Runberg has also adapted the Stieg Larsson.

Whoever thought someone would actually name any type of spaceship or vehicle, “Jolly Roger.” But I’m not here to criticize the name choose for a starship. I have enjoyed this book very well.
Volume two is about Munro getting revenge for the death of his son. This graphic novel is action action packed.
