Story time The Hunting Party
There is really an art shift with hunting party.
Bilal was good before, but his current style is awesome, very pure with a lot of volume.
Thanks OP, I hope it will introduce new readers to Enki Bilal.
I like how 50/22 B (the white haired man) role gets reduced progressively in the series. He's almost accessory in the Black Order Brigade, and just gets a cameo here.
Old bolshevik official saw the soviet union and politics corrupt communism, decided to end it by killing the soon-to-be grey eminence of the soviet union, so people and satellite states can take their fates in their own ends. After accomplishing that, he commits suicide and join the love of is life, killed during a stalinian purge, in death.
Basically it's about the warsaw pact.
Also consider the fact that it was made in France, where the comics scene is pretty socialist, before the fall of the Berlin wall.
