A Frenchman on Mars is the fourth volume in a lavishly illustrated graphic novel series set in a world where space exploration began during the Victorian era.

As Seraphin, Hans, and Sophie make their descent to the Mars surface—with stowaway Loïc and the wicked Gudden in tow—they’re prepared for danger. But with its gravity-defying rain and giant carnivorous beasts, Mars is even more treacherous than they expected. When Seraphin suddenly finds himself separated from his friends and alone in the Martian wilderness, he must trust a mysterious shape-shifting creature to guide him back to safety. But this creature has an agenda of their own.

Alex Alice

Alex Alice is a French graphic novelist whose works have been translated into more than fifteen languages. While traveling around Europe he developed a lifelong passion for the ruins and castles of the medieval and romantic ages. This experience influenced his art, from his esoteric thriller The Third Testament (co-written with Xavier Dorison) to Siegfried, an operatic retelling of the northern saga of the great dragon slayer. In Castle in the Stars, he draws on Jules Verne and nineteenth-century romanticism to create a watercolor world of adventure and wonder to enchant adults and younger readers alike.
