The year is 2025, and Herakles Nikopol has returned to Earth following a 30 year exile in cryostasis. The Paris he lands in, however, is not the one he left. In his absence, the Gods of Egypt have returned to reassert their dominance over the human race.
One God in particular, the renegade Horus, has great plans he can only carry out with the help, unwilling though it may be, of Nikopol himself. Together they embark on a wild adventure that involves politics, intrigue, love… and a brutal, blood-soaked, hockey game.
This brand new collected edition of The Nikopol Trilogy presents in full the brilliance, humor and stunning artwork of Enki Bilal's iconic masterpiece.
Enki Bilal was born in the former Yugoslavia in 1951. His Belgrade childhood, during the reign of Tito, was instrumental in setting the tone and geopolitical themes he developed during his collaborations (with Pierre Christin in particular) and in his solo work.
