A heady perfume of blood and rage across the stars featuring Philippe Druillet's legendary Lone Sloane. In the third century BC- mercenaries employed by Carthage during the first Punic War rose against their employers- who repeatedly postponed their pay. Two barbarian clan chiefs- Matho and Narr'Havas- fell in love with the beautiful and ethereal Salammbo- daughter of Hamilcar of Carthage. A bloody conflict arose. Based on the 19th century novel by Flaubert- Salammbo was reappropriated and recontextualised by Druillet in this masterwork. Transposing the ancient Punic Wars into his space fantasy universe- and splicing the identity of the novel's Mathô with his favorite character- Lone Sloane- Druillet works his intoxicatingly psychedelic magic on a literary classic- reinvigorating it from the inside out with his own transcendent storytelling.
