The Games are already underway when Richard Aldana arrives in town. This mysterious stranger seems to have more in common with our world than the world where the Games are held. He smokes cigarettes and wears a leather jacket while everyone else in this medieval realm is casting spells and weaving tapestries. Nobody knows what to make of him, but when Aldana enrolls in the games he quickly becomes a top contender. Eschewing magic and using only his martial arts prowess, Aldana also befriendsand protects a small boy for reasons as mysterious as his origins.

Who will win the games? Who is Richard Aldana, really? And what is the ultimate purpose of this gruelling gladiatorial contest?

With its intricate fantasy setting and heart-pounding action sequences, Last Man has become the smash hit comics series in France. Combining compelling character-driven storytelling with fast-paced adventure, Last Man is an addictive series with a cliffhanger at the end of each volume that leaves readers panting for more.

This first volume of the series is pretty interesting, with a few unnecessary scenes... The nature of the combats are interesting, but the overall topics moving forward in the series make one think of mad-max (at least I think so, I've not seen it) and The Book of Eli: women outside of the valley are all depicted as prostitutes and as for the men, only the strongest or richest survive... mostly the strongest. The police are rapists and the judge decides verdicts by having the attorneys kill each other. The next town they arrive in doesn't seem much better and I stopped reading at volume three.
