|Entitled "Chasseurs de Dragons"
DRAGON HUNTERS is a fantastic tale of medieval inspiration that takes place in some very distant future.
Centuries have gone by...
Our beloved, former civilization, swept away by the tides of chaos, is but a murky memory...the world has become a vast conglomerate of islands of varying size and shape. Each one has a distinct climate and geography. They are in perpetual movement and are linked up by hanging bridges that are as archaic as they are precarious. Human history has painfully continued its course, along the rocky trail of a brutal, contrasted, unstable, toiling, ignorant and medieval world, inclined towards the most foolish of beliefs. This babbling universe is mainly peopled with ruthless rogues, surly peasants and illiterate, petty lords.
Their main concerns revolve around two fundamental rules : Eat and don't get eaten. For this new world has become infested with a terrible plague: omnipresent, monstrously famished, mutant creatures, are wreaking havoc. They are known as : THE dragons
The dragons have infested every nook and cranny of the world. They are a multitude of infinitely reproducing species, each of them terribly dangerous. They devour sheep and children, ravage the harvest, blow their noses in trees, kick villages down, defecate on the roads and wipe their humongous butts along peaceful country lanes (those lanes with grass growing on them!)
According to the good old law of supply and demand, the dragon-hunting trade has become a skill essential to the survival of the human species. But noble knights perfected in the art of the saber are rare indeed, and given the inherent danger in this job, men are not knocking down the door for useful employment.
Our series will follow the wild adventures of LIAN CHU and GWIZDO, two inseparable dragon hunting friends. They do not practice their trade for reasons of beauty or posterity, but rather for prosperity.
