Inaugurating a new format: 2 stories in one thick book! In a remarkably poignant and topical story, Navee is pressed into service against a group of terrorists bombing at random throughout Wake! The group is an oppressed neglected people whose anger is beyond cooling but the victims they make are innocent... In the second story, agents from Wake on mission on Hurumaru, a planet in medieval stage, are giving no sign of life. Navee, Bobo and three other special agents are sent to find them. They arrive in the middle of a war of liberation of the Escots. Lead by Princess Moneva, the rebels are summarily executing all who carry the logo of Wake: the sign of the demons!

Bessadi and V. Trannoy at Editions Soleil since 2000, "Sept secondes" for G. Paret at Delcourt, "N?vis" with Munuera at Delcourt in 2004. Morvan's style is an easy mix of classic sci-fi, unbridled heroic fantasy, surprising characters with fantastic powers, an intense rhythm of successive adventures and outrageous humor. The space opera "Sillage" which he launched in 1998 with Philippe Buchet, has been both a critical and commercial success. Philippe Buchet nacio en Juniville en los Ardens.
