Le château des étoiles “Castle in the Stars”
The year is 1868. Aeronaut Claire Dulac disappears in a daring high-altitude ballon flight. A year later her husband, engineer Archibald Dulac, and her son Séraphin receive an anonymous letter : someone has recovered Claire’s flight log, and promises stunning revelations… The pair travel to Bavaria where they discover that a secret space program has started in king Ludwig’s own castle. His goal: to send men into space before 1870!
I’ve read it this week and I had a HUGE crush for this comics. The universe is beautiful, based on the “fantasy-science” of the XIX century (Jules vernes, Melies etc). In this world, Ether exists and dreams about space conquest are possible.
The characters are great and appealing, dialogues full of repartee. The adventure is fun and marvellous, as for children and adults. Miyazaki inspiration is undeniable, but it has really it own story and personnal touch. I hope only one thing now: to see this in an animated movie ! It deserves it !
For the moment, It was relased only in france this month, but this author has already published comics in other countries, so there is a chance this one will be available soon at least in english.

Every now and then I need to remind myself of this. We all can be that other person.
I search a composition for the cover of my comic “Wen, Red chronicle”…
What’s your favorite ?
1- “Pfff… more than 200 steps and we arrived.”
2- “Oh no… Reassure me : I’m not a Firebug ?!”
3- “Yeaaah… I’m a lovely slacker !”
4-“Damn ! I was stopped !”
5- Composition with all characters.
6- “All must burn !”
Akin to an eagle
how Kalinga women are tough, proud, and dance like a soaring eagle who looks down on earth.

First look of Popeye/ CG animation test
The animation starts at 2:00. The opening is pretty interesting to listen to as well.
The movements. Sooooo cartoony!! Whoever rigged those characters knows magic or something.
