Synopsis

The Chase by Bastien Vives, Michael Sanlaville, Balak

Richard Aldana, the mysterious stranger who entered the Games in the first volume of Last Man, continues to defeat all of his competitors, despite his outlandish refusal to use any magic, and to rely solely on martial arts. With young Adrian fighting at his side, he's beginning to look like a likely contender for the Royal Cup. But in a breathtaking twist, everything changes: this world is not what you thought it was, and Richard Aldana is certainly not who he claimed. With the same fast-paced, action-oriented storytelling and gorgeous art as The Stranger, the third volume of Last Man changes all the rules, and will leave readers eagerly awaiting Book 4!

Reviews

Vives rough-hewn but flowing art still gives the manga-influenced book a distinctive visual flavor. Booklist
