Caleb acts as a mediator between the warring factions while dealing with an attack by highly destructive insects called Stilvulls --and he also has to contend with his feelings for charming doctor Kim Vandersel. Meanwhile, Mezoke is on the planet Upssal, trying to appease the Javlodes"--Page 4 of cover

With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority who have allowed the vulnerable, like herself, to suffer abuse and violence. And, on her own, she will plot revenge - against the man who tried to kill her, and the corrupt government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life. Once upon a time, she was a victim.

Kennedy by Sylvain Runberg( Book )

4 editions published between 2016 and 2019 in French and Danish and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

4 juin 1968, Los Angeles. La primaire du Parti Démocrate vient de s'achever. Alors qu'il attend les résultats du scrutin de Californie, Robert F. Kennedy, sénateur américain, s'entretient avec un journaliste pour parler de la dynastie Kennedy, et plus particulièrement du destin de son frère, le président John Fitzgerald Kennedy, brutalement assassiné en 1963 à Dallas. Par sa jeunesse, son charisme, les moments de l'Histoire qu'il a su incarner et sa fin tragique, JFK fait partie des leaders politiques qui sont entrés dans la légende. Construit en flashes-back successifs, cet album retrace tous les grands épisodes de sa carrière politique, dévoilant la façon dont il a révolutionné l'utilisation de l'image présidentielle (omniprésence dans les médias), mais également son apport à la politique intérieure (lutte contre la ségrégation raciale, la pauvreté ...) et extérieure (crises de Cuba, discours de Berlin) de son pays.

Darwin's diaries by Sylvain Runberg( Book )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Graphic Novel. Charles Darwin is known as the Father of Evolution. But his hidden diaries reveal that he studied other, less natural things as well ... Victorian England. In Yorkshire, several men and horses working on a railway line have been killed - slaughtered, really. The police suspect some kind of wild beast. The government calls upon controversial naturalist Charles Darwin to help with the investigation. A reasonable move, but one that is dictated rather by the least known part of his work: research on what other people would qualify as legendary creatures. It won't be long before the scientist discovers that he may be right about them after all
