The third volume in the lavishly illustrated series of wildlife graphic novels, each following a single central animal through an adventurous day in their natural environment. This exciting tale, written by Frederic Brremaud, is told without narration or dialogue, conveyed entirely through the beautiful illustrations of Federico Bertolucci. Both heartwarming and heartbreaking, this volume focuses on a solitary Lion as it wanders the plains of Africa, handling the daily hunt, and vicious rivalry, without a Pride of its own. The circle of Life takes center stage in a world where predator and prey trade places on a regular basis, and Family is something worth fighting - and dying - for.

    Brrmaud and Bertolucci are modern masters manipulating the medium to their will. The end result is a breathtaking thing of beauty, a series with limitless potential and wild unpredictability. For fans of comics, this is the art form at a near-pure state. For fans of nature shows and movies, this is a storyboard for a never-released documentary, lush with gorgeous, violent, earnest imagery. For fans of both, Love: The Lion is a must-have.
