Giant - Volume 1 - Mikaël

Mikaël (drawings_by)


March 1932, New York. Dan Shackelton is an Irish migrant. Like many of his fellow countrymen, he has found work on the construction site of the Rockefeller Center. He is to replace Ryan Murphy, a worker who died on the site. Dan works with a quiet, broad-shouldered man named Giant who is in charge of informing Ryan Murphy's family of the news. But Giant decides not to say anything. Instead, he sends a substantial sum of money accompanied by an unsigned, typewritten letter. When he receives a response from Ryan's widow, Mary Ann, Giant writes to her again, tangling himself up in a web of lies. Little by little, the enigmatic Giant starts to come out of his shell, until one day, when Mary Ann shows up in New York with her two children, ready to join her husband.

Biographie de Mikaël

French-Canadian artist and author Mikaël has been involved in the comics scene since 2001. Self-taught, he has published numerous titles for younger readers as writer, illustrator, and colorist. He has also illustrated many children's books, with a very recognizable graphic style, full of color and nuance. In 2010 Mikaël received special mention in France for the Prix d'Ouessant in the youth category for "Félice et le flamboyant bleu" (published by PLB), and twice won the Grand Prix of the city of Quebec for volumes two and three of his series "Promise" with publisher Glénat (2015-2016). Since 2006, Mikaël has also been working on stories geared toward adult readers, with more realistic artwork, both solo and in tandem with other authors and artists. In this vein, publisher Dargaud in 2017 published volume one of the remarkable "Giant," a two-part series that takes place in New York in the 1930s (published in English by Europe Comics), with part two being released in 2018. His most recent work is "Bootblack" (Dargaud/Europe Comics), taking place once more in New York City in the years leading up to World War II.
