The Night by Philippe Druillet / ISBN 9781785866661 / Titan Comics hardcover reprint / 72 pages, 9.63 x 12.75 inches
Comics master Philippe Druillet muses on death in this psychedelic tale of drug-addled biker gangs battling it out at the end of the world.
In 1975 Philippe Druillet lost his wife Nicole to cancer. He exorcized the demons her death left behind in The Night, a nihilistic story about the inevitable ending that none of us can avoid. Set in a desolate, post-apocalyptic world, The Night follows gangs of dope-addicted bikers on a collision course for a bloody battle for the ultimate "shoot". Desperate, dark, explosive, and violent - The Night is a baroque classic from the master himself.
