The Corsairs of Alcibiades
Résumé des tomes
Tome 1 : The scene is early nineteenth century England, in a secret and exclusive university under the auspices of the British Crown. Peter, Lydia, Mike, Curtis, and Maryline, five young people with nothing in common, have been brought together here to take part in the admissions process of this most unusual school. Why were they chosen? And to what end? None of them realize yet that they will soon leave behind their relatively calm lives for untold adventures that lie ahead of them.
Tome 2 : In 1825, Five young people are recruited by the Alcibiades organization, a secret society working for the British Crown. They are tasked with finding and recovering lost treasures around the world in order to fund the organization. Their first mission will also be their final exam: they are to embark on the high seas in search of a fabulous, sunken treasure. However, barely out of port, they find their quest threatened by a mysterious and powerful rival of the organization. The two crews thus begin a no-holds-barred, high-speed chase across the water.
Tome 3 : In 1826, Curtis, Maryline, Mike, Peter, and Lydia, five elite recoverers recruited by the top-secret Alcibiades organization, travel to Venice and Paris in search of the last clues they need to lead them to a treasure buried in the Arctic Circle. They find themselves in another battle of wits, racing against their rival, Edinger, and being pursued by a mysterious and well-armed Frenchman. All three crews are heading towards a hostile, icy terrain that holds a terrifying secret. The price of pulling off this mission runs the risk of being terribly high...
Tome 4 : It is the early 19th century, in England, at the heart of a secret, select university of the British Crown. Following the life and times of five young men and women who manage to form one of the most efficient teams in this secret society despite all odds, Denis-Pierre Filippi pens an adventure saga in the tradition of the novels of Jules Verne. Éric Liberge puts the full force of his talents behind this epic, with every page serving as a testament to his artistic prowess. "Alcibiades" is definitely one of the greatest new adventure series in the world of contemporary comic strips.
Tome 5 : Our elite recovery team is heading for its final confrontation. The power struggle between Alcibiades, the renegade Edinger, the British Crown, France, and the United States will soon spread across the Pacific, from Japan to the Hawaiian Islands. It's time for each member to muster all their technological know-how and win battles on land, at sea, and even in the sky! The time has come for Maryline, Mike, Cynthia, Peter, and Lydia to show which side they're on. Between loyalty and treachery, no one will emerge unscathed.
