Casterman recently published a new album in the 'Voyages d'Alix' series, dedicated to ancient Babylon!

Jacques Martin's hero Alix guides us through the city, with its Hanging Gardens, colorful Ishtar Gate, impressive temples and palaces... But we also get the opportunity to visit ancient Assur, Khorsabad and Ninive.

The very detailed drawings by the hand of Jean-Marie Ruffieux and the accompanying texts by art historian Anne Deckers make it all come to life.
And as the proverbial icing on the cake, we are treated to an enthusiastic preface by our own Eric Gubel!
