Biggles - Titans du pacifique

Here's another of the French graphic novels that I don't think we've discussed before. I have certainly never seen it before:

If your French is better than mine, perhaps you can read the description and see if it's a recognizable story or if it's a new creation.

"That's better."

There is no description of the story, KK. The blurb is about posting and invoicing. However if you put the title of the book into Google there are quite a few entries on the 'Biggles presents series. This book is number 7.

I can't be sure without seeing it but I think this book is part of a series on the lines of 'Biggles recounts the Battle of Britain', where the story isn't about Biggles but they are using him as a sort of narrator.

I know the topic is getting old, but I can confirm what Fairblue said. It is part of the "Biggles présente" series, historical facts/characters introduced by Biggles.

Topics can never get old on this forum, Marinette. We've had topics revived after a few years.

But thank you for confirming what I thought. It's nice to know my French isn't too rusty.
