  "Enter a world at war"


French Alternate History comic book written by Vincent Brugeas and drawn by Ronan Toulhoat. The latter left the series in 2012, Ryan Lovelock will replace him.

World War II kicked off in 1939. Then ...

Adolf Hitler was assassinated in 1941, Heinrich Himmler took over the chancellery, Reinhard Heydrich became Reichsführer of the SS, Berlin was rebuilt following Albert Speer's plans and renamed Germania (much like in Fatherland). The Third Reich conquered Western Europe and most of Africa, launched its Ragnarok program in 1942, and massively nuked the USA and the United Kingdom on may 8th 1945. Operation Barbarossa was launched in 1944 but the forces of USSR proved to be stronger than expected and repelled the German forces. Himmler died in an accident in 1947, he was replaced by his right-hand, an ambitious yet unknown officer whose name is Zytek.

The story of the first album takes place in 1953. The Waffen SS and the New Teutonic Order are desperately struggling against Soviet forces in the city of Marienburg, Pomerania, the bastion of the New Teutonic Order and the last fortress on the path to Berlin. Meanwhile, Zytek follows his own agenda...

The first album was published in a 200 pages small format in 2010, it is simply titled Block 109 and is basically the keystone of The Verse. Four large format albums followed, they're all one-shot stories set in the same universe between 1941 and 1953. Some major characters of the first album do appear at some points:

  • Etoile Rouge (Red Star) - 2010
  • Opération Soleil de Plomb (Operation Leadsun) - 2011
  • New York 1947 - 2011
  • Ritter Germania (Knight Germania) - 2012

A fifth large format album currently titled Shark is in the works and scheduled for April 2013.
