The year is 1849, and the future state of California is under the control of former soldiers from the Mexican-American War.

Until one man shows up and starts picking off Gomez's men one by one, as stealthy as a fox. He brandishes a sword which he uses to carve the letter Z into his victims' cheeks... Could this be the true Zorro?

Hematite is a young vampire who is trying to find her way. As a
member of the illustrious Blackwood family, she faces pressure to
conform to high society standards, but such grandstanding isn't for
her. And neither is drinking blood-she'd rather have vegetable soup!

than joining the ranks of her fellow vampires at the Diaemus Academy.
Being different can be hard, though, and doesn't always help to make
friends. Luckily for Hematite, she has her poetry, as well as
Drunela-a draugr who won't let their differences keep them apart-and

take a peek at the Blackwood's private library. Unfortunately,
bridging societal divides isn't always easy, and can lead to terrible

But today, forty years later, the White House decides to get rid of all the mafia bosses left in the country... The great spy adventure continues!
It's the 70s, and Floyd Whitman, a young and idealistic CIA agent manages to get in with the Russian mafia, at last seeing an opportunity to strike at the heart of the communist regime. So, with the CIA's backing, he's going to launch a huge secret operation to help the worst of the Soviet mafia in their cause. This third volume kicks off in present-day America with the arrival of a squad of ex-KGB assassins, whose aim is to get rid of Whitman's old accomplices, under authorization of the American secret services.
While ex-KGB assassins make their way to the United States, Floyd Whitman is in hiding, waiting for a secret operation to kick off. In the meantime, he takes a trip down memory lane, as he mulls over his life as a secret agent tracking the Russian mafia. But that's not all. He's also thinking about an old flame, Lovna. This is a ruthless thriller about the corrupt American empire that also gives an exciting glimpse of the mysteries of the Cold War. Black OP has become the cult spy series of the Franco-Belgian Comic scene.
In this final installment of the series that reinvented comic book spy stories, Operation Clean Up has begun. The Vice President and the CIA have launched a secret war against members of the Russian mafia based in the United States. Nothing can stop them now. Except for the one man who really knows what's at stake with this operation, and the murky alliances of the past. It's game over for the survivors of the Cold War, and the final mission for Floyd Whitman. Time to finally reveal the truth. And maybe save the woman he once loved?
It's 1945. Floyd Whitman discovers that 'those scumbag communists' have killed his father. He's just a child, but he resolves to one day join the CIA. By 2003, America has triumphed over the Soviet Union, but the Russian mafia has become the most powerful, and certainly the most violent criminal group throughout the whole country. Through the fate of one man--young and full of illusions in 1965, but rather more embittered in 2003--we see the CIA help the Russian mafia get back on its feet in the squalid back rooms of the American empire. A great spy adventure comparable with the best of Hollywood thrillers.
