Moscow, September 17th, 1904. A crowd, brandishing sticks, stones and rotten vegetables, gathers in the forecourt of the palace of Moscow's Governor. They're not happy. The state of their country and their standard of living is rapidly becoming intolerable. Up on the balcony, Governor Sergei Alexandrovitch drops his handkerchief... Was it intentional? Or a tragic accident? Whatever the case may be, it's the signal: the soldiers open fire on the crowd. In an explosive political context, where the people are gathering together in the fight against an autocratic regime, this unfortunate event is nothing short of a death sentence for the Governor of Moscow...

  • Né en 1976, Fabien Nury démarre sa carrière en signant, avec Xavier Dorison, le scénario de "W.E.S.T" (Dargaud), série à succès dessinée par Christian Rossi (Dargaud, six tomes entre 2003 et 2011). En solo, Fabien Nury écrit "Je suis Légion" (2004-2007, Humanoïdes associés), une trilogie mise en images par l'Américain John Cassaday. La série, traduite en huit langues, se poursuit avec plusieurs dessinateurs sous le titre "Les chroniques de Légion" (Glénat). En 2007, il commence aussi "Le maître de Benson Gate" (Dargaud), avec Renaud Garreta. De 2007 à 2012, Nury scénarise les six tomes d'"Il était une fois en France" (Glénat), série historique qui, dessinée par Sylvain Vallée, obtient un immense succès public (850 000 exemplaires vendus) et critique. Entre autres récompenses, Il était une fois en France reçoit en 2011 le prix de la meilleure série au Festival international de la BD d'Angoulême. Depuis, Fabien Nury enchaîne les succès dans des genres variés : le récit historique, avec le diptyque "La mort de Staline" (Dargaud, dessin de Thierry Robin), dont une adaptation au cinéma devrait voir le jour en 2017; le thriller, avec "Steve Rowland", tome 5 de la collection "XIII Mystery" (Dargaud, dessin de Richard Guérineau) ; le feuilleton policier, avec "Silas Corey" (Glénat, dessin de Pierre Alary) ; l'adaptation littéraire, avec "Atar Gull" (Dargaud, dessin de Brüno), d'après Eugène Sue, ... En 2013, il crée, avec Brüno, "Tyler Cross", un roman noir en BD. L'album est plébiscité par la critique et les lecteurs (plus de 50 000 exemplaires vendus). Le tome 2 paraît en 2015. En 2014, Fabien Nury publie le quatrième et dernier tome de "L'or et le sang" (Glénat), avec Maurin Defrance au scénario, Merwan et Fabien Bedouel au dessin ainsi que le premier volet du diptyque "Mort au tsar !" (Dargaud), avec Thierry Robin, dont le deuxième tome sort en 2015.
