The series premiered in
This is the ongoing story
of a wandering knight in the 11th century Europe,
Sir Aymar de Bois-Maury, who tries to reclaim his
ancestral home. The albums have impressive epic
and rather realistic qualities, although the
overall subject 'prescribes' an abundance of
violent and deadly scenes. Still, Hermann manages
to also include human feelings and considerations.
The title Les Tours de Bois-Maury
means The Towers of Maury Forest in English, but
some of the series is also published as simply Bois-Maury.
