Is one of the five Campton children really the champion of Evil?

In the arenas, the Campton kids have won their ‘citizenship’ of the In-Between-World’s strange society. Now free to come and go as they please, they’ve left town for the mountains, following Dodzi without really knowing why. When the young boy explains to them that he is in fact trying to discover whether he is the herald of Evil – the Midnight Child – a violent dispute ensues. Meanwhile, hidden nearby, the soldiers of the First Families await an opportunity to attack...


Key Points:
  • A story that works on two levels: the tale of the children's adventures will have younger readers thoroughly entertained, while the oppressive atmosphere and fascinating mystery will captivate older readers
  • An expressive, refined style with a very energetic layout
  • By the author of Green Manor
  • The series has obtained the 9-12 Youth Prize at the prestigious Angoulême Festival twice, along with two Top Awards from Le journal de Mickey

'The Vanishing is such a good beginning, focused, a comic that kids will absolutely love with adventure and intrigue, and 5 great characters to get behind. This first volume sets the tone firmly - smart drama with the potential to go in a variety of directions ...' Zainab Akhtar [Comics & Cola]

Fabien Vehlmann got into comics by flooding Spirou Magazine with proposed scripts until he was accepted. Since then he’s proven his mettle with such hits as Green Manor and a Spirou one-off, before becoming in 2009 the new official team for Dupuis’ flagship series with Yoann. His biggest hit is award winning series Alone, illustrated by Bruno Gazzotti. Gazzotti started by doing odd jobs at Spirou Magazine, eventually becoming Tome and Janry’s assistant on Little Spirou. In 1990 he takes over the art on SODA, a highly successful series that will make him a household name.
