Catacomb City 1 & 2 by Hilary Wagner, publisher Albin Michel

Haven't had a chance to post in a while so here are a couple of posts:

Above is the Artwork for Hilary Wagners 'Catacomb City 1 & 2 publishing by Albin Michel (in France).
Was quite cool to do the artwork in circular vignettes as haven't done that before and also cool to draw rats!

Plot synopsis:

Deep beneath a modern metropolis lies the Catacombs, a kingdom of remarkable rats of superior intellect. Following the Bloody Coup, the once peaceful democracy has become a dictatorship, ruled by decadent High Minister Killdeer and his vicious henchman Billycan, a former lab rat with a fondness for butchery. 

Three young orphan rats--brothers Vincent and Victor and a clever female named Clover--join forces with Billycan's archenemy, Juniper, and his maverick band of rebel rats as they plot to overthrow their oppressors and create a new city--Nightshade City. This impossible-to-put-down fantasy explores timeless themes of freedom, forgiveness, the bonds of family, and the power of love.

They don't have a publisher in England (as far as I know), but if you can speak french you can pick up the first one from here and the second one from here.
