कहते हैं दुनिया में लोग अच्छे कर्म करके चले जाते हैं। लेकिन उनके कर्म इसी दुनिया में रह जाते हैं।<br />ऐसे ही एक घटना एक महात्मा की सच्चाई की है। वैसे सुनने वाले तो इसे एक कहानी कहते हैं लेकिन जिन लोगों पर यह बीत चुका है वे इसे सत्य कहते हैं, एकदम सत्य,,,,,<br />उनका मानना है की उनके पास महात्मा द्वारा दी गई एक अद्भुत शक्ति है जिसे उनके सिवा कोई और नहीं जानता है यह शक्तियां अब उनके बच्चों में प्रवेश हो चुकी है क्योंकि जिस के पास ये शक्ति होती है वे जब चाहे अपने पूरे जीवन काल में एक बार अपनी मर्जी से अपनी शक्ति को दूसरे में प्रवेश कर सकते हैं।<br />लेकिन यह शक्ति उसी में प्रवेश होगी जिसे कोई किसी को दिल से अपनी शक्ति देना चाहे। इसलिए उन्होंने अपनी शक्ति अपने बच्चों में प्रवेश कर दिया लेकिन उन्हें कभी अंदाजा भी नहीं लगने दिया कि उनके पास है सारी शक्तियां है

Philadelphie, 1776. Mrs Betsy est dépêchée par les indépendantistes américains pour concevoir le tout premier drapeau des futures nations unies. Sa domestique, Angela Brown, décide alors de transformer cet étendard en un hommage révolutionnaire, en y adjoignant en secret un symbole inestimable...<br /><br />Douvres, 1944. Le soldat Lincoln se morfond dans son camp militaire, entre discriminations raciales et bagarres quotidiennes. Jusqu'à ce qu'il reçoive une lettre de sa soeur, Johanna, annonçant qu'elle a découvert dans les possessions de leur tante décédée les mémoires d'Angela Brown - rien de moins qu'un témoignage d'une rareté et d'une valeur exceptionnelles. Si l'histoire relatée dans ces mémoires est réelle, alors c'est l'histoire des États-Unis qui est à récrire.Sauf que l'emblème américain est aux mains des Allemands nazis, qui l'ont dérobé ainsi que d'innombrables trésors, au cours de leurs pillages. S'ensuit donc la mise en place d'une opération de la plus haute importance, à laquelle participe Lincoln...<br /><br />Quand Yves Sente rencontre Steve Cuzor, c'est la petite histoire et la grande Histoire qui se percutent dans un album aux allures d'épopée. Par l'ampleur de sa narration et la densité de son graphisme, ici sublimé par le noir et blanc du tirage de luxe, Cinq branches de coton noir est d'ores et déjà une oeuvre mémorable.

This is a permafree little book to read instead of the newspaper over your morning coffee. It is not meant to bring profit, but to—hopefully—put a smile on your face.<br /><br />History should not always be so serious. For it is but the record of the public and official acts of human beings. It is our object, therefore, to humanize our history and deal with people past and present; people who ate and possibly drank; people who were born, flourished, and died. And if we cannot laugh at ourselves, then we are condemned to repeat the very same deeds of the past.
