They stole his ancestral lands of Mornemont, leaving him only the walls that subdivided them… Now poor half-mad Arthur There spends his days and nights atop these walls, eking out a meager living by charging gate tolls to those who have defrauded him, while plotting to regain his property. But little does he know that world-changing events in faraway Paris are about to spill over into his world…

Sprawling, slyly funny, sardonically satirical, and sumptuously drawn, Tardi and Jean-Claude Forest’s You Are There was hailed as a groundbreaking graphic novel upon its release forty years ago and remains as fresh, unique, and provocative as the day it was drawn.
