The Little Prince 15: The Planet of the Gargand

By Vincent Costi
Illustrated by Élyum Studio

The new adventures based on the masterpiece by Antoine de Saint-Exupery.

On Khagle's planet, every 122 days, Khagle (vaguely similar to Santa Claus) hands wishaplants' seeds out to children and inhabitants. The wishaplants grow into trees which give presents to children. But they also ensure the village's survival (because the plants roots' secure the houses to the ground, which without them, would fly off). The problem is that Lyf the alchemist, who grows the seeds into wishaplants according to the children wishes, disappeared 48 hours before the Khagle's distribution.

  • Beloved author, name recognition.
  • Created with respect for the original.
  • Appealing reimagining of the character in a popular contemporary style with crossover appeal to young manga readers (cf. Avatar: The Last Airbender).
