En 1894, Raoul d’Andrésy, futur Arsène Lupin qui préfère le nom de sa mère "plus honorable" que celui de son père Lupin, ancien professeur de gymnastique et voleur, a 20 ans et il est amoureux de Clarisse d'Estrigues, mais il essuie un refus de la part du père de Clarisse. Pour se venger il décide de cambrioler son futur-beau-père Comme d'autres auteurs, Simenon avec "La première enquête de Maigret" publié 10 ans après la création du personnage, Leblanc décide de raconter comment Raoul d'Andrésy est devenu Arsène Lupin et éclaire certains aspects du personnages ; son insolence et son intelligence sont déjà présent. Suivi de « La Cagliostro se venge » Nous sommes dans les années 1920 (26 ans après l'épilogue de la "comtesse de Cagliostro"). On retrouve donc Raoul de Limezy - Arsène Lupin - en train de suivre un homme qui semble frauder le fisc en planquant une partie de ses revenus et comme voler un voleur n'est pas pour Raoul un crime, il décide d'acheter une maison mise en vente par son "client" et devient vite un familier de la maison...

The Folies Bergère
Publisher: Europe Comics
We're right in the middle of World War I, deep in the trenches. The soldiers are confronted by unimaginable suffering and violent death on a daily basis. Considered as nothing more than cannon fodder by their superiors, they try desperately to survive. Partly as an act of defiance in the face of hardship, partly as the ultimate irony, the soldiers nickname their regiment after the famous Parisian cabaret club 'Folies Bergère'. They laugh and joke, they write, they draw, they fight, they die in appalling circumstances, they kill themselves, they lose their minds. And then one of their number is sentenced to death by firing squad... and miraculously survives...

The owner of the bookshop THE VERB TO BE, is a red-haired giant imprisoned in an enormous body and his solitude. One wet afternoon, driving a vanload of new and second-hand books, �tienneVollard knocks down and seriously injures a little girl, �va. In the hospital, he meets �va's mother, Th�r�se, a struggling single parent who lacks maternal instincts and whose dream is to be faraway, alone. Both are haunted by guilt: Th�r�se because of her lateness in collecting her daughter, and Vollard because he did not manage to stop his car on time (even if he knows that he could not have avoided -va: indeed she seemed to throw herself in front of the car). Vollard visits �va regularly while she is in a coma and reads books to her, while Th�r�se spaces her visits out. When �va eventually wakes up, she has become mute and is terribly weakened. A few weeks after �va has been sent to a rehabilitation centre in the Massif de la Chartreuse, Th�r�se gets a job faraway and asks Vollard to visit her daughter on her behalf. Soon, Vollard enjoys their walks in the mountain, where he tells her stories and poems he has memorized and tries to break her out of her mute, impassive shell. However, nothing seems to help "La Petite Chartreuse" - Vollard calls �va that way in reference to the monastic order of the Chartreux - to enjoy life again. She becomes weaker everyday to such a point that Vollard decides to find Th�r�se and to take her back to her daughter before it is too late . . .
