The “Super Agent Jon Le Bon!” series is presently comprised of five volumes and was originally published in French. These bestselling Canadian graphic novels are written and illustrated by comic artist Alex A. Book 5, Time Travel Fridge, follows Jon Le Bon as he travels back in time at the request of the President. The President’s daughter is missing in the Stone Age where a creature called the “Entity” is also on the loose as a result of an experiment gone wrong. Le Bon is a member of “The Agency”, a top secret group of misfit characters (Big Beaver, Mr Shorthand, Agent WXT) who, with a unique cadre of inventions, are seeking to save the planet from self-destruction. Armed with a water gun, a nuclear watch and a portable hang glider, Le Bon travels back 200, 000 years, saves the President’s daughter, destroys the Entity, and takes down her corrupt father, all with a smile and a wink.
The “Jon Le Bon “series is a perfect addition to the growing Canadian English language graphic novel market. Readers interested in a humourous, action packed story with characters and scenarios pulled straight from video games and spy movies will not be disappointed.
