ULTRA BD : What is it ? Who are we ?

The « UltraBD » project is a French Comic Strip launched at the end of 2017 thanks to the crowdfunding of trail runners, friends and anonymous people who support artistic creation.
The theme of the first album « Grand Raid Reunion Island / La diagonale des fous » is a legendary running race which consists of crossing the island from south to north (100 miles) in less than 66 hours.

The author participated three times in this adventure to image this great sporting event and share it with you. The scenario being embellished with the sublime landscapes of Reunion, this comic strip is aimed at a very large audience: whether you are a runner, a volunteer, a runner’s spouse, a friend or an amateur of challenges and nature , you can live or relive the course through four main characters in search of the ultimate reward … the yellow finisher T-shirt marked « I survived ».

Administratively, UltraBD is a small compagny specifically created to produce, edit and distribute the album. There is no commercial objective in itself even if we hope to sell enough albums to enter our costs … If we exceed the objectives, the profits will be used to produce a second volume.
