Synopsis

Set in Medieval France during the Hundred Years War, Joan is the story of Emil, a young woman raised as a man by Baudricourt, the same person who took Joan of Arc under his wing. Guided by visions of La Pucelle (the name given to Jeanne by followers), Emil seeks to unite France under the divine rule of the King. In her quest, Emil goes to the same places Joan had traveled through, and gains her own followers in the process. However, Emil is opposed by the Dauphin Louis, a brute enforcer who fears no divine power and wishes to make his own bid to rule the country.

Background

Jeanne was published in English by ComicsOne as Joan from October 22 to November 1, 2001.

The main character is Emil, a girl named Emily who was raised as a boy to hide her from her father's family, who wanted to kill her. Since she was a child, Emil has seen visions of Joan of Arc.

From that time, Emil's story parallels Joan's, as Emil struggles to read more
