Percevan is a French comic drawn by Philippe Luguy, and written by Jean Léturgie and Xavier Fauche, first pre-published in the french prepublication magazine Gomme ! in 1981. The adventures take place in a medieval world where magic plays an important part. The series is more mature and darker than one might think at first sight in view of the round design of Luguy.
