The Towers of Bois-Maury (original French title: Les Tours de Bois-Maury) is a series of graphic novels that begun in 1984 by Belgian comic book creator Hermann.


Set in 11th century Europe, the series concerns the efforts of the wandering noble Sir Aymar de Bois-Maury, knight, to reclaim his ancestral home, Bois-Maury. Less focused on action than the other series of Hermann (like Jeremiah), Les Tours de Bois-Maury deals more with human thoughts and considerations.
