    The comic is presented as the story of the history of Martinique by Ti Gilbè (Gilbert Larose) in a simple and accessible way to all, summarizing some parts and emphasizing on slavery, the way of life of slaves, the marronnage, punishments, abolition. The drawings are made by Jojo Kourtex whose companion was a guide at La Savane des Esclaves. The Arawaks, the Caribbean Indians, the French colonists, the Breton indentured servicemen, the Africans, the Indians: all the history of these peoples who came to live in Martinique, voluntarily or forced, is illustrated in the comic.
