WILLIAM VANCE XIII The Day of the Black Sun (T.1), Dargaud 1984 Original plate n° 32, prepublished in Le Journal de Spirou n° 1410 of June 21, 1984 India ink on paper. Signed. 35.3 × 49.3 cm (13.90 × 19.41 in.) With a plate like this one, we understand why why the amnesiac with the grey temple has immediately established himself as one of the most charismatic characters in the the Franco-Belgian comic strip. Everything in this sequence condemns the hero: he is stuck in the small room of a room of a one-eyed hotel with no less than five killers on his tail. He naturally escapes, leaving one suitcase out of two. Of course, the one he took with him contains the windfall of dollars, the price of his freedom. It takes all the talent all the talent of a Vance to direct an action scene with such an economy of means. Vance and Van Hamme, the dream team! One of the rare times I had to ask Vance to correct a drawing; he had forgotten the briefcase with the money on the bed. Jean Van Hamme
