Maurice Tillieux has his fans, and understandably so: he is probably the most successful synthesis of the Belgian schools of Brussels and Marcinelle. Between documentary precision and fantasy, Tillieux develops a world of detective stories, sometimes a little fantastic, populated by small-time crooks and happy fools. But he is above all a master of atmosphere, so much so that when it is necessary to draw, as here, a slightly sticky rainy landscape, professional scriptwriters, when explaining it to their draftsman, often evoke an atmosphere "à la Tillieux".
