WILLIAM VANCE XIII For Maria (T.9), Dargaud 1992 Original plate n°14, prepublished in Hello BD n°154 of September 1st, 1992. Signed. India ink and white gouache highlights on paper 44.8 × 60.8 cm (17.64 × 23.94 in.) In this album, XIII is sent to Costa Verde, a country that does not exist but whose name is that of the Spanish province where Vance lived. The latter had asked Van Hamme to find some Hispanic atmosphere, hence this South American episode. A new woman appears in the life of XIII the amnesiac: Maria, with whom we discover that he is married! Obviously, he does not remember. But this Maria is a revolutionary who is about to become the president of the country, and XIII, under the name of El Cascador, the mythical figure of the revolution. A new identity that adds to the others. Amazing plate of Vance, perfectly cut, with inking and effects of matter always remarkable.
