La Route de Coronado (T.11), Dupuis 1962
Original plate no. 28, prepublished in Le Journal de Spirou no. 1205, May 18, 1961.
Panel no. 3 was produced on a separate support affixed to the original. India ink on paper
31.8 × 43.6 cm (12.52 × 17.17 in.)
This well-paced story, scripted by Jijé's son Philip, was inked by Gir, a helping hand that Jijé would return to Jean Giraud a few years later when he, in turn, was stuck with deadlines. In this scene, a ranch is set on fire by Silver, a half-breed of white man and Yaqui Indian with dubious associations. His motive has a name: the treasure of the conquistadors! The Jerry Spring and Pancho duo is well established. This story is even more characteristic of the Mexican sidekick, who turns out to be a tracker at least equal to an Indian.
