MAURICE TILLIEUX GIL JOURDAN Chaud et Froid - Le Grand Souffle (T.11), Dupuis 1969 Original plate no. 14, prepublished in Le Journal de Spirou no. 1559 February 29, 1968. India ink on paper 31 × 42 cm (12.2 × 16.54 in.) Tillieux's work is highly effective.

Then there's the way the circumstances are set up: once the suspicion of the protagonists, who have taken refuge in a bow window to keep their conversation confidential, has been exposed, the hero literally falls on them. This leads to one of Tillieux's signature lines: "If I felt like it, I'd laugh. Only he could come up with that, and give a Light Suspense story such depth.
