Ever since he met the lovely Léna, Jeremiah has been trying to lose sight of her: in this story, she reappears on the edge of Indian territory as Géraldine, a hostess in a gambling joint. But that's not the heart of the story. The town is under the rule of a militia in the pay of a corrupt sheriff. This gang of lowlifes have got their hands on a being from outer space and are hoping to sell it to the highest bidder... Do they think for a moment that ET is going to let them get away with it? Admire the bold color combinations on this page. Quickly executed like a tempera painting, Hermann first applies a background, which he then lightly enhances with a warm color. The result is a ghostly atmosphere that fits the story perfectly.
