Résumé

If you think you've already read everything and nothing can surprise you anymore, then you need to go back to the source of the comic book. The authentic naïve adventure feuilletons of the late 19th century. The time of the first car, the invention of photography, but also the time of the magical journeys of Jules Verne. Equally authentic were the adventures of Docteur Mystère and his assistant Cigale. In Milan they unravel the mysterious disappearance of Lady B***'s husband. Because the case seems to be closely linked to the disappearance of a Chinese fighter, Dr. Mystère decides to enlist his old Chinese friend Kway. "Milanese Mysteries" is hilarious camp. Expect encounters with operatic haunts, spying rats, Oliver Twist robot armies and humpbacks at Milan's Dom. All authentic, of course. Unlike other stiff harkenstrips like Blake and Mortimer or Harry Dickson, Doctor Mystère is one hundred percent socially incorrect. Cigale's only task is to catch the ever-fainting Lady B***.

T2 Docteur Mystère

(1)

The famous stiff rakes, Docteur Mystère and his heroic assistant Cigale, are shot at the moon in a cave projectile. First, they'll set foot on it. But on board, they're stuck with a stowaway. The handsome Lady Rowena is looking for her missing fiance who she knows is on the moon. Oermacho Mystère decides not to defy this woman's logic because on the moon a welcome committee of strange creatures awaits them. A little further on, by a red-and-white checkered rocket, lies the corpse of a white fox terrier. The drawings are a true tribute to the naïve adventure tones of the early 20th century, and seem to have run away from Jules Vernes adventure books. A smiling moon, false perspectives, the main characters that Blake and Mortimer-wise always and everywhere keep their composure and phlegma,... make the strip seem wonderfully dated. The contrast with the bone-dry humour and the many persiflages (Star Wars, Alien, Mars Attacks, Star Trek, Goldorak,...) is all the stronger. But despite this crassness, The War of the Worlds remains a very consistent story full of brilliant dialogues.
