Comments
from the article "Rork and the fantastic (1995)":
Did you intend to make it an album from the start?
Andreas: No. They (site-editor: Tintin/Hello BD (fr); Kuifje (nl)'s editors) wanted short stories with the same leading character. Then I thought up the character of Rork, more or less to enable me to tell fantastic stories. With the second story they suddenly said "Make sure that there will be 46 plates eventually." With the third episode they told me "It would be good if the stories were connected." Thus I tried to link the first episodes to the series by reintroducing the main characters.
Did you like that? Or did you find it limiting?
Actually I was quite pleased. When they told me to make 46 plates, I thought: maybe they are going to make an allbum of it, you never know. I like to work with certain restrictions. Only if there are limits can you try to cross them. But they waited with the publication of the album until the very last moment. They had five years the right to publish it and decided to do it only three months before the contract expired. They published it without believing in it and I told myself: "Alright, I quit! It's over!" But later they looked me up, because the first two albums sold pretty well. At least better then they had expected. That's why there is a divide between the first two and the next five albums. At that point I more or less made my own terms: "I want to make long series. I want the stories to be published with short intervals as a whole in the magazine." They accepted all of that. Then they asked me: "Will it really become a series, or will you stop after five albums?" I answered: "Five albums, then I stop." We agreed to let the albums stay in the collection Verhalen en Legenden (FR)
