After Révélations posthumes
I had prepared a new project for (A Suivre)
It was a rather long story of 120 pages. They refused it at (A Suivre)
I didn't continue it then. It was a somewhat fantastic story,
something better suited for Tintin/Hello BD (fr); Kuifje (nl)
So they were quite right for not wanting it. In the meanwhile I had
left Tintin/Hello BD (fr); Kuifje (nl)
and was suddenly out of work.
Luckily my friend Antonio Cossu
was in charge of a new series of
black-and-white comics at Deligne (Michel)
. Then I said to him:
"I want to do something for you." I knew Deligne,
because he had published one of my stories from my time at Saint-Luc,
four plates based on a story by Jean Ray. Deligne was interested in my offer
and paid me - for that time - extremely well. He paid more than Tintin.
During the making of Cromwell Stone I moved to Brittany.
I wrote it in Paris, I drew it in Bretagne.
