Description

According to a note by the artist on the backside of another page of the same story it's an adaption of an Alex Raymond story which he did in 1962 at the age of 18.
That's why it's probably the very first story by Druillet known to the public.
In his note Druillet mentions that it was published!
Maybe someone can help me identifying in which magazine it was printed?

About Philippe Druillet

Philippe Druillet ( born June 28, 1944) is a French comics artist and creator, and an innovator in visual design. Druillet was born in Toulouse, Haute-Garonne, France but spent his youth in Spain, returning to France in 1952 after the death of his father. A science fiction and comics fan, Philippe worked as a photographer after graduating from high school, drawing only for his own pleasure. His first book appeared in 1966, entitled Le Mystère des abîmes (The Mystery of the Abyss). It introduced his recurring hero Lone Sloane and played on science-fiction themes partially inspired by his favourite writers, H. P. Lovecraft and A.E. van Vogt. Later Druillet created book covers for republications of Lovecraft's work, as well as numerous movie posters.
