Comment

Barbara Bodine est la plantureuse et indispensable adjointe de Julius Stileman à la direction de Stileman Enterprise, conseillère, personne de confiance, experte militaire et amante.

Au XXIe siècle, Lord Stileman a mis au point un traitement qui permet de prolonger la jeunesse et la vie mais la cure ne produit ses effets que pendant une décennie. Le prix du traitement : tout ce que vous possédez et au minimum un million de livres sterlings. Après, une course contre la montre commence pour accumuler 1 million de livres et s'offrir la cure suivante.

En haut du Building de Stileman Enterprises, dans leur bureau-appartement, Miss Bodine et Lord Stileman tentent de juguler la menace d'un nouvel ordre mystique qui offre aussi l'éternité, mais sans traitement.

J'aime beaucoup l'utilisation du décor en damier et les aplats noirs (Pull de Stileman) qui se rajoutent à la variation des angles de vues pour rythmer la planche. Quant aux décors de Marvano ils sont toujours très précis et réalistes, même si dans le cas présent il s'agit d'un immeuble imaginaire

About Marvano

Mark van Oppen, alias Marvano, studied interior architecture before choosing a career as illustrator. His first drawings appear in the Dutch science fiction magazine Orbit, which he signed with Marvano. He continued making illustrations in the science fiction genre for the publishers Heyne in Germany and Meulenhoff in the Netherlands. By 1982, he stopped his architecture activities and became editor-in-chief of Kuifje, the Flemish version of Tintin. During his period he published his first comics in both Kuifje/ Tintin and Robbedoes+ (the Dutch version of Spirou Album +). In 1986 he was appointed head of the comics section of the Flemish publishing firm Den Gulden Engel. Marvano's first artistic claim to fame was his adaptation of SF novel 'The Forever War' by the American novelist Joe Haldeman, that was published as a trilogy in the Aire Libre collection of the publishing house Dupuis in 1988 and 1989. For these books, Marvano worked in close collaboration with the writer, who became a personal friend. Marvano returned to science fiction with 'Dallas Barr', a futuristic series about eternal life, created in cooperation with Joe Haldeman. It was published by Dupuis between 1996 and 2000. Lombard released two new installments in 2005. Marvano and Haldeman made a new SF saga called 'Libre à Jamais' for Dargaud in 2002 and 2003. Text (c) Lambiek
