Description

Je dois etre le seul collectionneur au monde des planches de Richard Bantam ! :-)
Donc, apres avoir acquis il y a environ 2 ans la demi-planche exposée ici :
https://www.2dgalleries.com/art/desclez-richard-bantam-1-2-pl-11b-96414
je n'ai pas resisté à une deuxieme fournée de madeleine lorsque cette planche est passée en vente ches Septimus cet automne 2019.
On retrouve dans cette planche les ingredients dont je parle dans la description de l'autre planche et qui plaçent cet heros comme un clone de Valerian :
Une jeune femme (en plus originaire de la planete que R Bantam explore), comme Laureline dans le 1er Valerian .. et qui lui ressemble pas mal, en plus !
Un style graphique ni humoristique, ni realiste.
Un agent spatial dont la mission est suivie depuis la terre.

Cela n'enleve rien aux qualités graphiques que je trouve à ces planches... depuis ma premiere lecture il y a ... bien longtemps dans Spirou

Il manquerait pour faire un vrai dyptique la demi-planche 11A, elle est aussi passée sur Catawiki en 2016, je regardais certainement ailleurs....

About Henri Desclez

Henri Desclez is a Belgian comics author and painter, who currently resides in Québec. Born in Braine-le-Comte in the province of Hainaut, he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels. He created his first comic stories in cooperation with scenarist Michel Noirret, that were published in Pilote in 1967 and 1968. A year later, he joined Le Soir Jeunesse, where he served as an editor and made the 'Mycroft et Klaxon' series with André-Paul Duchâteau and later J. Daniël. He additionally drew 'Le Tailleur de Londres' and 'Les Mystères de Bruges' for this newspaper supplement under the pseudonym Hapic. Also with scripts by Duchâteau, Desclez drew 'Saint Fauston' for Tintin in 1969, and 'Richard Bantam' for Spirou in 1970. 'Richard Bantam' was later continued in Le Soir by Henri Decoster. In 1972 he founded Studios Desclez, to produce seven comic adaptations of 'San-Antonio', based on the stories starring the police commisioner of the same name by Francis Dard. The first two books were drawn in cooperation with Franz and published by Fleuve Noir. That same year, Desclez became editor-in-chief of the Belgian edition of Pilote, where he opened the doors for many national artists. In 1975 and 1976, he succeeded Michel Greg as editor-in-chief of the Belgian version of Tintin, bringing with him most of his team from Samedi Jeunesse, including Cosey, Henri Decoster, Christian Denay
