Comment





BERCK : encre de chine pour la page de titre du onzième album de SAMMY, Deux Histoires de Gorilles, sur scénario de Raoul CAUVIN, DUPUIS, 1978.

Cette illustration reprend la case finale de la toute première histoire de SAMMY, La Samba des Gorilles, publiée dans SPIROU en 1970 puis inaugurant la Collection OKAY des Editions DUPUIS en 1972. L'histoire ne sera intégrée à la collection d'albums SAMMY qu'en 1978 dans le onzième volume, dont cette illustration originale constitue donc la page de titre. Republication en page 143 du tome 1 des intégrales TOUT SAMMY, en 1994, et en couverture de diverses éditions et revues étrangères.
