Redbeard must stop a French pirate who’s robbing the plantation owners of the New World. Along with Eric, Baba, and Tripod, they head out after “The Ghost.” But their prey is hardly what it seems… Written by Jean-Charles Kraehn and illustrated by the young virtuoso Stefano Carloni, the strong winds of adventure infuse this two-part story that would make the original creators Jean-Michel Charlier and Victor Hubinon proud.
Jean-Charles Kraehn has a fantastic knowledge of the sea, from boats to the history of piracy and the series originally created by Jean-Michel Charlier and Victor Hubinon in 1959 in “Pilote” magazine. Situated within the original creators’ timeline (which has since been continued by Jijé, Gaty, and Ollivier), the writer of “Tramp” weaves a two-part tale worthy of the best pirate stories. Virtuoso Stefano Carloni respects the graphic codes of Victor Hubinon’s characters and paints a dynamic and spectacular stage. Realistic and meticulously referenced naval scenes embellish an adventure story in the purest dramatic tradition so near and dear to Jean-Michel Charlier’s heart.
