Is the idol in the fourth panel supposed to be Bokrug?
This is the raw stuff of pulp! Ah, forbidden mysteries & dark, dangerous, and (one suspects) damp tomes. What’s not to like?
And lots of great small touches, i.e. the double-exposed face in the first panel & the atmospheric word balloons in all.
I so want to caption panel 5 with “My Precious!”
Even for an awesome series this was awesome. Best short description of Abdul’s … er, quest? ever.
I really dig those lamps in the last panel.
“You have come here from Yemen; you do not know the ancient curse on this foul city, and this evil stone, which pulses like the red heart of Satan! We have followed you here against our judgment, because you have proven yourself a strong man, and have said you hold a charm against all evil beings. You said you but wished to look on this mysterious gem, but now we see it is your intention to take it for yourself. Do not offend the djinn!”
Behold-the Mad Arab kept abreast with information technology. Verily, no mere scrolls for him, only new-fangled codexes!
Fifth Panel. Eyes. Martense. O_O
