Dupuis Editions is bringing out the new Buck Danny episode entitled “Les Fantômes du soleil levant” (“Ghosts of the Rising Sun”), which takes place in Korea just after the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.
This legendary comic series brilliantly interweaves fiction and real events based on the global political situation of the time. The cartoonist Jean-Michel Arroyo has said that he did special research before depicting some of the most mythical airplanes in aviation history, such as the P-38 Lightning, the P-47, and numerous other European aircraft.
In the episodes contained in Volume 3, the three heroes, Buck, Sonny, and Tumb leave the “Flying Tigers” and are preparing to return to the United States when they receive a summons from General MacArthur. They must thwart a diabolical plan aimed at a large American coastal city.
