“It's an open secret, François Schuiten, the author of the cult comic series Les Cités Obscures, is preparing an album of Blake and Mortimer, in tribute to Edgard P. Jacobs and at the Brussels Courthouse, where he made an appointment with Hadja Lahbib and the writers of this album: Jaco Van Dormael and Thomas Gunzig. For Hadja he then raises a corner of the veil on the new pages with his colorist Laurent Durieux.

The Palace of Justice plays a crucial role in this new adventure of the British detectives, but also the Basilica of Koekelberg. François takes Hadja to visit it with the architect Jos van den Breeden. At home, facing his drawing table, he becomes a great child with the virtuous cabinetmaker Karl Theiss who creates with him 3D objects drawn straight from his imagination.”
