Don’t anger the artist

When Flemish cartoonist Ken Broeders presented his historical comic, Apostata, to Casterman, publishers of the famous Alix series by Jacques Martin, Martin personally tried every trick in the house to keep them from accepting it.   It was as if he wanted the historical comics niche all to himself, with Alix and a slew of other titles drawn by himself and his assistents.

In the second installment of Apostata, which was published last week (by Casterman !), Broeders finally has his revenge.  In this scene, two characters are shown, killed on a stake, who very closely resemble Martin’s Alix and Enak .  Serves them right.
