When a high-ranking official of a small nation in the Caucasus is killed in a car accident, the plans of a massive multinational corporation are derailed by one man: the unfortunate French trucker who caused the accident.
Pressure from the unions in France and the military in Khalakjistan prevents a quick diplomatic solution. So, to secure its own interests, the corporation calls upon the one man who can break the trucker out of prison and disarm the confrontation: Wayne Shelton.
Never heard of this series before so its all new to me. Action, intrigue, beautiful women, betrayal, a bit of humour and a good story and, if Clark Gable were alive today and making films he would have to be cast as Shelton!
Almost a modern day "Have Gun Will Travel" (go google that, youngsters!).
I'm trying -desperately- to remember if I've seen Denayer's work before? Trouble is, all these Franco-Belgian comic artists are just top-notch at what they do. I've looked over the detail in this book several times already!
Cinebook really is picking great thriller-action series...well, Van Hamme's the writer here!
A series to watch.
