Seventy-seven of those volumes were of Ric Hochet, the investigative reporter detective, whose jacket and yellow Porsche are an icon in Franco-Belgian comics, the last of which will be published in March.
This will be just after the seventieth volume of Chick Bill, a comedy Western series that moved from anthromorphic to human characters over its run.
Ric Hochet writer, André-Paul Duchâteau attributes the creation of réalisme humoristique, humorous realism to Tibet. And while his work harldy impinged in UK and US cultural sensibilities, Tibet’s large body of work remains in print.
UPDATE: Another Ric Hochet book was half finished on Tibet’s death. The remaining script to the 78th volume will be completed by the great and the good artists of the French/Belgian comics industry.
