Once back, Charlier and Moebius proved prophetic of their scan with the then conventional layout of the vintage excessive experience tale. not like virtually the other similar booklet of the interval, Mississippi River is a wholly anti-heroic tale. not one of the characters indicates any noble feelings for any size of time and everybody eventually proves prepared and keen to betray somebody else, only if it really is in his or her personal interest.
Cutlass himself, although imaginative, cuts a miles much less heroic determine than Blueberry. He has neither the ethical feel of the battered cavalry lieutenant, nor his genius in determined events. Cutlass’s plans backfire quite often, and purely blind good fortune or momentum appear to support him to stick alive. he's, and finally continues to be, a loser. this day we'd name one of these tale “grim”, and purely Moebius’s crafty illustration of a Louisiana sun-drenched by means of day, shadow-draped via evening, saves the booklet from being darkish in glance in addition to style.
For ten years, Mississippi River remained a one-shot ebook in Charlier and Moebius’s biography. although, ahead of his premature demise in ‘89, Charlier wrote another Jim Cutlass tale entitled “The Nights of recent Orleans”. That tale is now being drawn by means of younger French artist Christian Rossi, whose earlier photograph novel, Lea, The Confessions of Julius Antione (in collaboration with Serge Letendre) was once lately released in English.
So probably there’s nonetheless an opportunity that Cutlass will win after all!
