Rork

Rork is a series of eight graphic novels by German comic author Andreas. It is also the name of the protagonist of the series. The Rork series is notable for its use of allegory, mysticism, visual sequencing and unusual "dynamic" framing, with a visual structure and rhythm rather uncommon in European comics. Many mysteries explored in the various albums are not revealed until the seventh album and some albums of the twin Capricorne series, and even then many enigmas remain unanswered for the reader.
The character Rork is a white-haired "wizard" from another dimension who solves supernatural mysteries, before embarking on a quest to discover his origins. During his quest, he is assisted by a cast of characters including occult detective Raffington Event, astrologer Capricorn, the psychic Deliah Darkthorne (aka "Low Valley") and her daughter Sy-Ra, the immortal Yosta, and others. His enemies are the mysterious Pharass and Dahmaloch, revealed to be an analogy for the Devil himself in the later and twin Capricorne series.

Inspector Canardo

Inspector Canardo is a comics series created by the Belgian artist Benoît Sokal. He was named after the French noun canard, which means "duck" or "drake". Sokal created the character Inspector Canardo after graduating from Institut Saint-Luc, at the age of 20. He first drew his comics for the magazine À Suivre but after the comic became popular, they were published as albums by Casterman.

Characters
  • Canardo
The eponymous character and the protagonist of the series, Canardo is an anthropomorphic duck who has a career as a private investigator. While he is seldom seen on paid assignments, he tends to end up in dangerous situations everywhere. He is also often used as a pawn in bigger schemes because of his expendability. He suffers from severe personal problems, including vast consumption of beer to forget the unfortunate events he has gone through. While Canardo is quite skilled both in armed and unarmed combat, he is more of an everyman than a traditional hero.
Interestingly, Canardo has died, at least seemingly, several times. Most of these happen in the comics written for À Suivre. In the first incident, Canardo is about to be lynched by an angry crowd when he falls in a pit filled with urine, where he supposedly drowns. In the next comic, he is alive and well. Later, he is shot to death after being tricked by Clara. Canardo jokingly refers to this incident in the next comic, claiming that the "blood" was actually tomato sauce. In the last short comic, Canardo commits suicide, although this presumably happens chronologically after all other adventures. In the album La Fille qui rêvait d'horizon (1999), Canardo's Cadillac collides with Rasputin's motorbike, causing an explosion that is implied to have killed both Canardo and Rasputin.

  • Clara
One of the first recurring characters in the series, Clara is a femme fatale whose lust for power has led her to do extreme things. In her first appearance, she uses Canardo to kill a mobster cat named Fritz, resulting in Canardo being shot. Despite the hostility between the two, they apparently have romantic feelings for each other, although this is less evident in Clara's later appearances. Like Canardo, Clara has survived several evident deaths.

  • Rasputin
Rasputin is a huge, violent evil mystic who lives in Siberia. He and his band of raiders have terrorized Siberian villages for years. Rasputin is obsessed with immortality, and has his assistant prepare numerous medicines to slow down his natural aging. When he learns that one of his supposedly dead daughters is alive, he decides to abandon his potions and instead find the daughter and make her his successor. After the plan fails, he blames Canardo, sparking hostility between the two.

The New Tsars

1991, the Soviet Union is no more. Nevertheless, with the exception of the countries of Eastern Europe, all states that become "independent" remain under Moscow's benevolent influence. This fragmentation greatly favours the emergence of the Russian Mafia. Just think about it this way : Russian political figures at the highest levels are corrupt, colluding with disillusioned military leaders in search of money, and all of them having dealings with the Chechen rebellion. If we add an investigation conducted by members of the FSB (ex-KGB) to the cauldron and stir. Graphically, Jean-Yves Delitte offers us a classic design. The line is simple and the colour layout highlights the gray and cold of Russian winters. The New Tsars.
Yuri Vladimir is a forty-something. A highly qualified physicist who performed his military service in the Soviet Army, he left the Soviet Union for Europe in the late 80s and was soon recruited by a NATO nuclear control office. He is regularly sent to Russia to oversee the dismantling of nuclear weapons. During one of these stays, he witnesses a conspiracy and becomes a marked man.
