Le Feu de Wotan

Crooks have gotten hold of an invention which can turn lightning into a death ray. They plan to demonstrate the weapon by sinking an oil tanker. Side effects like an ecological dissaster does not bother them much. That is merely another sales pitch.

Part of the story takes place in the castle Eltz, which is one of the most idyllic and authentic medieval castles in Germany. It is located between the Moselle and the Rhine where Leloup has placed other stories. Even the mono-rail between Wuppertal and Oberbarmen is exactly drawn.

However, Leloup might want to check out his Nordic mythology: Woden (Odin) may have been the top god, but Thor was the guy who did the thunder and lightning.

The French title translates to Woden's Fire.
