[ Yoko Tsuno ] -> [ L'astrologue de Bruges ]
The painter Jan van der Laet has invited Yoko to Bruges in order to paint her. But soon Yoko learns that she must have visited Bruges more than 400 years ago. She asks Monya to bring the time machine because an elembic or flask containing the plague has been hidden within Bruges since 1545. To prevent another outbreak of the feared black death Yoko travels back in time to meet the Devil.
And Pol picks up an unexpected souvenier.
We have a small collection of photos from Bruges, which shows how careful Leloup is to study the scenes of his stories.
The French title translates to
The Astrologer of Bruges,
whereas the Danish title was
The Black Death.
