5. The Way to Pointe-Noire

Script by Jean-Charles Kraehn - Art by Patrick Jusseaume

Yann Calec is back as the latest volume of “Tramp” kicks off a new cycle! A posting as first mate takes him down Africa’s west coast, aboard a steamer whose captain is a petty tyrant with a terrible temper. Calec grins and bears it, but trouble has a way of finding him. When the captain’s rotting corpse is discovered on the ocean floor, Calec is thrown into the middle of a murder investigation. Add on a shark attack, unruly Krumen cargo-loaders, a mysterious nun, and illicit diamonds… Soon Calec’s wishing he stayed home with his wife and child!
