Ric Hochet

After two bombings and a murder disguised as a suicide, Ric Hochet is convinced he will find the answer to the riddle in the city of Angoulême.

Accompanied by Nadine, the journalist goes on site in the middle of the International Comics Festival. It is here that Ric Hochet is going to confront the criminal again, in the middle of a signing session in the Champ de Mars bubble, specially installed each year for the event.

The album is an opportunity for Ric Hochet to face his two creators, Tibet and André-Paul Duchâteau. This adventure is inspired by his novel, Mourir à Angoulême, published in 1990.


Ric Hochet albums have sold more than 15 million copies worldwide.
