Wrapping up our week-and-a-half-long celebration of Hergé’s centenary is Danish cartoonist’s cartoonist Jan Solheim. He is known for a large number of at times hilarious, at times touching, and always dazzlingly drawn anthology contributions, two of the best of the more recent ones in BLÃ†K, for which he also did the amazing cover. His grand epic “Lava,” serialized in the anthology Fahrenheit in the 90s, remains unfinished but is nevertheless considered classic. American readers might remember him from the story “Drive-By”, written by Steven T. Seagle in ONI Double Feature a good number of years back. Check out his website here, an old archive of his work here, and his Lambiek entry here.
