Background[edit]

The album is not part of the initial series, which is made up of 16 albums, numbered from 0 to 15. It is the last album of a new series. Initially, the new series, launched after the author's death, was made up of 18 albums, but some works had been published only in Spirou magazine but never in albums, and other content had never been published anywhere.
