Mop and Monkus don't just solve mysteries-they write them! This gumshoe duo, beloved as Tintin or Astérix, has been a fixture of French comics for decades. And now they're back as Blutch, a leading comics talent of his generation, pays tribute to the adventures he cherished as a child. No sooner stymied by the sudden disappearance of their faithful friend, the Contessa Kiki, than our scripter sleuths find themselves beset by a crooked antiques dealer they thought they'd put behind bars for good. Suspicious inspectors, evil robots, gangsters from around the globe: how will Mop and Monkus ever pull through?
