Non, mais sérieux : un mag’ VF Conan, ça s’y prête forcément.

Ce serait bien…mais on aura très certainement tout ça en albums…

Là, ils ont l’air de coller à la Bêlit des textes : peau d’albâtre, tout ça… J’avoue que, si je respecte ce souci de fidélité, la version de Buscema (sorte de furie méditerranéenne) me plaît davantage. Mais bon, c’est moi.

C’est clair.

Oui, oui, je me doute bien. Le contraire serait surprenant.
Mais j’espère tout le temps, moi !

C’est moi aussi. Les différentes Bêlit croisées dans les bandes dessinées (dernièrement il y a eu celle de Pierre Alary) ont souvent du mal à supporter la comparaison avec celle de Buscema…

BÊLIT. The name alone conjures fear up and down the coasts of the Hyborian Age. And the sight of her ship, the Tigress, is an omen of despair for any town in the pirate queen’s path!

The AGE OF CONAN kicks off with one of Conan’s most formidable – and memorable – female compatriots, in an all-new story revealing how she became the undisputed QUEEN OF THE BLACK COAST!

The teenage Bêlit, obsessed with the sea – as well as the monsters and treasures she thinks are summoning her there – stows away on the ship of the dread Admiral ATRAHASIS into a deadly adventure even she could not predict!

Ah tiens je me disais aussi que c’était moche

Ah, je croyais que c’était le mal de mer qui me faisait vomir…
