Other top pieces are an end page from Asterix by Uderzo, a Gaston page by Franquin, the Incal by Moebius, Boule et Bill by Roba, a Corto Maltese illustration by Hugo Pratt.
The usual, but still very rare, Astroboy pages by Osamu Tezuka. Many pages by Manara. A beautiful 3 page Natacha story by Walthery. A very nice Olivier Rameau page by Dany.
