   chose to be the wife of a brave, low-born hero rather than
   of a spineless high-born fool. This was indeed fortunate
   for the people of Garha, for they gained a queen who could
   befuddle even the mightiest of Mughal armies. Her

The Ranks of the Black Order

 The Ranks of the Black Order / Bilal & Christin; translated by Frank Wynne. -- New York : Catalan Communications, 1989. -- 80 p. : ill. ; 28 cm. -- Translation of: Les Phalanges de l'Ordre Noir. -- Spy genre. -- Call no.: PN6747.B5P4513 1989

 Summary (from the Kelly translation): In January 1978, a London newsman named Jefferson B. Pritchard learns of a massacre in an isolated Spanish village by terrorists calling themselves the Black Order Brigade. The village was destroyed as an example, because the leftists had won the last election. Pritchard recognizes the names of the Black Order members as fascists he had fought against as a member of an International Brigade in the Spanish "civil war" forty years before. Pritchard calls together ten comrades from the struggle, from all over the world, to do something about it. Though now a geriatric group, they manage to get smuggled into Spain and start finding out what's going on. The Black Order has international connections and ambitions. In Barcelona, Pritchard's group kills two members of the Order as they are leaving for Sicily. Then they follow to Italy, Switzerland, Germany, and Holland with attrition on both sides. Finally they locate the Order in a hideout in France, and in a gun battle everyone dies but Pritchard.

   "Le Héros Déshonoré" (Cap'tain Swing) p. 3-66 in Cap'tain
   Swing, no. 113 (Août 2003). -- Summary: Fort Brix is under
   siege, and food and ammunition are almost gone. Captain
   Swing sneaks in through a passageway only he knows, to try
   to encourage the defenders. Only two more days and
   reenforcements will arrive. Colonel Hopkins is in despair,
   though. If the British actually push their advantage the
   fort won't last two hours. Hopkins wonders how Swing got
   past the British lines and Swing explains, but somebody
   overhears. That night a silver platter is thrown out the
   window of Fort Brix with the details of the secret passage
   scratched on it. The British sneak in. Only Captain Swing,
   the Colonel's daughter Vivian, and her fiancé Bertie
   Wilkins survive. Swing is badly wounded. He tells a general
   investigating the case that he only told Colonel Hopkins
   about the passage, and although the Colonel is dead he is
   disgraced as a traitor. Capt. Swing takes several weeks to
   recover from his wounds. Then, at an inn, Swing
   accidentally finds the silver platter because of a
   confusion of luggage with another guest. The confusion is
   soon corrected and Swing doesn't know the significance of
   the platter, but Vivian and Bertie chance to come in as he
   is holding it. Bertie recognizes it, and since he signed
   the message with his initials decides that Swing must
   already know about his treachery. Bertie's efforts to
   recover the platter are to no avail, of course, because the
   other customer has it and has gone on his way. Swing is
   knocked out by a mysterious man searching his room (it was
   Bertie) and is invited to Vivian's place to recover. Vivian
   seems to have a slave named Sam, or at least a very
   obsequious Black servant and cook. Bertie hires a man to
   kill Swing, and has Mister Bluff (Swing's sidekick) taken
   hostage. The ransom note demands the silver plate, but
   Swing doesn't know what that's about. Swing is being held
   at gunpoint by the kidnappers when Pouik (Bluff's dog)
   brings him a pistol and joins the fray. Hibou (another
   sidekick) turns up as well, and Bluff is soon freed. The
   man with the platter knows its significance, and returns to
   ask Vivian for 200 guineas to prove her father's innocence.
   Bertie Wilkins gets to the man first, stabs him, and takes
   the platter. The man lives long enough to explain it to
   Vivian and Swing. Swing finds Wilkins trying to bury the
   platter, and the game is up. The Hopkins name is cleared,
   and Vivian is single again. -- Call no.: PN6748.C336no.113

Ransom Notes.
   "Le Livre Maudit" (Cap'tain Swing) p. 3-66 in Cap'tain
   Swing, no. 114 (Sept. 2003). -- Summary: The Redcoat
   soldiers arrest a man in the street who complains loudly of
   his fate, but when he is taken to the commanding officer it
   turns out he's an undercover agent, a traitor turning over
   a list of patriots' names. Lord Marmaduke Langsburry, an
   emisary direct from the King in London, witnesses the
   transaction and asks to see the list. Lord Langsburry
   pockets the list, then removes his beard to reveal that he
   is indeed Captain Swing. In short order the traitor is
   dead, and the fine carriage that brought "Langsburry" has
   left at a gallop. The British soldiers take off after the
   carriage, making it easy for Swing to sneak out of the
   headquarters to hide with his old friend Professor
   Griffith. The professor is puzzling over an old Rosicrucian
   book he bought from an antiquarian book dealer in
   Strasbourg. The reading isn't going well since it's
   Greco-Latino-Hebraic in runic characters. By chance, a
   soldier has seen Swing enter Griffith's house, so the
   soldiers come and the two have to flee. Also there is a
   sinister-looking bald man lurking in the house looking for
   a chance to steal the book. The professor takes the book
   with him, and they ride to Fort Ontario. Betty sets the
   professor up with a place to study. The creepy bald man
   returns to his home as well, on Black Skull Mountain, which
   is not far from Fort Ontario. He thinks awhile, then sends
   one of his superstitious Black servants, named Mumbulah, to
   go to Fort Ontario on Lake Ontario and retrieve the book,
   no matter whose life it costs. Meanwhile Griffith suddenly
   figures out the book, and it makes him crazy. He babbles
   nonsense and ancient-sounding words, and tries to kill
   Mister Bluff's dog, Pouik, by hanging it by the neck with a
   rope. Griffith's raving is so violent they have to tie him
   up. Mumbulah arrives at the fort and tries to steal the
   book, but gets locked up for his trouble. Hibou thinks
   sorcery is involved. Taking the book, Swing rides out from
   Lake Ontario for a few hours to a mountain cave full of
   books, bottles and a smoking brazier. Swing asks the wise
   man there to take a look at the book, and the wise man is
   interested. He says to come back in a few days when he's
   studied the book. Meanwhile, the strange bald man from
   Black Skull Mountain shows up at Fort Ontario asking for
   lodging. As he enters both Griffith and Mumbulah can be
   heard raving from their respective lockups, and Mister
   Bluff wonders if it might be the weather causing it. Hibou
   says that Indians lose their spirit in captivity too, and
   in sympathy lets Mumbulah out for some exercise. Mumbulah
   sees his master and immediately commits suicide by jumping
   from a tower. Then the bald man hypnotizes Betty from
   behind without her having even seen him. He tells her to go
   to town and buy a blue dress, and when she leaves the fort
   on foot he kidnaps her. When Swing comes back from
   delivering the book to his guru, a ransom note is found.
   The Rosicrucian book must be brought to Black Skull
   Mountain in exchange for Betty's life. Swing, Bluff and
   Hibou retrace Swing's path to retrieve the book, and arrive
   just as the wise man has deciphered it. He also starts
   raving and has to be tied up. The bald man gets excited
   when he mentally feels the book approaching, the book that
   was "stolen from them at Tubingen." The man tries to
   capture Swing rather than release Betty, and in the
   struggle the book and the whole house are burned to ashes.
   At that moment both of the raving scholars are released
   from their spells miles apart. They get together at Fort
   Ontario and agree that the destruction of the book was a
   good thing. The one from the mountain, the one that Swing
   calls "master," quotes Shakespeare: "There are more things
   in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosopy."

 Summary (based on 1996 version): Lubna tells Ranx to get her some heroin, and when the dealer, Damiani, comes, they ride with him to deliver to another customer, Raneiro the painter. Raneiro is working up a big show of his paintings, to be held in Lampedusa. The two men trick Lubna into deactivating Ranx, then kidnap her and dump Ranx at the Coliseum. Ranx is awakened by remote control and sent by Raneiro to kill art critic George Fox. The hit is unsuccessful, and Ranx is damaged but makes it back to beat up Raneiro and ask where Lubna is. Martine, a friend of Lubna's, finds Ranx huddled in the street and taks him home for sex and soldering. Then she takes him to the train station because he's going to Lampedusa to try and find Lubna. Ranx finds Lubna in the hands of a music mogul named Volare, who is opening a Fred Astaire retrospective on Broadway in two days and needs Ranx to play the lead. The show is a hit on opening night, until Ranx leaves the stage when he sees Lubna trying to get Volare to kiss her. They end up on 42nd Street, with Ranx holding Lubna upside down and spanking her.
