   "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."

   Includes bibliographical references. -- "Since the late
   1990s, Japanese comics, or manga, have become established
   as a globally-successful print medium. Striving for the
   transcultural and transdisciplinary exchange between
   Japanese manga researchers, European comics experts, and
   japanologists, this anthology addresses itself to readers
   who take an interest in cultural, historical, and
   theoretical reflections on reading manga. Its first part
   focuses on the case study of Nakazwa Keiji's Barefoot Gen
   (Hadashi no Gen, 1973-1987), paying special attention to
   its reception indifferent cultures. Because of its subject
   matter Barefoot Gen provokes explorations of comics'
   potential to narrate history realistically which is the
   object of attention in the second part. Finally, the third
   part highlights a variety of topics related to the impact
   of manga on other comics cultures. In accordance with the
   fact that comics studies can be conceptualized only as a
   multidisciplinary field of research, the contributors to
   this anthology deploy a variety of angles: from media
   history and cultural studies to linguistics and social

   of the victims is found in a library, and Batman notices
   the Dewey numbers on the books. He guesses that the killer
