Synopsis

Pandora's Box Gluttony by Alcante

Teze has been appointed head of a food agency by his father, who trusts him to stand up to big business interests. He notices a sudden recent resurgence in the number of tests done to determine the presence of mad cow disease. So far, all the results have been negative, but the fact that this testing is happening on such a huge scale sends alarm bells ringing. Teze now has to deal with the interests of the intensive farming lobby. He becomes increasingly frustrated by the fact that several of the big companies are trying to influence his thinking and to convince him to let them off the hook. Teze stands firm and introduces an even more stringent form of testing. This time, the results seem to point to a new, more virulent strain of mad cow disease. Could man's gluttony be at the heart of the problem?

About the Author

Alcante won a Spirou magazine script-writing competition in 1995. Since 2002, his short comics have been published regularly in Spirou. Pandora's BoxA is his first series. He is inspired by fairy tales and legends from all over the world, and his influences range from Jean Van Hamme to Alan Moore. Dupre worked as a commercial artist and illustrator for several Flemish magazines before striking out on his own with the ComaA series in 2002. This brought him to the attention of Alcante and the Dupuis publishing company, and he was asked to illustrate the third instalment of the Pandora's BoxA series.
