On 15. August, Marc Hardy celebrated his sixty-fifth birthday by posting 65 samples of his work to Facebook. According to Stripspeciaalzaak, that included this page, although it no longer seems to be available from Facebook:

Clearly a page from (or possibly a study for) his long-in-development one-shout Soumaya, written by Zidrou, it appears to show some kind of dream sequence, with Hardy’s more realistic character style on display. The album is expected in 2018.

    There was another page with a hostage-taker in an airplane, but it disappeared as well


    Apparently, Hardy was so disappointed with his first draft that he burnt it on a barbecue grill. Hopefully, he feels better about his work now.
