The German ZACK Magazin will be featuring Sussi Bech’s crime story, Aida Nur, from its June issue.
For this occasion, the complete Aida Nur comic has been rescanned from the original drawings and colourings, and then digitally restored and embellished by Sussi Bech.
Egyptian tombs and belly dancing
The story of Aida Nur takes place in Cairo in 1922. With a handful of friends, the belly dancer Aida Nur locates an old Egyptian tomb. Through her contacts, she tries for an easy escape from poverty by selling its antique treasures on the black market. But the news of the intact vault attracts all kinds of greedy types without scruples – from the nightclub owner Mohassib to the 7th Earl of Curmudgeon.
A period crime story.
The Aida Nur series was originally published as two 48-page books, but collected into a single hardcover edition in 2017 by Forlaget Eudor, as part of the 7-volume collection of her 19 comics since 1985.
Right now Sussi is working on the 13th and final volume in her Nofret series as well as the follow-up to last year’s huge success, Ørsted, a biographical comic telling the life of Danish scientist Hans Christian Ørsted, who discovered Electromagnetism 200 years ago. The book is currently in 4th printing.
