Ayak + Por 3 – De ietsoloog (The somethingologist)
Uitgeverij Strip2000, 2016
ISBN 9789 4628 02 452
The Professor, Ayak and Por travel to Scotland. A fellow traveler invites them to his castle/hotel, but asks them to prove a real monster lives in the lake next to his castle. That proof would make his hotel much more attractive for tourists. The professor has his doubts (after all he is specialized in creatures that do not exist), but by chance they also meet a somethingologist, who loves to discover “something”.
But is there really something to be discovered? And if so, would that be something people would like to find out about?

At the end of their first adventure Ayak, the Professor and Por find themselves in a sunny and sandy street in a foreign town. When they ask a local where they are everybody runs away and hides. “Hide yourselves! He is on his way!!” the people shout. “That’s funny, they are playing hide-and-seek,” Ayak thinks, finding a place to hide herself.
But is the situation really that playful?

Peter and the wolf is my own version of Prokofiev’s musical tale.
In The old painter and the sea (Marc Legendre) a great artist, who in his long career has painted almost everything, takes on the task to paint the sea.
But that turns out to be no easy task …
