³This road...this road was going to become my only friend, my unique refuge. This road that went straight to the mirages thousands had only left to believe in. A mirage, my mother says, is like a golden apple which will never fall... I don¹t believe her. I¹ll be under the tree. And the apples will fall.²

Jean Dufaux is a prolific comics writer who has written for a lot of famous comics artists. Fascinated by cinema, he took some courses in cinematographic arts, which would later influence him in his comics scenarios. Dufaux did his first scenario work for Tintin, where he eventually teamed up with Renaud. For Tintin he co-wrote 'Brelan de Dames' with Jean-Luc Vernal for Renaud. In 1987, Renaud and Dufaux started the 'Jessica Blandy' series for Novedi publishers. This became one of Dufaux' most famous creations, the first series in which he created psychological depth. Dufaux expanded his activities in the late 1980s, writing comics like 'Melly Brown' (art by Musquera), 'La Toile et la Dague' (art by Aidans) and most notably, the post-apocalyptic series 'Beautifica Blues' (art by Griffo). Again with Griffo, Dufaux started the Casanova inspired series 'Giacomo C.' in 1987. With 'Les Enfants de la Salamandre' (art by Renaud) Dufaux brought a fantasy element into his comics, which he later continued in 'Les Jardins de la Peur' (art by Eddy Paape and Sohier). Jean Dufaux launched four new series in the early 1990s: 'Chelsy' (art ?ric Joris), 'Avel' (art Durieux), 'Fox' (art J.F. Charles) and 'Santiag' (art Renaud). He also started rebuilding some literary works into comics, for which artists like Griffo, Rotundo, Savey and Mal's did the artwork. In 1992 he introduced the young female artist Vivianne Nicaise to the comics field with the series 'Sang de Lune'. He restarted 'Beautifica Blues' in a second cyclus, 'Samba-Bugatti', as well as new series with Jamar ('Les Voleurs d'Empires) and Grzegorz Rosinski ('La Complainte des Landes'). The late 1990s also meant the start for new series, like 'Dixie Road' (art Labiano), 'Murena' (art Philippe Delaby), 'Rapaces' (art Marini), 'Ombres' (art Lucien Rollin), 'Les R?voltes' (art Mal?s), 'Niklos Koda' (art Oliver Grenson) and 'L'Imp?ratrice Rouge' (art Adamov). The new millennium brought yet again new series, 'Djinn' (art Ana Mirall?s) and 'Les Rochester' (art Philippe Wurm). Throughout his career, Jean Dufaux became a very popular scenarist, who is able to write in various genres, but still in his own recognizable style.

Meanwhile, Nadine's daughter, Dixie, as self-assured and adventurous as her mother, poses for a nude portrait as a gift to Louis, a young black man and friend—a dangerous gesture for a young white girl's reputation and even more dangerous to Louis's life in the Depression-era deep South.
