OBSCURE COMICS ABOUT A GLOBE-TROTTING KID
The above comics began to be serialized in Afacan's first series (1932-34) and continued for several years in the subsequent second series as well. It tells the story of a mischievous kid, named "Pire Nuri" in this Turkish edition, who eventually embarks on an adventure in Africa, befriending a black native kid who from that point on in the serial accompanies him thereafter in subsequent adventures as well. Some of the caligraphy inside the pictures (such as the one on the window in last panel in the above scan) are in French, but a signature as "D.Camus" is visible in some panels; I couldn't find any reference anywhere to an artist with this name.
