An e-pal sent me these images from a hardcover French comic book
about "Les Tigres volants". One of a series, this one is entitled
"Raids Over Rangoon" and the detail is impressive, even though the
artist (Felix Molinari) has wrongly placed Curtiss P-40E models in
the hands of the AVG 2nd Squadron at Mingaladon Airport. I haven't
seen the actual books, which run 45-50 pages, so I can't hazard a guess
as to what the Chinese fishermen are doing at Rangoon. Perhaps the
scans are from two different stories? Enjoy them for
what they are.
Here's a detail of the Chinese fisherman looking at the pilot's jacket. He's saying to his buddy: "Come read what's written on his back!" (The patch of course is a blood chit, with the usual message urging aid for a friendly foreign pilot.)
