Synopsis [edit] Aurora and Ulysses, Centaurs came from Mount Olympus, are immortal, very young and curious. While they wanted to know how was this world with these simple creatures, they have disobeyed orders prohibiting cross the door that separates the mansions of the gods to mortals.
Need to cross a door to nothingness announced by three black points to return to Olympus. By it is known what spell, whenever they go through this door, they are not found in the world, but at another time of the land of the mortals.
Their good heart caused them to help the disadvantaged of these different periods of history.
History [edit] while he launched his own series the adventures of the little men in 1967 in a style highly influenced by Franquin, Pierre Seron joins the young Stephen Desberg screenwriter who wrote a few stories before proposing the publication in the weekly magazine Spirou, Aurora & Ulysses: the visitor and the men of the woods appear for the first time in this December 29, 1977 in the same issue.
In 1979, the Christmas special in the magazine Spirou, Mittéï wrote a comprehensive history in two pages with a title dream team where, no doubt, many readers there noticed colouring error. Indeed, the colorist is mixed brushes and invert the colors of the Manes and the bodies of our hero [1].
Dupuis publishes heroes of Pierre Seron album under the title Aurora, Ulysse… Centaurs in 1982.
The Spirou magazine presents Uwélématibukaliné, a new episode of the adventures of little men, on June 15, 1988, where dawn and Ulysses also lived an adventure with the small beings. The title changed, it is called now the volcano of gold in the publication in album with Dupuis.
Despite the success, Pierre Seron stops the series that the requirement of the general public has shifted to his small men who calmly continue their careers by exploiting all the themes and genres where you can compare the world of the “big” and that “small” [2].
As early as 1991, the Jourdan editor repeats the series.
