I read this 2 volume (there might be more than 2) comic book when I was a kid (around 1990, possibly before)

It starred a secret agent that was up against some evil dictator/Junta-general that farmed cacti to use for some glue/sticky weapon.

It featured some unrealistic technology, but the setting was contemporary (around 1980-90)

The one sequence from the story that I am certain about was that our hero was captured and put in a straightjacket made from the glue mentioned above, and then "tortured" by being unable to reach some cakes coming out from a machine. He escapes by crawling under some flowing hot coffee that dissolves the straightjacket.

Any ideas/links to the title/author or some images from the comicbook?


It was "Steve contre Dr. Yes" by Jacques Devos.

    How evil! Cakes that you can't reach, omg. I'd surrender my secret knowledge immediately (but I'm very fat and greedy)
