Zyklotrop is the German name of Zorglub, so Lekno Portolkyz is “Uncle Zorglub” in German zorglingo.
Let’s go back in time a bit with this old piece of fanart from DeviantArt, by Knut (kittyninjafish):
There were a few updates on the publications front last month as well. Stories by Frank and by Al, Munuera clarifies a question of genealogy, some fancy Fournier books, and good news + rumors from Norway…
Steve Baker’s main contribution to the Journal de Spirou is the series La Vie en slip (“Life Is Briefs”), a gag comic about three friends, influenced by Calvin & Hobbes.
I always try to link back to the artist or source for any fanart image posted on Spirou Reporter, but it’s not always so easy. This one has been sitting in a folder on my computer for who knows how long, and seems to have vanished without trace from the Internet during that time. The filename indicates that the title is Spirou et Cie and that it comes from the Mystery Comics blog (where it’s no longer to be found), but that’s all I know. I can’t read the artist’s signature, either (“Roosa”?). Perhaps some of you may know?
This episode is by Christophe Bataillon, a French artist who’s worked for a number of comics magazines. In the Journal de Spirou, he usually does gag cartoons and quiz illustrations.
Munuera, Bravo, Yoann and Kolk (Update: and Severin!)… That should be enough of a teaser for this update!
