Issue #4016 of the Journal de Spirou, published today, includes a rather exceptional Spirou story. Recently discovered by a collector at the bottom of an old trunk, this story appears to have been drawn by Rob-Vel in 1940, while he was serving in the French army, and has remained completely unknown and unpublished until now!
Despite Spirou Reporter’s earlier skepticism, this theme park really seems about to happen, and here’s a teaser video as further proof:
Looking ahead to tomorrow, here’s another popular pairing of the characters (including among some of the writers). Happy Valentine’s Day!
Earlier this week, the official Spirou site posted a page of “deleted scenes” from La Grosse tête (“The Big Head”). Whether these were ever really intended for inclusion or are just offered as a teaser for the album (on sale 20. March), it’s a fun little series of vignettes, and since we missed a scanlation recently, I thought this might make up for it:
The bad boy of the Spirou universe gets his own album, Spirou’s wartime adventures (in WWII and the present-day) see releases in Scandinavian, Spanish and German, and more… (Updated 11. February)
Art isn’t just illustration, and one form fandom and fanart can take is cosplay, like these live-action versions of Spirou, Fantasio, Marsupilami and Seccotine:
The original look. Inspired by the early Spirou comics by Rob-Vel (and Lafnet).
