Earlier this week, the official Spirou site posted a page of “deleted scenes” from La Grosse tête (“The Big Head”).

Here’s a first glimpse of a page from the next Spirou adventure by Yoann & Vehlmann:

Spirou and Fantasio are back in the office, and isn’t that Lebrac the artist (from Gaston)? This looks to me like the page-layout or initial rough pencil sketch, which is later copied more neatly and in larger format for the final pencils.
