Just a short little scanlation this week, a 2007 half-page by the father-son team Jean and Simon Léturgie: Qui vivra verra (literally “who lives will see,” more idiomatically, “time will tell”).

'Who lives will see' (ill. Léturgie, Léturgie; (c) Dupuis)Often mentioned as possible Spirou creators (rumors of a one-shot, or that they would take over the series after Morvan & Munuera, were floating around a few years ago… just about when they made this gag, in fact), the Léturgies have so far been consigned to the “tomb of rejects.” On the other hand, they now have the Gaston-spinoff Gastoon with Yann, so maybe that puts them in an annex to the “hall of successors”?

Spirou ami, partout, toujours!” (“Spirou: friend, wherever, forever!”) was originally the motto of the fan club AdS (Amis de Spirou, Friends of Spirou), and has been associated with the comic for many decades.

    What a shame these two didn’t make their way into the official series. They would have been a good addition to the Yann&Vehlman tomes (and we would have had a more steady flux of Spirou stories)

    Obviously, I meant “Yoann”… #DyslexiaForever

    The three men depicted on the mural are the famous Spirou creators Jijé, Franquin and Fournier.

    I’d assume the two-headed man at last is meant to be Morvan/ Munuera.
