With the word that Yoann is working on the design for a new Turbotraction model, this fanart seemed appropriate.
Trawling through archives for Spirou fanart, I was particularly struck by this piece. That’s one rather androgynous Spirou there! (Reminds me a bit of this.)
… and the publishing schedule taketh away. The last week or so has seen quite a lot of changes to the list of upcoming publications.
Among the comics previewed in the Journal de Spirou this week is Yoann & Vehlmann’s next Spirou album, #54. How are things coming along with that?
This week’s issue of the Journal de Spirou (#3934) is something of a treat for Spirou fans.
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.
