Since Dupuis acquired Marsu Productions, there’s been a lot of talk about how this means the Marsupilami can once again appear in The Adventures of Spirou and Fantasio. What hasn’t been considered so much is that it also works the other way. The issue of Journal de Spirou currently on sale (until tomorrow) includes the last part of the Marsupilami adventure Coeur d’etoile (Marsupilami #27, “Star’s Heart”) by Batem and Colman, and features a cameo by Spirou, Fantasio, Spip, and “their” Marsupilami.
The story also reveals (for the first time, as far as I am aware) that the two Marsupilamis are brothers. Although we should perhaps take this with a grain of salt, since the whole story is told as a campfire tale in the village of a nearby tribe, and it’s not clear at least to me how the (white) storyteller could possibly know this. Still, fun to see the universes being tied together more!
