A while ago, the Scanlation Sunday piece was a couple of test pages by Stanislas, proposals for Spirou one-shots that never happened. But what does a successful pitch look like? Here’s Frank Le Gall‘s test page for what became the one-shot Les marais du temps (“The Marshes of Time”).
Last week brought no updates on the publication front, but there are a few things to report from this week. A special edition is released, a one-shot is delayed, and there are details on the Gaston box set and a book about Jijé.
I love this image. Apparently it is a mockup cover for a proposed art book, but Follet and Dionnet couldn’t get the necessary permission from the copyright holders. Follet is a veteran Belgian comics illustrator, and he has produced a number of great pieces of fanart.
Here are another few bits of the Spirou comic jam An Exquisite Corpse:
The Paris auction house Artcurial have announced the lots for sale in their next big comics auction, on 16 November. They include first editions and a number of pieces of Spirou art, as well as other works by artists such as Jijé and Franquin (and many non-Spirou greats as well).
I figure this for Fantasio’s Halloween costume.
