'Spirou, at your service!' (ill. Piette and Trondheim, 2013; (c) Dupuis and the artists; SR scanlation)

Two scanlations in one day? Inconceivable! Actually, the Jijé story posted earlier today was really supposed to be for a week ago, but it got delayed, and so here’s this weekend’s scanlation. (OK, so it’s technically Monday by the time this goes up, but let’s ignore that…) This is one of the stories from the 75th anniversary issue of the Journal de Spirou last year (#3914), by Hugo Piette and Lewis Trondheim. It seems to be a prequel to this story posted previously.

'Spirou, at your service!' p.1 (ill. Piette and Trondheim, 2013; (c) Dupuis and the artists; SR scanlation)

'Spirou, at your service!' p.2 (ill. Piette and Trondheim, 2013; (c) Dupuis and the artists; SR scanlation)

'Spirou, at your service!' p.3 (ill. Piette and Trondheim, 2013; (c) Dupuis and the artists; SR scanlation)

'Spirou, at your service!' p.4 (ill. Piette and Trondheim, 2013; (c) Dupuis and the artists; SR scanlation)

If you’re curious about the soda siphon – and really, who wouldn’t be? – take a look at the very first Spirou page.

    One thing I didn’t even notice until right now: When the hotel director (M. Papillon, though he’s not named here) gets pickpocketed, he accidentally spritzes the painting behind him, and in the next frame Spirou springs through the canvas… Or maybe from it?

    In any case, it’s a more direct reference to Rob-Vel & Lafnet’s Birth of Spirou than I realized at first.
