(Updated with a better image of the cover and the publication program download) The next Spirou & Fantasio adventure is almost upon us, as La Colère du Marsupilami (Spirou & Fantasio #55, “Wrath of the Marsupilami”) begins its serialization in the 2. December issue of the Journal de Spirou. Ahead of that, Dupuis has sent out their program of upcoming publications to a number of interested web sites (sadly not to Spirou Reporter, but can be downloaded here), which includes the cover of the upcoming album (above), a preview of two pages, and a plot summary. (SPOILERS!)
Faced with the photos of the Marsupilami handed over by Don Contralto (at the end of album #54), Spirou has to admit that he has no memory of this adventure. And neither does Fantasio. As for the Count of Champignac, he goes into a terrible rage whenever anyone mentions the little animal with the nimble and powerful tail. There’s only one possible explanation: They have been hypnotized with the zorg-ray to make them forget that they were ever friends with the Marsupilami!
Also note that the entry confirms that the album will be 64 pages.
Separately, Yoann has posted another little excerpt on Facebook:
And from next week’s issue of the Journal (#4050), a teaser for the upcoming adventure, featuring Ninon:
Finally, the album will no doubt appear in most of the usual languages over the course of 2016 (or later), but Cobolt is the first to announce a translated edition, saying that the album will come out in Danish in “February or March” of 2016. (It would be surprising if it comes out before the French edition, so let’s say March.)
