Today sees the simultaneous announcement and launch of a new Spirou album (Edit: actually, since today is only 29. May, the official launch isn’t for another couple of days) … Sorry, that should be Robbedoes, as for the first time a Spirou adventure is published originally in Dutch. Robbedoes Special #1: Happy Family is a 48-page album written by Marc Legendre and drawn by Charel Cambré (both Flemish, and known for their version of Suske & Wiske, Amoras, known in French as Amphoria).
Ballon Media provides this blurb, roughly translated here:
A super-brain the size of an egg? Only the Count of Champignac could cook up something like that. His new invention allows planes to fly without pilots and cars to park themselves in the tightest spots. The possibilities are limitless, but those with less noble intentions consider the egg golden. It’s up to Spirou to watch over it like a mother hen.
According to other descriptions, the story is a road trip where Spirou and Fantasio come across an artificially intelligent doll. (And yes, if you take a closer look at the cover, the “mother” is actually Fantasio.) It’s the first in a three-part story, with the second to follow in December, and the third in spring 2018.
There’s a preview here, from which this first page is taken. More information to follow.
