From 'La homard' (ill. Franquin; (c) Dupuis)

Spirou Reporter is going on holiday, but that doesn’t mean the site will be without updates. A whole bunch of posts have already been written and are scheduled to be posted automatically over the next few weeks. That includes the regular Fanart Friday and Scanlation Sunday updates, as well as a special summer serial starting on Monday. So check back!

However, it won’t be possible for new visitors to leave comments (because first-time commenters have to be approved), and there’s a chance the Facebook notifications may be a bit glitchy. Shouldn’t be a big deal, and anything that goes wrong can be sorted out once we’re back in person. Still, if you do think you might want to leave a comment, it might be a good idea to get approved within the next few hours.

Meanwhile, have a great summer (or winter, if you’re in the southern hemisphere), and we’ll catch up with you and with ongoing Spirou news in a few weeks!

Don't speak French (ill. Yoann)

Hey there, and welcome to Spirou Reporter‘s first entry!

Spirou has many fans worldwide, but a lot of the news and publications are only available in French. Spirou Reporter is aimed at the non-francophone fan base, providing reporting and translations in English of everything Spirou-related. That includes publications in French as well as English, German, and the Scandinavian languages (+ others when there’s information available).

There’ll be plenty to write about, particularly as this is an anniversary year for the series. So hop on!
