The shooting of the Petit Spirou (“Little Spirou”) film directed by Nicolas Bary began 1. August and wrapped nine weeks later, on or around 5. October, reports RTL and the director. The movie is scheduled for release in one year: 18. October 2017.
Have to admit I was a bit confused by this strip until I realized that the guy in the helmet is not Spirou… This episode is by Nykko & Bannister, who respectively write and illustrate Les Enfants d’Ailleurs (published in English as The Elsewhere Chronicles). Bannister was previously featured here with an X75 strip.
Zyklotrop is the German name of Zorglub, so Lekno Portolkyz is “Uncle Zorglub” in German zorglingo.
Let’s go back in time a bit with this old piece of fanart from DeviantArt, by Knut (kittyninjafish):
There were a few updates on the publications front last month as well. Stories by Frank and by Al, Munuera clarifies a question of genealogy, some fancy Fournier books, and good news + rumors from Norway…
Steve Baker’s main contribution to the Journal de Spirou is the series La Vie en slip (“Life Is Briefs”), a gag comic about three friends, influenced by Calvin & Hobbes.
I always try to link back to the artist or source for any fanart image posted on Spirou Reporter, but it’s not always so easy. This one has been sitting in a folder on my computer for who knows how long, and seems to have vanished without trace from the Internet during that time. The filename indicates that the title is Spirou et Cie and that it comes from the Mystery Comics blog (where it’s no longer to be found), but that’s all I know. I can’t read the artist’s signature, either (“Roosa”?). Perhaps some of you may know?
