With La Colère du Marsupilami (Spirou & Fantasio #55, “Wrath of the Marsupilami”) underway, maybe it’s a good time to post this fancomic (from Facebook):

'Marsu tu as perdu la tête', homage to Franquin ("Marsu you have lost your head"; ill. Jo Albanese; Copyright (c) 2015 by the artist; Spirou (c) Dupuis, Marsupilami (c) Marsu Productions; image from

“Here! He’s heeere!” “Good Marsupilami! Good…” “Hey! Marsu, what are you doing? You’ve lost your mind…” Homage to Franquin, by Jo Albanese (2015).

Jo Albanese is clearly a big Franquin fan, to judge from his Facebook feed, and his monsters in particular are close imitations of Franquin’s style.
