Subscribers have now had a chance to read the final installment of La Colère du Marsupilami (Spirou & Fantasio #55, “Wrath of the Marsupilami”) in the Journal. The next step is the album release on 4. March, and to promote it, Dupuis has released the “teaser trailer” above, recapping the Marsupilami’s history in the series.
