Spirou 53 cover NO (ill. Yoann & Vehlmann; (c) Egmont; scan via minetegneserier.no)The Norwegian edition of Dans les griffes de la Vipère (Spirou #53, “In the Clutches of the Viper) has hit the streets a few days ahead of the official release date, under the title Sprint: I Vipers Klør. Published by Egmont and translated by Arvid Skancke-Knutsen, the album is number 60 in the Norwegian sequencing. The adventure was previously reviewed here.
