A few weeks ago, Spirou Reporter reposted an image that Kid Toussaint had put up on Facebook, a film noir-ish drawing by Chris Evenhuis for an aborted Spirou project they worked on together. Toussaint followed up that post with a series of images from another Spirou project, this time with more of a superhero flavor:

'Spirou Comics' sample (ill. David Lafuente & Kid Toussaint; Copyright (c) the artists; Spirou (c) Dupuis; SR translation; image from facebook.com/tkid.toussaint)(The reference to the “professor” being 75 suggests that this may have been intended for the Spirou 75th anniversary issue in 2013.)

Part of a series of sketches and character studies created for an abandoned project. The image file name hints that it may have involved Yann. The original blog post has a number of other pictures, including one that looks like it’s either a comic page layout (a proposed one-shot?) or a storyboard for a cartoon (Fagot works as an illustrator and animator).
