Samples from three upcoming one-shots, upcoming publications in Icelandic, Spanish and English, and some minor updates on two books in French…
Following the rundown of French publications from the last few months, let’s see what’s going on in other languages. As you might imagine, it’s a lot, so let’s just get to it!
The bad boy of the Spirou universe gets his own album, Spirou’s wartime adventures (in WWII and the present-day) see releases in Scandinavian, Spanish and German, and more… (Updated 11. February)
Before you’ve even had a chance to get the super-special edition of the latest Spirou adventure, it’s time to get excited about the next next Spirou album… but sad about one character that will houba hop away again, and a one-shot that won’t be seen at all… Edit: And art for a new Spirou story with the Turbotraction!
As so often happens, a publications update is immediately followed by other announcements. So let’s very briefly add some words about upcoming Spanish and Danish releases:
New albums now out in French, English and… Icelandic? Dutch, Finnish, German and Swedish soon to follow, the True History of Spirou continues, and more!
This week’s Journal de Spirou brings the ending to the latest Spirou & Fantasio adventure by Yoann & Vehlmann, Le Groom de Sniper Alley (Spirou #54, “The Sniper Alley Bellhop”). And that means another cliffhanger/teaser for the album to follow. This one is of particular interest, and has already generated a great deal of discussion and speculation. At the same time, giving away the ending is obviously a MAJOR SPOILER, so consider carefully whether you want to peek!
Sniper Alley complete, a non-linear adventure awaits, The Big Head gets ready, and lots more books to come from CBPY…
Just a few things to report, so let’s make this super quick: A German Gesamtausgabe, Spirou for Spanish-speakers, K.O. for V.O., and Spirou takes cover in Sniper Alley… (Updated)
The first part of the next Spirou adventure (which now goes by the title Le Groom de Sniper Alley, “The Sniper Alley Bellhop”) appears in this week’s issue of the Journal, and next week’s installment is already in the hands of some subscribers. (A number of pages can also be previewed on Izneo, where many of the pictures in this post are from.) So let’s have a sneak peek. (SPOILERS follow!)
