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. Interestingly, according to publisher Cobolt, the Danish album release (as Spirillens Vrede) will be on 24. February, before the French publication!
Today I thought I’d feature a video for a change, but then another just popped up, so here’s a double dose of Spirou vehicle models, one a 3D render and one real:
The Count’s submarine, originally from Le repaire de la murène (Spirou & Fantasio #9: “The Lair of the Moray”), via La Franco-Belge on Facebook.
The Zorgmobile, originally from Z comme Zorglub (Spirou & Fantasio #15: Z is for Zorglub), via Franquin et Compagnie on Facebook.
Despite Spirou Reporter’s earlier skepticism, this theme park really seems about to happen, and here’s a teaser video as further proof:
We’ve had some weird stuff before in the “It’s Official” series, but it doesn’t get much weirder than this. Spip, Couette & Calot is a 3D animation series about the adventures of Spip, along with Spirou’s creepily-come-to-life bellhop cap (Calot) and Seccotine’s… pony tail (Couette, who’s represented as a tiny Seccotine head on legs). Seriously, W!T!F!
A couple of weeks ago, plans were announced for a Spirou theme park to be built outside of Brussels. This comes in addition to earlier news of a park in the south of France. This new park, with the working name “Spirouland”, is part of a big redevelopment project for the Heysel plateau, most famous as the site of the Atomium monument, built for the 1958 World Fair held there.
