Spirou COVER by theEyZmaster Spirou COVER by theEyZmaster
Everybody's favorite elevator boy/adventurer Spirou (at least in French speaking countries that is!)

And his pal reporter Fantasio and Spip the squirrel!

I wanted to draw some fictive cover, and why not have fun with one of my favorite long running european franchises^^

The title is Utopia Z a reference to the bad guy alluded with the big evil shadow :P

Spirou kicks MORE ASS than Tintin ever wished to!
(+it's a lot more fun to read and the character are a lot more charismatic! 'nuff said!)

Zorglub was named Zafir in the Swedish version XD;; for unknown reasons. Not as lame as Fantasio tho, he was named Nicke. D:

Anyway, I really like this one. And I agree, Spirou kicks more ass than Tintin XD ♥

I should read Spirou, if it was translated to English, that is. I can only recall at least 3 or 4 Franco-Belgian comics localised into English. (Then again, haven't checked if there were any)

Some Spirou comics have been translated for the UK!
I'm not sure if they're easy to find now...

Heheh! What a funny coincidence. I been reading the old Spirou comics I have. Especially those with the emperor Zorglub. Believe it or not, he's one of my favorite characters. And misunderstanded evil scientist with BIG crazy plans. :XD:

Danish! Some of the names is different too.

Spirou = Splint

Fantasio = Kvik (He's name means "Wise" fun ha?)

Interesting^^

Fantasio wise?! funny XD
His french name is supposed to allude to fantasy since most adventures/accidents/problems come from him! :P

Did they translate most of the albums in Danish? I'm askin' because I'm just curious!
I hope so, my favorite albums are the ones from authors Nic&Cauvin and Fournier, those ones seem so underrated nowadays...

Ah yes ... hehe, I remember that guy!
Zyclotrop was his name in the German version of those comics, which I used to read when I was a child. :lol:

Heh. What a nice mind-control-wielding dictator/scientist. :)

Too bad his evil plans were foiled by his mind-controlled henchmen misspelling his marketing slogan when spraying it on the moon. :(

Zorglub in the original version :P
But I do find Zyclotrop a bit funny too XD
His name is supposed to be ridiculous anyway!

A great evil scientist, but I seem to like him less and less dude to the authors (previous ones, current ones, all of them!) overusing this character! I mean, it's like he's the only recurring bad guy in Spirou nowadays! (from what I've seen it's the publisher's fault, Dupuis, forcing the writers to include him every time they can..)

In the last books he started kinda as a good guy but went bad before being good again (the last books by Morvan&Munuera are kinda... hit and miss...) then they RESET the series in the plot itself °__O

They pulled a DC: Infinite Crisis in a Spirou book :P
