After reading the highly rated Spirou –
Le Journal d’un Ingénu https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2… I headed for some classic Spirou instead. Mooz has released a few collections by Fournier in Swedish, so that is were I started. The book is of good quality, even though someone should have proofread the translations a bit more.
There is some background story to how this incarnation of Spirou came to be, and it is said that former master artist Franquin helped the new artist Fournier to get on track with Spirou who was by then a well established adventure character. I think one can see how Fournier develops his style over the adventures in this album, from a bit fuzzy to master of the art in the last one.
There are three albums included in this collection, and I read them all when I was about 7 or 8 years old last time. For an adult, they are still entertaining, in that sense of watching an old matine movie can be. This is not something by Neil Gaiman, and it does not pretend to be. The storys are quite naive though, and are just exuses for letting the adventure and gags go on, but hey, that is the same with all good adventures. As always, buy the edition in your language (Swedish for me) to support future releases.
