Eternal duel

By Morvan, Munuera and Lerolle.

The device Spirou is holding is a G.A.G. It first appeared in the album ‘Le prisonnier du Boudda’ (The prisoner of the Buddha) by Franquin. The G.A.G. can make people float, change the weather and let plants grow quickly. In album 50: Aux sources du Z (The orgins of the Z) by Morvan and Munuera, the thing can also time travel.

This whole thing is basically in reference to Aux sources du Z (The orgins of the Z)… Which as far as I’m concerned was a fascinating trainwreck.

Nice visuals and AU’s in this one though.

I agree, little Benoît is super cute (especially this one)!

It turns out that the first four books in the series have been translated by Papercutz Comics in the USA as “Benny Breakiron" (they’ve also translated some of the Smurf books, but I prefer Anthea Bell & Derek Hockridge's translations of those).

I’ve currently scanlated up to page 45 of The Red Taxi Gang (so plenty more pages to upload in the meantime!). Should I carry on?

Hehe Thanks

It’s hard to say I’m really enjoying the comic so far and I wouldn’t have known about this series without you doing this, but then the point of these scanlations is usually to give access to books that you can’t normally get in English which you can with this.

I wouldn’t want your work to be a waste maybe post the pages you have end on a cliff hanger? or would that be unfair? (well it’s pretty much ended on a cliffhanger so far anyway) Well you’d be the one with the work to do what do you think?

Benoît Brisefer/Steven Strong is just the cutest sweetest little kid, so I wanted draw something.

Christmas without snow / F is for Fantasio

If the text in the balloon of the mayor in the first page, second panel is too long, don’t read it, but skip it and read the rest of the comic. That one text balloon isn’t important for the story and mostly just blabbering.

Fantasio has a really weird way of getting rid of his video store fines.

For the proverb in the last panel, I could also have used ‘The hot sun melts away the snow; when anger comes, does wisdom go’ and ‘Never mind storms and snows for the sake of a friend’.

So now that “Flume-igation” has aired I guess I can post this.
The week I painted this my computer was freaking out and randomly deleting files, so I saved multiple versions as i worked just incase one of them got deleted so I wouldn’t have to start from scratch.
That means I wound up having images of different stages of the painting process, so enjoy!
I’m not sure this shot even made it into the final cut of the episode.
The line art was by Erik Martin, aaaand I’m not sure who drew this particular frame of the storyboard. Someone tell me and I’ll update this description!

He is the the cousin and the opposite of Fantasio. Zantafio is the real bad guy of the series. He is an upstart wrongdoer who will almost impose his dictatorship to a whole country.
André Franquin’s saying :
"It was an easy thought. Since the cousin Zantafio was as malicious as Fantasio was good, I did a sort of spoonerism with the name, and I gave him the same appearance, the same face, but he is as dark-haired as the other one is blond. (…) I wanted a strong resemblance and a contrast.”

if there was a reverse Fantasio in le vallee des bennis, maybe there will be a good zantafio in the future? (i hope) 

He sort of was a good guy by the end of ’ Spirou et les héritiers’, which was his first appearance. And it’s my favourite depiction of him in the main albums.
I think he’s way underused as an antagonist, he could be a very interesting one, considering his personal connection with Fantasio, and his motives for doing what he’s doing.
Which depend on the story and the writer, so maybe I should say ‘possible motives’. Because I don’t think he was particularly well-used character in something like ‘Spirou and Fantasio in Moscow’, where he was, I don’t even know what his plan was, apart from standard supervillainy.
Which is way less interesting than a man who does those kinds of horrible things because he sees no other choice or because it’s the easiest way out.
You could even write him as the kind of reluctant ally, someone who is on the same side as the heroes for his own reasons, and could betray them any moment.

I always thought his plans related to world domination or just trying to get into a position with power and money.  Zorglub tries to do it in an unreal outlandish ways with weird science and technology. Zantafio tries to do it in more political ways rising to power and then trying to extend that power, through war but probably through diplomacy too. I always think about that guy in the Moscow album who said Zantafo seemed like a great politician.  Then in between just surviving as a petty criminal until he can find a way to power again.

But why? How does he feel about his methods? Does he convince himself he is in the right or doesn’t he care about others?
Let’s compare him to Zorglub. Although does Zorglub really want world domination?
He certainly wants to feed his ego, and be recognized as a genius (he especially seeks the Count’s approval) but I don’t think he ever was interested in ruling the world.
Zorglub doesn’t see himself as the villain of his story, if anything he is sort of naive (think of his whole plan to get funds by selling toothpaste and not thinking the consequences.). And doesn’t think how his actions affect others.
But he has the goal of doing science and being recognized as a genius.
Zantafio on the other hand feels much more like an opportunist. He tends to just drift from one scheme to the next, I always thought he mainly wanted to live a rich comfortable life.
As for his characterization, it depends. I like him in ‘heritiers’, because he is mostly a small-time crook and not a wanna-be supervillain.
He also has a conscience, he just ignores it. He sabotages the race, but tells the other guy not to hurt Fantasio. (I don’t have the comic with me so I can’t check but it was something like that)
Even though he is directly putting his cousin at risk. He just tells himself there’s no real danger because he doesn’t want to think about it.
I bet he is telling himself he has no choice.
I basically prefer Zantafio as a small-time crook out of his depth.
And that’s how I tend to see him, even in something like ‘Spirou and Fantasio in Moscow’, where his plans seem sort of shortsighted and in the end not all that grandiose.
But it would be nice seeing his character fleshed out a bit in the future stories.

I don’t think he has to convince himself weather he’s doing right or wrong he sees a way to get what he wants and takes it.
I can see what you mean, I guess taking over the world wouldn’t be his main aim, he’s definitely an opportunist and he’s probably not content taking orders he’s always aiming for positions of power and sometimes he seems to just land in the right place at the right time.
I’m not sure he cares that much about other people which is why he can keep up the criminal lifestyle. Probably Just anyone he has a use for. Anyone working for him or who he has to work for at the time.
