Cinebook Newsletter 68 - August 2013

Dear Reader,
This month we have a treat for you, something that many of you have been asking for ever since we started translating “Spirou & Fantasio”. With The Marsupilami Thieves, we’re bringing you for the first time one of comic legend André Franquin’s “Spirou” stories. Franquin, an incredibly influential figure of Franco-Belgian comics, was at the series helm for 23 years, and his time is considered by some to be its golden age. You can now judge for yourself!

The Marsupilami, a mysterious animal that Spirou and Fantasio discovered in the jungle of Palombia, now resides in their local zoo.
