The third book by Yann that I've read in about as many weeks. He always delivers above average scripts and sometimes even brilliant ones. This is one of the latter, in my opinion. The album is part of the separate series Le Spirou de..." ("A Spirou story by..."), formerly Une aventure de Spirou et Fantasio par... ("A Spirou and Fantasio adventure by..."), a what-if scenario executed by different artists or team of artists for each album.

My quick thoughts:

Writer, Yann, is in top form here (isn't he always?). As to be expected when written by Yann, it's well-written and researched. Furthermore, he writes Splint & Co. AKA Spirou and Fantasio (a comics series that debuted in 1938) so very well. Flawless!

This is my introduction to artist, Olivier Schwartz, and he too does an amazing job; the historical detail is flawless and I loved that he and Yann pays a great deal of tributes to Herge's Tintin within this.

There’s also a tri

Una delicia para los devoradores de comic europeo. Hay que pararse en cada viñeta porque el libro está salpicado de referencias a muchos otros comics.
