Little Fantasio - Valentine's Day Special

Here are the three new pages of The heroic youth of Fantasio I mentioned two days ago. I have to admit, I'm a bit disappointed this time. For a story about Fantasio, there's not very much Fantasio in there. In fact, half of the three pages deal with yet another one of Tarrin's "100% true" stories about one of his hysterical ex-girlfriends. I usually enjoy these stories when he tells them using his Lemur character, but bringing his personal relationship drama into the Spirou & Fantasio universe just seems out of place to me. (And reading the comments he received after posting the first page of this comic on his blog, it seems I'm not the only one who feels this way.)
One thing I did enjoy though was the cameo of a certain S&F character you should be very much familiar with, if you've been reading my translation of the The Crypt of Champignac.

  1. Goodness, but he draws Fantasio so cute <3
    I hope there's more Fantasio in the next pages because I'm really enjoying these! thank you for translating them.

    1. I'm glad you like it. :)

      I really hope this'll become a series!

  2. Ahh thank you so much for posting these! I live in America and it's pretty hard to get my hands on stuff that runs in the actual serial (I'm still scouring for Emile Bravo's little extra bit that ran when le Journal d'Un Ingenu came out...)
    I'm a huge fan of Tarrin's Spirou @__@
    Anyway, I'm gonna keep an eye on this blog. It's so refreshing to find English fans of BDs!

  3. you're an angel for posting these, they're great! Thank you so much for your translations!
