It’s a machine uprising in Champignac!

When an unscrupulous shopkeeper settles a debt with Fantasio by offering him a mysterious ‘gizmo’, the reporter has no idea how much trouble is following in the thing’s wake. It turns out to be a sort of robot that soon takes our heroes on a mad chase leading to Champignac - and an equally mysterious young woman sequestered in a cellar. And as if that wasn’t enough, every electrical appliance in town seems to be going haywire …

Key Points:
  • The Spirou character was created in 1938 and is still hugely successful around the world
  • Published in English for the first time
  • Adapted into video game and manga format
  • More than 20 million copies sold to date
  • An average of 200,000 copies sold each year
Andre Franquin took the Spirou and Fantasio reins after the end of the Second World War, from the hands of Jije. For 20 years Franquin continued to create the series' mythology until the era of Will, Jean Roba and then Jean-Claude Fournier.

'With long running series it’s all too easy to benchmark the series creators or the person who really established the characters and claim all successors fall short of those standards. Based on what’s been translated into English so far, Tome and Janry generally match the work of André Franquin, and at their best, they considerably exceed it'. Frank Plowright [The Slings and Arrows Graphic Novel Guide]

'The gags fly at such a pace that you'll do well rereading the book and scanning each picture for off-the-cuff eyeball kicks' [JT Lindroos on Spirou & Fantasio in New York, FA The Comiczine].

'Easily accessible to readers of all ages and drawn with all the beguiling style and seductive but wholesome élan which makes Asterix, Lucky Luke, The Bluecoats and Iznogoud so compelling, this is a true and enduring landmark tale from a long line of superb exploits, certain to be as much a household name as those series ...' Win Wiacek [Now Hear This!]
