The dream holidays turn into a nightmare for Spirou and Fantasio ...

An old seaplane skims the waves over the Pacific. Onboard are Vito Cortizone, former Don of the New York Mafia forced into early retirement by Spirou and Fantasio; Von Schnabbel, unscrupulous pilot; and a mysterious cargo supposed to turn Cortizone's fortunes around. But the mafioso is cursed with terrible luck, and the plane ends up at the bottom of an isolated island's lagoon. When two months later a sailing boat arrives, an unrecognisable Vito sees none other than our two adventurer-reporters come ashore!

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.

A Classic Franco-Belgian Series as Popular as Asterix and Tintin

'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!]
