Hello everyone! This is my first post here I'm so happy to have found this place!

As a french-canadian living near Montreal, Quebec, I'm lucky to have access to a wide variety of comics from many sources: american comics from the US, franco-belgian comics from europe, manga translated in both english and french, and even some local talents (the "Paul" series by Michel Rabagliati for example). My local library has a large collection of comics of all kinds and I want to share with you all the most obscure and awesome stuff I can find.

For my first post, I'll start with one of my favorite franco-belgian comics, the goofy office gofer, Gaston Lagaffe.

This dude right here. But first, an introduction and some background information on this character. )

I see that there are (used to be?) some Spirou fans around here. So I thought I'd make a post to mark the 75th anniversary of Spirou as a character, a comic and a magazine (on April 21):

Yes it is! )

I'm one of those European comic fans who only relatively recently started to get into the American comic world, mostly thanks to s_d.
I've been discussing comics with some of my online friends, and I've scanlated for them bits and pieces from a few European comics. I always planned to some day post that stuff in scans_daily, too. So here you go :)

11 pages + cover there, while the full comic is about 60 pages.

I've got scanlations of some other European stuff (Gaston Lagaffe, Lena Furberg comics, Cocco Bill, Benoit Sokal's Canardo) and I've been thinking of posting them some day too.
(Oh and the old s_d had a "bande dessinée" tag. Now there seems to be "medium: manga" and "genre: manga" in the tags, but no tag for BD. If a BD tag is added, should it be called genre or medium?)

In honor of the ongoing Tour de France, here's a taste of a classic Spirou & Fantasio story newly available in English, A Head for Crime by André Franquin (La Mauvaise Tête, 1956, 54pp).

Fantasio freaks out

Since nezchan has been posting great selections from some of the newer Spirou stories in French, I thought people might like to see one of the real classics in English translation.

Z is for Zorglub ("Z comme Zorglub", 1959-60, 61pp) is one of the most popular stories by André Franquin, a man who is to Spirou what Carl Barks is to Donald Duck, or Stan Lee to the Marvel universe.
