Le Grand Prix

Le Grand Prix

“Cocochamps” carries strong echoes of the Belgian circuit of Francorchamps. Franquin remembers it well: “The car-race in “Spirou et les héritiers” was inspired by the Grand Prix at Francorchamps that I attended during the Fangio years. I drew fake Ferraris and Lancias.” The laying of colour by digital process, based on the indications left by Franquin, restores to their original quality all the nuances of colour seen in the cover binding of the “Spirou” journal n° 39 (1952).
