The archives of the editorial offices of the handsome Journal de Spirou are reorganized by Gaston in the interests of the art of the nap. Franquin recalls that this image of calm was drawn at a time when his morale was at a low ebb. Franquin’s old accomplice, Yvan Delporte, sees in it an attempt to return to the calm of the womb. Moreover, Franquin was not deceived by appearances and would protest vehemently in defence of his hapless character whenever Gaston was called a layabout. “Gaston is a great worker. He’s terribly lazy when it comes to filing documents for Dupuis, but if we take all his inventions into consideration, we realize that he’s a real dynamo.”
