Collectors and enthusiasts, your attention please! The Dupuis company offer a first assembly of the “Buck Danny” short stories published in the Risque-Tout and Spirou magazines from 1946 to 1969.
Buck Danny in Spirou and Risque-Tout
Dive in the nostalgia of the first story created by the duo Charlier-Hubinon “L’agonie du Bismarck”, brought to life with a new lettering. Watch the documentary “Pilote de tourisme” but also “Duel dans le ciel” where Buck confronts Colonel Ramirez during a demonstration of the F-84F Thunderstreak in San Bolivar.
Remember how Buck saves the Seetoya base dam in “Mission spéciale” and prevents bandits from taking the Convair B-36 Peacemaker in “On a volé un prototype”. Did you know that “Vétéran de l’USAF ” was the first draft of Spirou’s “Mini-Tales”? It marked the beginning of a new format used to entertain the newspaper’s readers.
Finally, find “Une incroyable histoire” with the appearance of the lazy and accident-prone office junior, Gaston Lagaffe, at the controls of a Grumman F-11 Tiger, and “Prototype X-6432589”.
