With a second Smurfs feature film on the way, Papercutz has been celebrating the diminutive blue guys with a series of reprints of their original tales. Created by artist Peyo, the Smurfs remain best sellers to multiple generations around the world. An impressive introduction to the world of comics.
The latest volume, The Aerosmurf, features five complete stories from the earliest days of Smurf history. In the title story, Flying Smurf longs to be the very first of the mushroom-dwelling Smurfs to travel through the sky. Helping him bring this fascination with flight to fruition is his friend Handy Smurf. But as always, those dreams are filled with trouble.
The $5.99 issue, featuring this story from the original French-language 14th volume in the series, is due out next week.
