And if all that wasn’t enough, there are dozens of gag-filled Smurfs comic strips, another adventure of Johan, in which the gallant court page must battle “The Master of Roucybeuf,” and an action-packed Benny Breakiron epic where the tiny, super-powered French boy encounters “Madame Adolphine,” a seeming harmless little old lady, who apparently is behind a major criminal caper!
