The Smurfs’ eternal arch foe, the evil wizard Gargamel, is the center of attention in several Smurf-stories: “Gargamel and the Crocodile,” features Gargamel’s attempts to raise a pet crocodile, much to Azrael’s chagrin; Gourmelin, “Gargamel’s Twin Brother” also stops by for a visit; a very hungry fellow returns and demands Gargamel to feed him in “The Ogre and the Smurfs;” a very noisy bird keeps makes Gargamel’s life difficult in “The Smurfs and the Booglooboo;” then there’s “Gargamel’s Nephews” who look like three pint-size Gargamels, who stir up some trouble when they visit their uncle; and just when you think you’ve met all of Gargamel’s look-alike relatives, “Sagratamabarb” shows up and wants to move next door to his cousin Gargamel! 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!
Another iconic Smurf, The Smurf Apprentice, gets the Anthology treatment! A smurf wants to emulate Papa Smurf, and decides the best way to do so would be to practice magic. So, the smurf sneaks into Gargamel's lab and steals instructions for a magic potion. The smurf foolishly drinks the potion and is turned into a monstrous lizard that all of the smurfs fear. Can Papa Smurf create an antidote? Or will the Smurfs be seeing green for the rest of their lives? The Smurfs have delighted us all with their silliness, bravery, heroism, and heart for over 50 years, and now we finally have a definitive collection of Peyo's original comics to see where it all began.
An all-new collection featuring The Smurfs, and their friends! In this first volume Benny Breakiron returns in "Bodoni Circus," Johan & Peewit embark on a never-before-seen adventure, and the Smurfs return with comic strips galore. This is a collection Peyo fans will not want to miss, and that will look great on any bookshelf.
When Papa Smurf is away, the Smurfs will play! Handy Smurf has invented some machines to ease the burden of the hard-working Smurfs (not including Lazy Smurf!). Soon, the whole Village is interested in these inventions that improve the quality of life. Seduced by the easy life, The Smurfs rely more and more on these robots to perform their daily tasks, however small they may be. Will the Village survive the occupation of these high-functioning robots?
The Templar Guardians have been locked away for millennia, but they have a VERY clear idea of what they need to do next--and of all the Lanterns in the universe, they need a reluctant Kyle Rayner's help. But once he sees the strange anomaly lurking at the edge of the universe, he may have no choice but to get on board with their mission. Witness the beginnings of the next major Green Lantern villain in this landmark volume in GL lore with GREEN LANTERN: NEW GUARDIANS VOL. 4. Collects GREEN LANTERN: NEW GUARDIANS #21-24, GREEN LANTERN #23, GREEN LANTERN ANNUAL #2, GREEN LANTERN CORPS #24 and RED LANTERNS #24, which includes the entire "Lights Out" crossover event.
