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!
