You must read the wonderful writeup by Jog over at The Savage Critic about the comics that this very saccharine and watered-down episode of the Smurfs is based on. Amazing stuff. There’s a lot of about Belgium and it’s rich comics history that I’m very ignorant of. Mainly, the political climate that a lot of their greatest work was created in. Very great blog post, you owe yourself the time to read it!

Can’t wait to share this one with Beatrix…
