Comic strip IMPRO Match
SPIROU vs FLUIDE GLACIAL: the clash !
The last few months have seen a strange tension dictate relations between SPIROU and FLUIDE GLACIAL, two monuments of the comic strip periodical press. Thierry Tinlot, former editor-in-chief of both comic institutions, has a privileged insight into the conflict and is offering an improv match at the Brussels Comic Strip Festival! There’s only one way to attack this subject: with humour! Comedians and illustrators will defend the honours of both magazines. Berco and Munuera have been talked about for team Spirou, with Jean-Christophe Chauzy and Ju CDM representing Fluide… that’s if the magazines haven’t torn each other apart before then!
In collaboration with the Ligue d’Improvisation Belge Professionnelle.
Time and venue: Saturday 15 September at 18:00 - Salle M de BOZAR
Price: €9 for adults and €6 for -12s

“Childhood friends Pierrot, Mimile and Antoine, are now 70 years old and have realised that getting old was the only way to not die and are determined to do it in style! Their reunion at Antoine’s wife Lucette’s funeral, is short-lived… Antoine comes across a letter that makes him lose his head! Without any explanation to his friends, he leaves their hometown in the Tarn and heads to Tuscanny. Pierrot, Mimile and Sophie, Antoine’s granddaughter, who is heavily pregnant, chase after him in the hope of stopping him from committing a crime of passion, fifty years after the event!”
