    1st Smurfs 1958 Spirou 1071/1072 Club

    Same story indeed. As a kid I grew up watching the cartoons & reading the comics, and I never noticed the difference in color.

    In Robbedoes the Belgian edition is referred to as 1071A, the dutch edition is 1071B. The 1071A version had a Robbedoes-point at page 32, which was often cut out. Other differences can be seen on page 5, 25, 28 and 32.

    - First Smurfs is Spirou 1071 & Robbedoes 1071 - First Smurfs cover is Spirou 1072 & Robbedoes 1072 - Spirou has a Belgian and French edition. - Robbedoes has a Belgian and Dutch edition. Peyo was born in Brussels so I would assume the Belgian versions are considered 'more original'.

    A nice looking copy of "La flûte à six Schtroumpfs" is also available on eBay, this Johan & Pirlouit album was printed in 1960 and is considered to be the first Smurf appearance in a collected edition. The first standalone Smurf comic was printed in 1963 and was called "Les Schtroumpfs Noirs". This story can be found as a "mini-rêcit" in Spirou 1107, readers had to fold the middle pages of the issue and create their own mini version of "Les Schtroumpfs Noirs". So technically the first standalone Smurf comic appeared in 1959. I recently found out this story wasn't released in the USA until 2011 because of the racist undertone, and they made the black Smurf purple. Tintin all over again Spirou 1130, 1147, 1211, 1235, 1244, 2435 and 2438 each contain one of these little comics. In 1963 and later on they got printed as regular comics.

    Using the home advantage I managed to get a copy of each version The name "schtroumpf" is translated to "smurf" in dutch.

    Some of you might be interested in this fun little fact. While the french and walloons were reading Spirou in 1958, the dutch and flemish were reading Robbedoes. Just like Spirou, Robbedoes was printed in 2 versions with different ads. Robbedoes 1071 appeared on the exact same date as Spirou 1071. These magazines are rare to find.
