Interesting that for the English audience, and American ones at that, the publishers would go for having the Black Smurfs be purple, in deference to the cartoon show. But at least, it's finally being published in English. Would like to see The Wild Smurf also get published in English.

There sure are many more non-English books in the series...
[Eek!]

This is the complete collection of Smurf Books (by Dupuis) from the late 1970's - early 1980s. There are only 10 books in this set. Papercutz seems to be following the same look as the old books.

Here's hoping that they keep making more English stories!

I don't have any interest in either The Smurf King (a.k.a. King Smurf) or The Smurfs And The Magic Flute because those were already released in soft-cover format by Random House.

Anyway, does anyone who knows Dutch know what "De Smurfendreiging" translates into in English? The only suitable English title I can give that story is The Evil Clone Smurfs.

I don't speak Dutch... but I looked up "De Smurfendreiging" in the babel fish translator and it says that "dreiging" means "threat" in English. "De Smurfen" is Smurf in Dutch, thus "De Smurfendreiging" could mean Smurf Threat?

Yes, it means threat. I don't own that comic so I can't tell what the story is about.
I plan to buy all these comics, but they're starting hard to find. The older ones are mostly only to be found on auction sites and such.

For those interested, here's the translation for comics no.13 to 28:
13: The little smurfs
14: The flying smurf
15: A kiss for smurfette
16: Babysmurf wants a bear
17: The moneysmurf
18: The jewelsmurfer
19: Doctor smurf
20: The wild smurf
21: The smurf threat
22: Everything smurfs by itself
23: The reportersmurf
24: The gamblesmurfs
25: Smurfsalad
26: A child with the smurfs
27: The book that knows everything
28: The smurf paradise

I do own De Smurfendreiging (Attack Of The Clone Smurfs -- my own title for it), and from what I could tell just from reading the action of the comic book panels, it's mostly about the Smurfs meeting evil copies of themselves which Papa Smurf admits to creating (or somehow unleashing) when he constantly sees his little Smurfs fighting with each other without any end to it, and the evil copies end up capturing their original counterparts and hold them prisoner inside their own village, until Papa Smurf finds a way to erase (or send back) the evil copies from the forest forever.

Glad to see the Smurfs and the Magic Flute will be released. I agree, Sassette. They really should release more English language comics after those first three.

New Reissued Smurf Books this summer

After seeing the pictures posted elsewhere I am elated. Barnes And Noble already have it up for Preorder.

So the new publisher will be Papercut Books?

I hope they add more titles after the first three come out. We should write to them to bring us the ones that never got released here too when they get their website up and running.

This is very encouraging.

Can't wait till Papercutz release this one. We have to send them encouraging emails to make this.

Thanks Swarlock!! Here is the web page:

ARE BACK!
In NEW Graphic Novels from Papercutz!

It all started with these comics! The Smurfs – the beloved cartoon characters, that shot to fame in North America in the '80s, return in this new graphic novel series from Papercutz. The Publisher of the popular BIONICLE, CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED, DISNEY FAIRIES, GERONIMO STILTON, HARDY BOYS, NANCY DREW, and TALES FROM THE CRYPT graphic novels – Papercutz will publish the first two of a new series of SMURF graphic novels in September 2010. A special low-priced $1.00 SMURFS comicbook will be released in July, to promote the graphic novels.

"Not many people realize that the Smurfs originally appeared in comics, specifically in 'La Flute a six SCHTROUMPFS," a Johan et Pirlouit graphic novel series by Peyo in 1958," explains Papercutz Publisher Terry Nantier. They quickly became so popular that after several more guest appearances in Johan et Pirlouit, the Smurfs were awarded their own graphic novel series by Peyo. After an animated movie in 1976, the Smurfs starred in their own Saturday morning TV series on NBC starting in 1981. The series was a blockbuster hit, spawning Smurf-mania and lasting nine seasons. Those shows still run on Cartoon Network's Boomerang channel, and are now available on DVD.

An all-new Smurfs movie, combining live-action and computer-animated Smurfs, is now in production, and set for release in 2011. The Sony/Columbia film stars Neil Patrick Harris, Paul Reubens, Michael Cera, Sofia Vergara, Hank Azaria, Alan Cumming, Jonathan Winters, Katy Perry, and George Lopez.

But it was Peyo's wonderful graphic novels that started it all, and Papercutz is bringing these acclaimed comics back into print after much too-long an absence. "I grew up with these comics, they truly are classics. It's a shame that these books, which have been in print forever everywhere else on Earth, have been out-of-print for so long in America," says Nantier.

"Papercutz is dedicated to publishing the very best comics and graphic novels for audiences of all-ages, so we're thrilled to be publishing one of the best-loved series of graphic novels for all-ages ever created," exclaimed Papercutz Editor-in-Chief Jim Salicrup.

In July, a specially priced $1.00 comicbook will be distributed to comic stores to promote the forthcoming SMURFS graphic novels. It features the classic "Smurfnapper" story by Peyo that introduced the Smurfs' arch foe, the villainous sorcerer Gargamel and his cat, Azrael.

The first Smurfs graphic novels from Papercutz include "The Purple Smurf," which presents a story never published before in English – until now. When a strange fly bites one of the Smurfs, a full-on epidemic erupts. After being bit, a Smurf turns purple, his vocabulary is reduced to one word ("gnap!") and he goes berserk. It's up to Papa Smurf to find a cure before all of the Smurfs lose their minds for good!

Papercutz also presents the first comics story in which the Smurfs ever appeared, "The Smurfs and the Magic Flute." The story takes place in Medieval times, and involves a court jester names Peewit, who lives in a king's castle, discovering a flute that makes anyone who listens to it dance until they collapse from exhaustion. When a thief steals the flute, Peewit must seek out the creators of the flute, the Smurfs, to make an even more powerful flute to combat the thief in this wildly funny story.

Each Smurfs graphic novel is full-color at $5.99 in paperback and $10.99 in hardcover in a 61/2 x 9 inch format. Each book is 56 pages, except "The Smurfs and the Magic Flute," which is 64 pages. December will see the arrival of the third Smurfs graphic novel, "The Smurf King."

"The Purple Smurf"
ISBN: 978-1-59707-206-9 (paperback)
978-1-59707-207-6 (hardcover).
"The Smurfs and the Magic Flute"
ISBN: 978-1-59707-208-3 (paperback)
978-1-59707-209-6 (hardcover).
