Daily Heroine: Yoko Tsuno

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Yoko Tsuno, the adventurous engineer from an ongoing series of “comics albums”, created by Belgian comic artist Roger Leloup. According to Wikipedia, The Yoko Tsuno series currently consists of nearly thirty albums (plus a novel), the first of which was published in 1972. Once again, this is a series I’ve only just scratched the surface of, but I find it quite appealing. Its art style and plots are very reminiscent of The Adventures of Tintin, which I’ve always been a big fan of. And that is not surprising when you consider that Mr Leloup worked for HergΓ© (Tintin’s creator) early in his career. So I guess Yoko Tsuno can be considered a spiritual successor to Tintin.πŸ™‚

The cover you can see is from the first album of the Cinebook edition of the Yoko Tsuno series, titled On the Edge of Life, which was first published in 2007. However, chronologically the first album is actually The Curious Trio. For some reason, Cinebook is publishing the series out of order.

I’m always on the look out for new interesting and likeable heroines, so if you have a particular favourite, please tell me about her! Till tomorrow, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you.😊

So although I’m not really into American comics, I have been interested in this particular film ever since I saw the teaser trailer for it earlier this year.

New Fan Art: WW

I’m not really a big fan of the DC Comics universe, but last week I went to see the new Wonder Woman film, starring Gal Gadot and I have to say I was reasonably impressed. It had a great balance of humour, emotion and action and it was quite entertaining.Β  It’s definitely one of the better superhero films I’ve seen. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
