TROMBONE ILLUSTRE was a very unusual ‘mini’ comic-magazine attached to the famous comic strip weekly magazine SPIROU. it was published by belgian EDITIONS DUPUIS, starting in march 1977. comic legends like HAUSMAN, LOUP, FRANQUIN, GOTLIB and DELPORTE contributed drawings and short strips. the content of the weekly eight pages was a bit more adult than the usual comic strips at that time. later, that was surpassed by the french comic magazine MORMOIL. below some cover illustrations by the master, ANDRE FRANQUIN.
