I myself had first met the Smurfs (Les Schtroumpfs) at the age of 7, in 1975, when my parents had bought and brought home for me to read an issue of the Turkish children's weekly magazine Doğan Kardeş; the Smurfs was one of the several color comics being serialized there. I was immediately fascinated by it and have remained so to this day, now having a sizeable Smurfs collection of both the Turkish and the original French editions. The idea of reading back them in chronological order of their original publication dates and making an online blog out of this was in my mind for some time, but, naturally, life had been intervening. Now, I take the worldwide release of the movie The Smurfs 2 during this summer vacation as a trigger to finally start this blog. Hope you'll enjoy it...

  1. Was/is(? I dare hope) Dogan Kardes a pretty famous comic in Turkey? I'm trying to compile a list of the most famous comics from every country, though it's only one of many side projects and very slow going XD:
