Google Doodle: André Franquin's "Gaston Lagaffe" Spirou Magazine

Today's Google Doodle: from Spirou Magazine, it's Belgian cartoonist André Franquin's "Gaston Lagaffe" feature.

The Gaston comic strip is about an accident-prone office janitor. It first appeared in Spirou in 1957. While popular in many countries, only Fantagraphics has reprinted it in the US -- and even then it was a few pages in the 1990s.

I don't see this here in the States, but if you use the French, Belgian or Norwegian version of Google, you get to see the above graphic.
