The ghost of Rue de SablesIt is the mission of the Marc Sleen Foundation to preserve and promote the works of this exceptional author. This includes new translations and new editions of less known works of Marc Sleen.

In consultation with the Marc Sleen Foundation a re-edition of the album Het spook uit de Zandstraat (1996) (literally: “The ghost of Rue de Sables”) has been prepared. The story has the building of the Marc Sleen Museum-to-be for a setting for an important part of the story. Moreover it was in Rue des Sables where Sleen’s most famous spiritual child Nibbs first saw the light in 1947, while Marc Sleen was working there as a political cartoonist and illustrator.

For this special edition of the Sleen Foundation Dirk Stallaert has created a new cover with the Sleen Museum for a background.

This album is available in English (November 2010), Dutch and French.
