Liquor of Life is a mysterious liquid which the Maestro owns a bottle of. If one sprays a drawing with Liquor of Life, its subject comes alive — rather like a Toon, except that he will appear fully flesh-and-blood. Spirou was created in this fashion in 1938.
Behind the scenesEdit
Liquor of Life appears in the first-ever Spirou comic, The Birth of Spirou. In the original French, its nature is a pun, as "eau de vie" (literally "water of life") is actually a poetic name for calvados.
