Contrary to the two most famous albums of the series “Le Spirou de …”, Panique en Atlantique (2010) by Lewis Trondheim and Fabrice Parme apparently does not allude to history at all. Focusing on some examples such as the one of the tunnel created by Spirou to join two sunk ships and save their passengers, I show how Trondheim uses these images of the tunnel to bridge two “comics worlds” (Beaty) too often presented as sealed off, in particular during the contentious years of the 2005–2010 “crisis-panic” of L’Association with, on the one side, the old-fashioned world of classic Franco-Belgian comics and on the other, the not-so-new-anymore world of L’Association. Hence, Trondheim illustrates with humor how an adventure of Spirou can be read as a bridge between comics and memory.
