The Smurfs comics - 1996/7

From 1996 here's issue 1 (November 1996) of 'The Smurfs' comic from DeVere Entertainment
32 pages in total
It contains the following comic strips by Peyou:
a). The Smurfosaurus (8 pages long)
b). The baby owl (8 pages long)
c). Lazy Smurf sets to work (1 page)


Issue 2, the Smurfs comic (December 1996)
cover not to hand

Issue 3, the Smurfs comic (January 1997)
cover not to hand

Issue 4, the Smurfs comic (February 1997)
32 pages in total
It contains the following comic strips by Peyou:
a). The little blue bunny (8 pages)
b). The warm-hearted Smurf (text story, 2 pages)
c). The Smurf's little kitten (8 pages)
d). Bloomin' lovely! (1 page)


Issue 5, the Smurfs comic (March 1997)
32 pages in total
It contains the following comic strips by Peyou:
a). All's well (8 pages)
b). The nothing machine (text story, 2 pages)
c). The DIY Smurf (8 pages)
d). That's ice...


The series then appears to have been re-booted / re-numbered (the inside front page refers to this as "volume 2, number 1") - again, I'd love to know how long this lasted...it's from 1997 but is otherwise undated

So this issue 1 is from 1997, but is also published by DeVere, the price had been reduced down to £1.25 (from £1.85) but the page count is down to 24 pages (from 32) and the paper is cheaper.
Stories by Peyou are as follows:
a). Shake and fly! (8 pages)
b). The edelweiss (text story, 2 pages)
c). Food for thought (1 page)
