Hi, can any one tell me which order the new colour Quick & Flupke (French) go in? or is there any particular order? if not what are the dates when they were published? ... Thanks.

Quick and Flupke aren't meant to go in any order. They're not a story like Tintin but a collection of comedy strip cartoons from Le Petit Vingtième.

The current collection of Quick & Flupke books available in French go like this:

Haute Tension
Jeux Interdits
Tout Va Bien
Toutes Voiles Dehors
Chacun Son Tour
Pas de Quartier
Pardon Madame
Vive Le Progres
Catastrophe
Farces et Attrapes
Coups de Bluff
Attachez vos Ceintures

As finlay said, they're not meant to go in any order, but several 'skits' follow up on previous ones. For example, in 'Pardon Madame', which I have, there are four two-page stories about how Flupke wastes his money buying a lottery ticket and the lesson he learns from it. Others are simply one-end gags.

The earliest actual strips were published in Le Petit Vingtieme, and a few were actually drawn for Tintin Magazine years later. You can easily tell the difference, particularly in the level of crudeness of Herge's drawings of people, especially their facial features (stub noses are very common), which decreases over time.

Many of the Quick and Flupke stories are very amusing, and it offers a look at another side of Herge's creative energy and proves wrong, as some have unjustly said, that Herge didn't know how to inject humor into his cartoons.

I forgot the name of the book, but the gag "The World as Flupke would Like it" is in three parts, in a total of six pages.
