    Thanks for the Corto Maltese suggestions. I just finished reading The ballad of the salt sea and I've got to say that I loved every single page of it. It was an adventure from beginning to end. I was afraid it would be some standard pirate story, but I got so much more than that... Maori mythology, the tension of war, a coming of age story, excellent art etc. I'm a fan now!

    Default Asterix 35 almost finished

    Asterix volume 35 is almost finished it seems. Uderzo stopped drawing and writing so it'll be interesting to see what the new writer and artist will make of it. Both Didier Conrad en Jean-Yves Ferri have Uderzo's blessings so I know I can't wait. Hopefully it will be better than what Uderzo did on his own for the last couple of albums, since those were a bit meh.

    Here's a video with English subtitles:

    ^Hmmm... interesting. I'm just now reading Asterix; buying the omnibus versions as they come out. Wonder how long it'll take from the release of this new one to the release of an English translation.

    Read and loved my first Valerian and Yoko Tsuno albums (especially the art on Valerian). You just have to hand it to Cinebook for publishing this huge amount of previously untranslated European comics. But speaking of other publishers licensing European material, this caught my eye:

    I just found out Asterix 35 will be released on 24 October in all countries worldwide where the series is available in translation. How cool is that?

    That's the one more recommendation I needed for Pour L'Empire. Flicked through it in the shop last week and I loved Vives' art in that book.

    Anyone mentioned "I see a darkness" by Reinhard Kleist? The Comic Biography of Johnny Cash?

    A great read!

    Just finished reading Une nuit a Rome (A night in Rome) and had a truly great time reading through all 96 pages of this two parter!! RaphaŽl is the main character in the book. He is about to turn 40 and his girlfriend throws him a surprise party. He gets lots of presents and a VHS tape that was delivered a few days ago. He pops it in his neighbours antique VHS-player and on it he finds himself with a girl when they're 20. The girl, Marie, is the same age as RaphaŽl and on the video in all their naivety they promise each other that no matter what they will meet again in 20 years when both of them turn 40... in Rome. Marie broke his heart a few times in his early twenties so will he keep his end of the promise?

    Creator Jim wrote a very relatable story (in a way) with very likable characters. The dialogue is very witty and cracked me up quite a few times. Man this book is sexy too and I recommend everyone to pick this up. Only in French and Dutch now, but is also announced for a German release by Splitter. This book is so good no wonder it will be turned into a (French) movie!

    Check the 31-page preview http://www.bdgest.com/preview-1113-B...me-tome-1.html
