The projected title and release date of the next Spirou adventure just became public by way of the online retailer BDnet: Le Labyrinthe d’Ibn-Sina (Spirou #54, “Ibn-Sina’s Labyrinth”) should be for sale on 14. November, 2014 – or at least the special edition should. Of course, both the date and the title might change before release.
We had already heard (e.g. here and here) that the story is going to take place in a Middle Eastern country on the brink of civil war, and that it will be an Indiana Jones-style adventure “with hidden temples and deadly labyrinths!” So the title doesn’t really tell us anything new. Still, nice to be able to refer to it by name! (Edit: Quick update to point out that Ibn Sina is the name of the ancient Persian philosopher and all-round genius better known in the West as Avicenna. A sort of Islamic Leonardo da Vinci, he could certainly be who the title is meant to invoke, Da Vinci Code-style.)
The release date implies that the adventure should start serialization in the Journal in the near future, so expect to start hearing more about it soon.
