'La Lumière de Bornéo' FR covers, regular and tirage luxe ("The Light from Borneo"; ill. Frank Pé & Zidrou; Copyright (c) 2016 Dupuis and the artists; image from dupuis.com)

The serialization of La Lumière de Bornéo (“The Light from Borneo”) continues apace, and Dupuis have now added the album, set to be released on 7. October, to their website. There are two versions: the regular album edition, now with a new cover, and a special deluxe edition for collectors. Interestingly, the length of the two books are given as 92 and 168 pages, while the story is supposed to be “only” 82 pages long, so even the regular edition may include some extras.

Here are the two covers in full resolution, as well as the earlier working version of the cover and a set of photos of Frank Pé painting in a Paris café, before an audience of French and Belgian book sellers (posted to Facebook by Dupuis a while ago):

    I’m seeing the images, but they take a while to load, with the different color layers appearing in stages…

      Thanks, Håkan. I see now that the gallery isn’t linking to the full-resolution version of the covers, either. (Which, to be fair, are absurdly big! Delete the resolution bit at the end of each filename to see the full versions.)

      I’m not sure whether it’s the size or if there’s some glitch in the file format or what, but in any case it’s odd that it should affect the main header image, which has been downscaled to reasonable dimensions and re-saved.

      But apparently it works now, so all is good!

    According to the dates given on the site below, 10 oneshots have been released so far in French (I do not understand French, but I noticed the dates given). Have the last two been translated to Danish or some other language so far?
