Sooo… It has been almost half a year since the last proper Publications Update, and increasingly dated “news” has been piling up like the urgent mail in Gaston’s office. Anyway, let’s get it over with! If you’re keen to see Zorglub or Gaston in English, the original pages from Tome & Janry’s albums, or the latest one-shots in just about every language the series is published in, there’s good news… Continue reading »

Munuera has been posting some image from the work on his upcoming one-shot, La Fille de Zorglub (“Zorglub’s Daughter”) to Facebook, including this half-page:

'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):

Dufaux is a writer and Durieux primarily an illustrator, but the two projects appear to be separate. Continue reading »
