The year is winding down, and this might be the last publications update until 2014. Dupuis addresses the problems with the Gaston box set, Finland sees its first Spirou collected edition book, and future one-shots are hinted at…
Having discussed the publications that came out in the last three weeks, let’s look at news of upcoming releases. Along with a few delays and long waits, there is also some good news.
Last week brought no updates on the publication front, but there are a few things to report from this week. A special edition is released, a one-shot is delayed, and there are details on the Gaston box set and a book about Jijé.
Not a whole lot on the publications front this week. Well, lots of small things, but hardly anything major. Still, read on if you want to know what’s been happening…
Last week, ActuaBD published a short but fascinating interview with Émile Bravo by Christian Missia Dio, where the artist talks about the continuation of Journal d’un ingénu and how he sees Spirou. There is also some discussion of the cartoon adaptation of My Mommy Is in America and She Met Buffalo Bill, a half-comic, half-picture book by Bravo and Jean Regnaud. The film opened in cinemas across France yesterday. If you can read French (or can use Google Translate), you should definitely click over to ActuaBD. If you can’t, here are some of the highlights of the interview.
The Danish release of Émile Bravo’s Spirou one-shot follows hot on the heels of news of its sequel(s!), along with rumors of two other future Spirou albums, and more.
With releases by Chaland and Tome & Janry, and the announcement of a classic Yann & Conrad series, this is a good week for fans of the 80s! Or if that isn’t retro enough, how about Jijé and the Danish Journal d’un ingénu? Plus more!
This week we have the announcement of a new Spirou album in English, an upcoming short story by Yoann & Vehlmann, news on a long-planned one-shot, and more details on soon-to-be released books.
Since publishing schedules are always in flux, and pretty much every week brings new releases or news of some change, a semi-regular update column might be helpful to keep track of it all. (And make it easier to ignore for visitors who don’t care.)
