Cinebook Newsletter

Dear Reader,
Ghosts from the past are the flavour of this month. For Blake and Mortimer, it seems to be almost literally – a mysterious, shadowy figure is prowling the halls of the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, and its actions seem to be linked to Captain Blake’s youth…
In Barracuda, it’s an old enemy of Mr Flynn’s who shows up at Puerto Blanco with murder in his heart. The delicate balance of power on the island is going to be disrupted, with serious consequences for Emilio, Maria and Raffy…
For Largo, it’s a case of the sins of the father, as a member of the W Group’s old guard is murdered before his very eyes, prompting an investigation that will lead to Switzerland and the Black Sea.
Finally, time-travelling agent Valerian hops from one period of history to another, doing what action heroes do and… well, dying a lot, too. A good thing Laureline is there to back him up…

Three years have passed in Puerto Blanco, and there has been no news of the Barracuda. Emilio, still passing himself off as a woman, has been learning the art of fencing from Mr Flynn. Maria, now married to the slave merchant Ferrango, makes her husband’s existence a living hell. As for Raffy, being left behind by his pirate father has hit him hard… Read more

Fresh from his old pilot Freddy’s wedding, Largo is back in New York for more celebrating – the departure of one of his employees. But during the party, a Turkish national permanently retires Sir Basil with a couple of bullets. Shortly thereafter, the shooter himself is killed by a sniper before he’s had a chance to say a word… Read more
