Cinebook The 9th Art Newsletter 104 - August 2016


Dear Reader,
This month was placed under the five-ringed sign of the Olympics, and for most of us poor mortals, watching the athletes compete is in itself exhausting. We therefore prescribe a strict regimen of lying down with a good book - and we even offer a selection...
Starting with the usual antics of despicable villain Iznogoud, who once again stops at nothing to become caliph instead of the caliph. Scandals, bribery, hauntings, even recruiting the worst murderers from History... It´s like an ancient pentathlon of evil, with the worst competitor ever!
In Damocles, Ellie Braxton is given a new mission: protecting the head of a medically assisted procreation company. But protecting her from whom? Is the threat due to how wealthy the clients are? To morality issues? Or to something more personal...?
While Tess Chaykin continues to look into the Templar connection, the FBI is trying to track down the four men who attacked the Museum. It´s a losing battle, though – someone is one step ahead of Special Agent Reilly and eliminating the suspects one by one. Can the two of them uncover the secret of The Last Templar?
Finally, Lucky Luke gets the ultimate consecration: being immortalised in a folk song! The Ballad of the Daltons is a tale of thrilling heroics, unrepentant evil and astounding stupidity – not to mention a laugh a minute!
August with Cinebook – just what the doctor ordered!
Missing the first volume of Blake & Mortimer? Fear not, we´ve got you covered – The Yellow Mis now getting its 5th print run. Excellent opportunity to acquire this classic of Franco-Belgian comics – or perhaps get a friend to discover it!

I Want to be Caliph Instead of the Caliph
An obsession, a leitmotiv, the quest of a lifetime... That is what it is to Iznogoud – becoming caliph instead of the caliph. And that is why he will stop at nothing. A ghost that drives caliphs – and only caliphs – insane? Worth a try... Read more

Morris & Goscinny and Greg
The Ballad of the Daltons
