Cinebook The 9th Art - Newsletter 107 - November 2016

Dear Reader,
This month has a bit of a Grim Reaper flavour to it. In Yakari, our young Sioux goes out to meet the lords of the plains, the mighty buffalo – the very animals his people depend on for food, furs and leather. Can there be friendship between hunter and prey?
In Damocles, Ellie is caught between love and death. Love between partners, love between mother and child ... and death, always threatening her client. Can she protect Ava against her unknown enemies – and at what cost?
Wayne Shelton is an old hand at the adventuring business. He´s cheated death many times. The first time it happened was in Vietnam, during the war. And now that distant past is coming back to haunt him, with a name he´d long thought buried...
Finally there´s Valerian and Laureline, and the two former agents of Galaxity are forced to take any old job these days. Everyone´s got to make a living, but ... is any work acceptable? Could this contract drive a wedge between our two heroes?
November with Cinebook: don´t catch your death – stay in with a good book!
Have we mentioned lately that Luc Besson is adapting Valerian and Laureline for the big screen? Yes? Oh. Well, allow us to reiterate, because, colour us excited, Luc Besson is making a Valerian movie! And the first trailer is out, and full of promise!
Chances are you´ve been exposed to it already, but in case you missed it, here´s a link to your 2.06 minutes of early Spatio-Temporal goodness:

"...a ten issue run and full of gems that very few comic fans know about!"

According to Steve Thomas of The Comic Project "The Black Tower Adventure series is a ten issue run and full of gems that very few comic fans know about!"

Thank You, Steve.  Oh and he is not talking about the 1980s zine version....

He's talking about these.  And he is quite right.  The book was Black Tower's flag-ship title yet it was never pushed or publicised as some other books so....why not?

All the books are A4 with a card cover so are given the European classification of Comic Albums.  All have between 50+ to 80 pages and yet, as part of Black Tower's "fair deal" for comic fans the series all have the same cover price of £7.00 -even the first issue.  Adventure was intended as a springboard for trying out different characters but to provide a good read for those into comics.

Now the details!

In 1984 the A5 (digest sized) Black Tower Adventure first appeared featuring some later-to-be top UK comic book and was a must-read in Small Press circles and sold so well that even the publisher does not have a full run!

The title was put on hiatus in 2007 but in 2010 was relaunched, bigger and better than ever!

This first issue of volume 2 contains: Part 1 of the mega series Return Of The Gods:Twilight Of The Super Heroes which comes in at 43 pages! Thaddeus Twatt In The Twatt-Verse -first part of a truly microscopic titanic tales (which makes sense if you read it!). And those Third Level sorcerers Kotar & Sabuta race to face The Deadly Dilemma Of Sigismund Benfriggisund! The cold war between China and Russia couldn’t get any hotter in the 1980s but one strip that appeared in the new talent comic Preview was The Phoenix Team and that story has been much requested over the years as the team, and the Soviet Red Star Squadron, stumble into The Evil of the Salamander and his master plan.


And more?  Well, of course there is!

Things begin to pick up apace as Thaddeus Twatt and Tomas go on foot to explore The Fearful Fate Of Friggia. Both, naturally, oblivious to the mystery and action that continues in Return Of The Gods:Twilight Of The Super Heroes. In a more, uh, “fun” vein, we learn why using reptilean DNA to replace human limbs might not be a good idea in Out On A Limb!  Of course, when dealing with criminal gangs the Crimson Cowl packs a punchline.

And how could we forget Kotar & Sabuta as they confront...The Ghost! So, you may ask, if you are old enough, “Whatever happened to the 1980s craze for Yucca plants?” Well, we learn the deadly secret in The Day Of The Yucca!

There is also the obligatory “much, much more”!

Things get grim as heroes begin to fall and the truth is realised in Return Of The Gods:Twilight Of The Super Heroes part 3. Lady Sivana and Tarot help Kotar & Sabuta tackle a nasty lycanthrope problem. With things looking VERY grim will Thaddeus Twatt and Tomas escape The Fearful Fate Of Friggia? Ben Dilworth provides not one -not two -THREE Purple Hood strips.

Is there more? Can there possibly be more?  Don’t be silly -YES!!!!!

Krakos takes care of some burglars who have to “take the heat” in a very literal sense!  The Purple Hood deals with a suicide banker so you have to ask how that will turn out?   Kotar & Sabuta rescue a young woman in Antarctica, but what mysterious force took here there and how is it connected to Kotar? The action gathers pace in Return Of The Gods: Twilight of the Super Heroes as more mystery enfolds those taken from Earth…and those on Earth.

Thaddeus Twatt and nephew Tomas land on The Jungle Planet -and it looks as though this could be their deaths as Thaddeus realises too late what has colonised the planet!

The Thinker decides that thinking alone can get a little boring while one of China's Phoenix Team has to deal with..well, you'll see and it’s probably not what you expected!

What more could you ask for? More? You got it!

It's the penultimate part of RETURN OF THE GODS:TWILIGHT OF THE SUPER HEROES and on Earth and in space heroes confront the invading Boarmen! Who will pay the ultimate price for defending the planet and how many will fall on Neo Olympus?

Kotar and Sabuta try to have a quiet night in but..well...you remember they are Third Level Sorcerers with enemies, right?

Xendragon (see Tales of Terror 1)investigates The Legacy of Frankenstein which might not be as straight forward as it sounds.

Thaddeus Twatt and Tomas are held by the Crystallids and we hear of their origins and get a glimpse at how the eccentric scientist may not be all he seems.

Lord of the Flies teaches a very naughty boy a lesson. No school children were harmed in the making of this comic strip.

The Iron Warrior rushes to the rescue down the Amazon way while The Bat (but probably not the one you think) and Reverend Merriwether, God's Demon Thumper put in appearances.

Its 60 pages of Black Tower Action!

Yes!  It's 80 page Giant time! (Well, 81 pages)

The final chapter in Return Of The Gods:Twilight Of The Super Heroes. Everything is finally revealed as the heroes on Neo Olympus mourn their dead and learn that one of their number must also die!  Meanwhile, on Earth, things seem to be turning more favourably….we think.

Thaddeus Twatt has brace himself certain death as his past catches up with him and he faces the Ultimate Crystallid!

The Purple Hood versus The flame! And we don’t mean he has to sort out a chip-pan fire, either.

Whatever Happened To Mark Tyme? A good question because he appears to be lost in time and one German hero, Zeit Meister, survivor from a destroyed parallel Earth, is determined to find him.

Atomic Tommy has a slight alien problem to deal with and the Missing Link  is caught up in it all. 

Dr Sorrow has problems while Ben R. Dilworth takes us back to a re-telling of the origin of Runestone!

It's 80 pulse-pounding pages of graphic delineation! (plus an extra blank page because we’re keeping it real!).

The First part of a new series! How do you follow up Return Of The Gods after many heroes have died while others have gone into seclusion or retirement and yet heroes are needed? "The Cross Earths Caper" is how! And when we say “Cross Earths” we mean the multi-verse, time and space and….buy it and see!

In the final part of the Xendragon story our hero confronts the Legacy of Frankenstein and things could get from very bad to fatally bad. 

And following his confrontation with the Ultimate Crystallid there are tragic if not fatal consequences for Thaddeus Twatt in the final part of The Jungle Planet.


Silvermaigne tracks down a vampyre.  The Thinker over thinks and Dilworth’s re-telling of the origin of Runestone continues apace. Oh. And more.  Well, of course there is!

At last! After cameo appearances in Tales of Terror and one strip over the last twenty years, Herbert Kirby’s THE PHANTOM DETECTIVE returns in two tales to horrify!

Plus, The Thinker...thinks DOOM!  He over stresses at times but we see that as him just being a kind of cosmic pressure release valve (he does tend to fart).  Meanwhile, having discovered the Iron Warrior in the African jungle, three adventurers are about to get a shock that ends in a loud “Bang!”

In the UK a wizened old man offers to give a rather over inebriated Kelvin Nolan his helmet -which creates a few misunderstandings in Kelvin Nolan and His Helmet of Power!  Runestone, with the help of his science pal, George, begins to test the rune stone that has embedded itself in his hand and is in for a few surprises.

In The Cross-Earths Caper (pt.2) Bristol is, quite virtually, The Wild, Wild West Country..and Selenites threaten to destroy Earth with a huge interplanetary cannon. Why?  Well, maybe a misunderstanding but have no fear –Earth’s finest from the 1920s have been unfrozen and are ready to fight. Thought that ought to be mentioned.

This is it!! 

Yes, the one that someone has been waiting for!  It may well have been you but you just never realised it.

Runestone gets to try out his new powers as he faces...The Beast of Exmoor! And believe us this ain’t no puma or leopard.  That might be weird enough but this Beast is a tool of the Celtic dark god himself!

Kelvin Jones gets to try out his shiny Helmet of Power and by this point some may ask if he’s capable of even using a TV remote control.

Our heroes are on a parallel Moon and fighting off Selenites in The Cross Earths Caper! And their new mysterious companion, “Bob” deisplays some super human abilities leading to the question: who the hell is “Bob”??

Kotar has his hands full in a solo adventure while Lady Silana faces a demon of her own. The quest for the Iron Warrior continues in the Amazon and this one has a few surprises for our lady adventurers.


There is a prequel to two British Golden Age comic strips in Return To Lost Man's Gulch and more...including The Thinker and The Phantom Detective -all in the UKs TOP SUPER HERO-ACTION COMIC!

The 10th and final issue of volume 2!

Our three lady adventurers are in the Amazon and have encountered the ape-men but are they ready for Rodney Dearth and his Iron Warrior to return?

The Cross Earths Caper concludes and for one hero it is the parting of the ways and two others face life altering situations and many months away…only to find on their Earth they were hardly gone a few seconds.  Ben Dilworth concludes the re-telling of Runestone's origin.


There are lots of other goodies and this issue guest stars a gun-toting crime-buster that Elliott Ness would love - The Clock! Sit back and read Ben Dilworth’s crime-busting tale –it’s far better for you than the internet! Its just too much fun!

More fun than Ya Ya Han.

It's Wednesday Morning. It's -1 Degree. I Just Destroyed Another Planet.


Disclaimer: in stating "I Just Destroyed Another Planet" I should make it clear that I refer to a planet in a comic strip. Any aliens or law enforcement officers working on behalf of Galactic Councils or similar bodies, should not assume that I am in any way responsible for the destruction of any real planet in this or any other portion of the multiverse. It was funny when I wrote it but I now understand that to survivors of home planets that were destroyed while they were away it is not funny. My apologies.

Hmm. It IS A Request I Might Consider But....

...let me first make it clear the request is not for me to shoot/drown (done that. NOT fun)/hang or overdose on laxative chocolates.  But that last one....what a way to go -and someone else has to clean up!

Gerd, via the now defunct (yeah, he's not told me why he messaged from there rather than just email me or leave a comment here) Yahoo Eurocomics Group, asked why I do "not look at comics from countries other than France or Germany?"

I've already mentioned that it is a lot of work to just spend hours on the net looking for "Danish Comics" or "Spanish Comics" and even if I did find links I'd have to translate.  As with some French BD that can take a day.  Also look at the fact that nearly every country in Europe provides views for CBO.  It might be easy to start with, say, Eire, then move to Belgium and then the Netherlands but without sources or seeing comics it would simply be "Here is an comic cover from Eire" and so on.

I have touched on Russian comics but I have no idea what is being published there in 2016 so my posts are all based on my collection from childrens comics to Tarzan.  I don't even have a copy of the Red Star Squadron "Salamander" story that was translated into Russian in 1989 but as a Small Press comic.  My copy vanished in the 1990s.

The Ukraine.  Again, another country providing a high number of views but I can't find anything on comics there.

Also...well, I could go on. My German can handle web sites and my French is "piss poor" but I get by.  India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, China, etc., I have done posts on before in the past and I know about comics there but keeping up-to-date on new books is near impossible because of costs and I definitely do not click on download file links sent to me by people I do not know!

So, I try but I'd need a very high salary to buy and look over comics from outside the UK. CBO is not a high salaried job!

I'll try when I can but after 17 years no CBO viewer has ever forwarded links to comic web sites in their countries so it's a low priority.  But haven't I covered enough for regulars who do not pay but read and move on?

Why I Do Not Think D-Gruppe Will Get A German Language Translation

As the "Other Other Guy" (that's how I'm referring to him!) ran those German comics postings I did receive a couple of comments from members of my Yahoo Groups.  They had read the posts but were a bit confused as the below cover never appeared.
So an explanation. Not sure how much longer I'll be on the internet and there are other concerns far more important than CBO, the internet or comics (hey, no reader loyalty or support so I'm not that bothered).

This is how it goes. The above cover was intended for a German language version of the D-Gruppe The Zeit Geist Saga trade an for sale at German comic events in 2017.  Two problems arose.  The main one was that after the idiotic Brexit vote, all contact from German organisers, etc., stopped. In part this may have been fuelled by their anger at anyone from the UK because, as in many EU countries, the press/media and even politicians told some horrendous lies about the UK contribution to the EU which was basically "taking everything but contributing nothing" -ignoring the fact that one problem that brought about the Brexit vote was the large amount the UK contributes to the EU.

My mother's family is German. I am pro-Europe and if I pushed French, German and other European comics anymore people would think I was being paid!  That, however, did not stop the idiots from seeing me as "English and anti-EU".  Paying for a translation of a 100+ pages book into German with nowhere to sell it....that was the second problem.  So a rough cover was put together and the reason it was not used in those last postings is because Frank never had a scan and it was "business" that wasn't happening.

I would like to see the book translated and published in German but I am not in the position to do so and the only version is the English language one on the online store http://www.lulu.com/shop/terry-hooper-scharf/d-gruppe-the-zeit-geist-saga/paperback/product-21156613.html

If I do not seem to cover European comics much it is because companies seem to have frozen out the UK. There are at least two who publish their books in English but will only market/sell them in the United States not the UK (I know that means they miss getting their books seen by thousands of American readers each week but sending me review books is not law!).

And I have just heard from Tomppa, the creator of Der engel, to tell me that issues other than those featured in the blog posts have appeared -and he'll send me copies.

I wish Small Publishers in the Nederlands, Belgium and elsewhere were as helpful -I'm still trying to see whether Windmill Comics is still going (Netherlands publisher).

Now, off to gather some nuts....for birds, not me!

Cinebook The 9th Art Delays -The Company Is Still There!

Yes, the last Cinebook The 9th Art book reviews were back at the end of September/beginning October.  No, Cinebook has not gone out of business and is not preparing to take business back to France after Brexit (as far as I know and am told).

You do know they have a web site you can check?  Face Book page? You can ask them things.

There is a big delay as owner Olivier Cadic is involved in French Senatorial duties and travelling. Things seem to be about two months behind at the moment. This does not bode well.  M. Cadic has been quite vocal and open about French EU citizens getting their businesses back to France after Brexit and, yes, he is busy with his political work.  However, I think a few of us thought that the comic album publishing business was handed over to someone else. Comics take second place to a busy political schedule and when company supporters hear nothing (I receive no responses to emails sent to  M. Cadic these days) you can bet rumours will start.

So if you've read the various comments made by people on 'forums' -ignore them.  They know far less than I do.  I do understand Cinebook fans get worried though!
