Dear Reader,
Ends and new beginnings this month. First, we bring you the 7th and final volume of the gorgeous Complete Collection of Valerian, packed full of ground-breaking sci-fi as usual. Are your shelves groaning under the weight yet?
But science-fiction fans need not worry, for we also debut a new series written by Leo, creator of The Worlds of Aldebaran, and illustrated by Icar: Distant Worlds, a self-contained story in five volumes, distinct from Aldebaran – although readers will recognise Leo's gift for creating strange extra-terrestrial creatures and ecosystems. A lost father, An adventurous young man and a planet-wide mystery – what more does anyone need?
Then it's the return of Largo Winch, but with a new writer at the helm: Eric Giacometti, veteran novelist and reporter, takes over from Jean Van Hamme, and does it in style, bringing Largo up to date on 21st century financial practices – with the usual trail of bodies and high-speed chases, of course!
Finally, our newest Lucky Luke brings the Lonesome Cowboy all the way across the Atlantic to … Paris, the City of Light! A far cry from his usual open skies of the West, but who better to protect Lady Liberty, after all?
October with Cinebook: we're only just starting!
Not only is this the seventy first Lucky Luke we publish, but this is also the latest one! A Cowboy in Paris by Jul and Achdé will be coming out on 2 November in French and in English – how's that for quick delivery, hmm?!
