Les Enfants d'ailleurs.

Post by bannister » Sat Dec 16, 2006 3:37 pm

Hello folks. I haven't post much here lately, I'm sorry.
I'm pretty busy with all that stuff I've said yes to.

Anyway, finally I can post pics of my book ! The release is due for january the 3rd in France. I think you'll find it in import store almost everywhere and on the web (like amazon) for the out-of-Francers. No english version planned for now.

Here are the pics. :)

As you can see, there will be a free print given for every purchase, but only in some stores. It's a bookstore chain who made them and they only made 200 copies. So I'm afraid they won't be available overseas. :(

Here are also some pages :

What work do you have in english?
To view the last of me, a living frame
For one more picture! in a sheet of flame
I saw them and I knew them all. And yet
Dauntless the slug-horn to my lips I set,
And blew. "Childe Roland to the Dark Tower came."

This is really, really cool. Tell your publisher they need to make an English version (just for me!)

Well done Bann! Really nicely done. I'll be picking this up. I can't speak French, but i have numerous French comics as in my opinion some of the best work I've seen recently is coming out of Europe. A well implemented comic doesn't necessarily need the accompanying text to tell it's story, the image narrative stands on it's own. I'll be taking the time to learn French in new year, broadening my horizons and all that.

Well done mate, you can count on my support, i'll be picking this one up and i wish you all the success in your endeavours.

Great stuff, Bannister! Now I want to brush up on my French; I feel stupid for forgetting all my college French :(. I love the way that one guy runs. :D

Nick, go to bed. ;)

Even with 3 years of French under my belt, I still have trouble translating all that. Any chance it will be released in English? I'd definitely buy it.

I'll have to have my old french dictionary handy. It'll be worth the effort, though.

Je ne veux pas étudier français; c'est trop difficile. :wink:
j/k... Si je veux parler amoureusement avec les filles jolies françaises, je dois étudier la langue. Ainsi soit-il!
