Cinebook, publishers of a wide range of bande dessines in English, have had a bit of a Grzegorz Rosinski special in terms of their recent releases, with two different volumes drawn by the legendary Polish artist coming out at the same time.
Thorgal was first, with The Cage, finally returning home after many adventures – but it’s not that easy when your wife isn’t the meek, stay at home kind… Aaricia is no wallflower, and the happy ending will have to be earned!
In volume two of Lament of the Lost Moors, the first cycle of the adventures of Siobhán comes to a close. And amidst the war and conflict, revelations will be offered that may shake the foundations of her world…
Finally, a Cinebook staple, Lucky Luke is back with another adventure, one that sees the Daltons take an unexpected step towards marital bliss and respectability. Well… That’s the idea anyway – the end result may not be quite so rosy!
Cinebook has also announced it is launching a number of new series and new titles, making them available in digital format first in partnership with with Izeno. Presumably, the idea is to gauge interest and then look at print editions.
Their digital releases kick off with a bang, too, with a XIII Mystery – the first in a series of one-shot tales each centred on one of the more striking secondary characters of cult series.
Six volumes of these have been published in French. This month it’s deadly, sinister assassin-for-hire The Mongoose. Expect surprises!
Cinebook’s other new series is Wisher. Set in modern day London, it introduces Nigel, a carefree, successful young man with a talent for bringing people what they wish for.
Unfortunately, Nigel will soon find himself involved in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with some government agents that use… fairies as standard equipment!
Here’s a quick rundown to three recent Cinebook print releases:
