I am pleased to announce that we have amended our territorial contract with the respective licensors and are now able to sell all of our Jacques Tardi books throughout the world, including in the United Kingdom. Mail order, distribution through wholesalers and retailers, etc.
And in the "my life is better than yours" gloating category, I believe I am the only person in the world who has read both Jason's next book (Athos in America, going to the printer in a week or two) and Tardi's next book (the new Manchette adaptation Ô Dingos! Ô Châteaux!, which we are planning to release in 2013) — both of which are just as unfathomably awesome as you might expect. Bonus: The ruthless killer (who dispatches an unfortunate victim with a sawblade through the heart in the first page of the book, as seen below) is named Thompson!
