Jour J - French AH Comics collection

new Volume 38 for August 2019

The Last Musketeer. 1 of 2





* Fronde des princes was a series of civil wars in France between 1648 and 1653, occurring in the midst of the Franco-Spanish War.
Oh man, I want this in English. The cover is a take off on the famous (in its day) Henri Motte painting of Richelieu at the Siege of La Rochelle, so the twist here is curious and made me pay attention even before I realized we were going full bore into the Dumas romances.

I'm all in on this, thanks to silly plot and good cover. But staying away from the hallucination voodoo stuff and DRACULA~ plots of previous iterations.

 
Is it me, or have they stopped doing translations into English on these works over the last two years? Is it some kind of economic thing, or changes in taste? 2017 to 2018 there was a mini-boom of Jour J translations and backfilling of the releases. Now, crickets. Considering English language AH comics that are not based on alternate takes of a given superhero are not done often, I for one will miss it.

What its about.
French Algerian Ismael Tayeb is a lieutenant in a criminal gang. His boss gives him an order he can not refuse: find a nuclear battery ...
For this he will have to restart and use the last Atlas, one of those huge French robots who managed titanic constructions works to the middle in the 1970s,
but after a serious nuclear incident during the Algerian war, all were dismantled ...
with the exception of Nr°13 "George Sand" who lies on scrapyard in India.
At the same time, Françoise Halfort, a former war reporter, finds herself confronted in the Algeria.
with an unprecedented ecological and seismic phenomenon that will upset the balance of the world ...


This mixture of a good Luc Besson thriller, Gigant Robot, politic and alternate History
is a surprise hit in Belgium and France
i read it and highly recommend it

Possibly. I have a harder time finding Jour J in the place I usually saw them. That said, it might just be in the one store I usually go to to have a look...

I do have the impression that they're taking more and more time to release a story though.

Ohh, thanks, didn't know when the second album would be released.
 
Given the country-wide – or even continent-wide – lockdown due to the coronavirus epidemic, I have the feeling that most publishers are massively rescheduling their releases.
 
Good news
"le dernier Atlas" volume 2 and Jour J volume 40 are ship out to Online shops and Bookstores

Strangely no info about Preview on Next "Jour J 41" neither "Wunderwaffen: Zepplinwar" at there publisher
i know for Wunderwaffen is could be publish end of Year, but the chance are marginal...
 
According to Amazon, this is "J. Jour" #41:

On the moon the revolt is launched and the factories are on strike. Ardan, despite himself, takes the lead of the insurgents. The mysterious Babette seems to be pursuing her own interests. As for the Vors, the fearsome mafia that reigns with an iron fist over the helium mines, it seems to hesitate to choose sides. Will the rebels of the Moon triumph or perish?

If anything the release isn't until September 20, 2020. As such, I will definitely take a look at "Le Dernier Atlas"....
