Wonderful news from Humanoids – this November they’re bringing us all six volumes of one of the great classics of European comics, Freddy Lombard by the brilliant Yves Chaland, one of the pillars of the “atomic style” comickers, and contributor to the legendary Spirou and Metal Hurlant. An absolute pleasure to know English-language readers will soon be able to add this to their collection of important comic works – the press release from Humanoids notes that the Freddy Lombard series is ideal for those of us who grew up on Tintin (and indeed still love it as adults), and who’ve gone on to works like Garen Ewing’s splendid Rainbow Orchid, and I quite agree with them. The Freddy Lombard hardcover collection is due from Humanoids this November (you can pre-order it here on our webstore), and I’m sure it will be produced to the usual high standards we see in their other titles. And a quick shout out to Humanoids’ UK liasonĀ Tim Pilcher – I know bringing this much-desired Chaland collection has been a labour of love on his part, with many hours of editing put into it’s creation. Meantime, whet your appetite for the upcoming publication by enjoying a wee taster of a few pages here (click on the pics for the full-sized versions):
