WELCOME!

Hello everybody!

 

Now that the Angoulême International Comics Festival has ended, what’s up at Editions Caurette? Well, first of all, after one year of hard work, our new artist’s edition is finally here: “Métro Chatelet Direction Cassiopée” , centerpiece of the adventures of Valérian and Laureline (by authors Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mézières). Just as we did for “Les Oiseaux du Maître “, that we published at the end of 2016, we scanned the plates again in color and used the four-color process to print practically all of the original plates of “Métro Châtelet” in a large size: 35x47cm. Numbered and signed by the authors, this publication also offers 25 bonus pages, including a long interview exclusively centered on the realization of this special comic book. There is much more to say about it, but I’ll let you discover all the details for yourself on this website …

Second big news: a wonderful sketchbook by Armel Gaulme. His name might not ring a bell but take the time to admire his work! We were all genuinely charmed by his art. On top of that, this sketchbook is available at a rather affordable price: 15€ for 112 pages and a beautiful hard cover.

And, the icing on the cake: we finally received the first pages of the ”Kong Crew” comic, by Eric Herenguel (Krän, Lune d’Argent sur Providence, Trewlanay, Ulysse 1781 …). This story is an uchronia inspired by exceptional authors such as Dave Stevens, Milton Caniff, Frank Frazetta, Will Eisner or Mark Schultz. The story is set in New-York, in 1947, 14 years after the victory of Kong on the US Army and the evacuation of Manhattan. It includes dinosaurs, planes and a dachshund on a diet. In short, you just can’t miss it!

The complete comic (72 pages, classical French-Belgian format) will probably be released in the beginning of 2019; nonetheless, we decided to pre-publish a comic (soft cover, 17,5×26 cm) in English, that is comprised of the first 26 pages of the story, as well as bonuses. 1200 copies are printed, and they will be sold for 5€ each. Quite the collector to get!

Finally, one word about our latest imports: we are now handling the distribution of Luis Esteves’ Rust n’ Bolts and of Peter Han’s Dynamic Bible. And on top of that, we are also distributing the sketchbooks by Karl Kopinski, who worked for clients such as Games Workshop, Wizards of the Coast, Ubisoft or Peter Jackson, and whose oil paintings and tablet drawings are exquisite (to visit his website, click here: www.karlkopinski.com).

All these books are obviously available on our platform: www.liberdistri.com !

As always, feel free to call us if you have any questions, you will find real people on the line (I know, it sounds crazy, but it’s actually true!)

See you soon!
