Better late than never...
The new series that follows L'Ordre des Dragons is on sale in France (and in a couple of weeks in Québec). That's right, L'Apogée des Dragons (that's the title) is a brand new graphic novel crafted with writer extraordinaire Éric Corbeyran. This new story will be told in two volumes and starts right after the end of WWII, a few years after the end of the first series. But have no fear, both series can be read independantly.
Also remember that the comics and illustration exhibit at La Maison des Arts de St-Faustin is open until the end of October. Go have a look.

As of today, two new L'Ordre des Dragons books are in bookstores simultaneously!
The first one is L'Ordre des Dragons Book 0. Yes, Jean-Luc really wanted to tell the story of the Order in the victorian era and since I was busy with the follow up to the first series with Eric Corbeyran, Jean-Luc decided to go ahead with the talended italian artist Elia Bonetti.
The other one is a great opportunity for hesitant readers. ;-)
The "Preuve par 3" collection from Soleil puts three books of their publications in one volume. In this case it's the complete first series (it was told in three books, remember?). No waiting for the ending, it's all in there!
