I am wondering how I can purchase a copy, from here in the USA. A website link? Even if not available yet in English, I have plenty of friends who read and speak French. Besides, pictures are worth a thousand words, aren't they(?).

I remember fondly my copy of Classics Illustrated, Caesar's Gallic Wars and how my very anti-comic book dad was NOT happy I had bought a copy (1966-I think). It got read/looked at so much that it fell apart years ago. Your artwork is so much better than that one was.

C'est vraiment super! Un bd sur la GdG avec une reconstitution d'époque scrupuleuse … et tes dessins sont vraiment géniaux !

Looks very, very good!
I want to buy this the next time I'm in Paris… How many volumes do you have in mind? VIII ;-) ?

I'd buy the French version.... my french really needs to be tip top for the Pontoise market in November as it was a pretty poor weekend revenue wise this one just gone!!

I really enjoy with the pictures, great job!

Such a pity that my French is so bad

sorry for the long time waiting for a news, but at last we are ready to get the english version.It will be available at the end of the year, and we'll be on Angoulême in january 2013 for the first gig. The french version will be on sale at Pontoise,16-18 November,by our friends from the Keltia magazine (if some of you move on this show)

We've done an english trailer :
Fantastic! And when will the english version be available?
Fantastic work, I'd love to get my hands on an English language copy if it's released.
