Preview Of 2018

The end of the year is good for a review of 2017 but also for a preview of 2018. What are the plans of François Schuiten and Benoît Peeters for the new year?

The radio adaptation of « La Tour » will be presented on France Culture Sunday February 11, 2018 at 9 pm.

François Schuiten is still working on a tribute album of « Blake et Mortimer », so we cannot expect much news related to the Obscure Cities in 2018.

Comme un chef the graphical novel by Benoît Peeters and Aurélia Aurita will be released on January 17, 2018.

Benoît Peeters will continue his series of lectures about comic books in the Arts et Métiers museum until June 2018. Peeters will also start a new series: Penser avec Roland Barthes.

Of course we can expect Livre 2 and 3 of the integral edition of Les Cités Obscures by Casterman. Livre 2 is expected to arrive on March 27, 2018 and Livre 3 in November 2018.

In 2018, Casterman will also publish « Revoir Paris » in one volume, with a postface about the history of Paris. This book will appear in May or June 2018. It will also be published in Chinese and Japanese.

Теория песчинки, the Russian translation of La Théorie du Grain de Sable is announced for 2018.

There will be no English translations by Alaxis Press and IDW in 2018. The Shadow of a Man will have its first English release early 2019.
