    Because I am crazy, I decided to translate Yves Swolf’s excellent comic book series Le Prince de la Nuit in English. It relates the story of Vincent, a French journalist in the ’30s, who find himself forced to confront a vampire that has plagued his ancestors all the way to the Middle Ages. It is good, well-written and well-drawn, and sadly not available in English, hence the effort.

    Feedback is always appreciated as it allows me to correct some of my mistakes.

    Currently the first two books are translated:

    01 - The Hunter

    02 - The Inquisitor's Letter

    Was Millénaire ever translated? Similar theme but set in an even earlier medieval period (year 1000).

    Ah well, I guess I should do the rest of book 1 and post it. It has rape and sex and tits. That's sure to gather crowds. Or maybe move it to the playground. :D

    I love comics art that wasn't corrupted by the vile touch of a computer. Good stuff, I didn't know this one.

    It was very famous when it came out, and is probably Swolfs' greatest success to date. It lasted from 1994 to 2001 and then it kinda disappeared from the foreground, but it's well-known from most comic book enthusiasts. It starts a bit slow but mostly because it sets the scene for the action. Then starting with the second book we got a flashback to Aymar, one of Vincent's ancestors who was an inquisitor during the Renaissance, and probably the best of them with Maximilien from the 19th century, while back in 1938 Vincent learns that Kergan is coming to Paris. But I'm getting ahead of myself and need to finish the second half of this one first.

    Rest of book 1 is coming. I had a busy week and started to give private English lessons to a 14 year-old consoletard, and that takes a while to prepare.

    Just a small update to say that I've been very busy lately but this is still going on. I have to finish editing the text and then I can probably start to edit the images soon.

    IIRC the first 10-15 Thorgal comics have been translated into English.

    There are still new Thorgal issues coming out, but I don't know whether they're any good. New writer/artist etc.
