bon dieu, je suis ou maintenant?


The French translation of Strangehaven, published by those wonderful Akileos people, is now being promoted through the website digiBiDi via a cool a new online comics reader.
I am not a huge advocate for reading comics online, but this is certainly a nifty little gadget and the best webcomics 'reader' that I've come across. The full screen, double-page spread mode is very impressive. There's a help page in English here (although the preview remains in French, naturally) but I didn't need to refer to it once, such is its ease of use.
With any luck, you find the neat little widget embedded above. If not, you can check out the French Strangehaven preview in its original environment here.

smoky donation

My good friend (and co-editor on Alan Moore: Portrait of an Extraordinary Gentleman) smoky man tells me that his Italian Watchmen project has so far raised a total of 2,500 euros for AIMA (the Italian Alzheimer charity).
The Italian language Watchmen 20th anniversary tribute book was published in 2006 by Lavieri and featured included my interpretation of Silk Spectre II, which I'll eventually get around to posting on my website.
