The title of the new Asterix album, the second since Albert Uderzo retired, was announced at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair Tuesday!

22 October 2015 is the announced release date, but I can find no information from Orion Books, the British/American licensee. I can’t even find the backlist? [Speaking as a fan, Orion mucked up the release of the previous volume, Asterix and the Picts, in 2013. Imagine being a Harry Potter fan, and then having to wait two months for books to be shipped to the United States!]
There is an official site for the book. You can watch video interviews!
I’ve been writing for The Beat since July of 2010.
I’ve been reading comics since 1974, collecting since 1984, and spreading the graphic novel gospel since 1994.
I’m a bookseller, a librarian, an amateur scholar, a cool uncle, and a comics evangelist.
Ask me anything!
