Comments
from the article "Publisher's ways are unfathomable (1996)":
Just after publication of Le triangle rouge and Le retour de Cromwell Stone, Le Lombard published the album Styx by Philippe Foerster and, again, Andreas. Foerster wrote the scenario and made pencil drawings. Andreas was responsible for the inking of the pencilwork.
--- part of article left out here ---
The appearance of Styx (1995, Le Lombard) means that there have been published three albums of Andreas by three diverse publishers in a short period of time. This is confusing to the customer, who will likely not buy all three books, but will make a choice, because of financial restrictions. Publishers, too, will not be pleased with this situation: their author appears to be distributed over several publisher's lists, and the excess of Andreas has probably a negative effect on sales figures.
I asked representatives of Arboris, Sherpa, and Le Lombard for a reaction.
--- part of article left out here ---
Yves Sente of Le Lombard considers the copublication of the three Andreas books a seldom coindicence. Even so, he considers it a symptom of the sometimes unfathomable publishing policy in the world of strips.
Yves Sente: The main cause is that strip draftsmen are currently working not for one fixed, but several publishers. We also loose the overview regularly. Added to this, I use are yearplanning in which every month a fixed number of books is to appear, according to a certain distribution. For example one leader - a new album from a well-known series - and two new first albums of a brand new series. This is enough work for me and I can't also take into account the plans of my colleagues.
