So yeah, /co/ pretty much sucks tonight

Seems like everyone is enjoying more anime/tumblr discussions than talking about some comics and cartoons. Who would know?

But no fear, there's some good old non-cape storytime to see

This time, Melusine - Hocus Pocus. What's not to like?

>No copyright was harmed during this strip

In book 19 they meet the witch from hansel & Gretel (I think - whichever is the one with the candy house), the three little piggies, that donkey who sheds gold (don't know his name), Hop-o'-My-Thumb and his brothers, little red riding hood (she wears a wolf skin coat), Rapunzel, Cinderella, Belle and the Beast, Snow White and the seven dwarves, the rabbit with the clock from Alice in Wonderland, a fairy godmother, they toss the genies lamp in a well, and they top it all off by accidentally killing Queen Grimhilde.
>>
>>69103574

You're oversimplifying it. The French and the Japanese know how to infuse their characters with natural eroticism and femininity. The latter being the key. There is a warm acceptance about it which is utterly absent from US comics. In US comics the "sexy" woman dresses like a whore, is aggressive and yet is antagonistic to men or simply rude. Her sexuality is like that of a cockless man who can't get off.

Actual French women seem kind and nice too, from my limited experience. They aren't afraid of giving you a genuine smile.

Well, lots of those characters are public domain. However the Disney design they gave to them is the one copyrighted, that's why Disney always change their stories a lot, so they can make the copyright a lot more solid

But is fun to see Melusine got away with this one, like that book from Moebius where in the middle of desert there's a exact replica of the famous Dumbo model from the ride of Disney, and they guy use it as a spaceship half of the book, with chases and everything

>Melusine was REALLY being a cunt all that time

The thing is - she is a witch. And not the nice anime witch, but the classical European mess-with-me-and-I-turn-you-into-a-frog kind of witch. So it is in-character for her.
>>
>>69103912
They do use the Disney designs in the book, except for Belle I think.

I've storytimed all the English releases a few times, and it seems to me that few people care about it, but the ones who do like it.

>I translated the first three French volumes and just needed someone to add the text to the word balloons (and if possible, find better scans) but never got a bite.

That's news to me, as far as I know only a few odds and ends were translated, and a lot of them were poorly done. I had a translation for a couple of pages from book 2, but Cinebook ended up releasing that (and their translation almost matched word to word what I got).

Anyway, the biggest problem with translating is that most of the scans are shit. However they are digitalized in good quality, so once I get a stable job, I'll slowly start buying all the issues.

Even the artist of the book doesn't know why Cinebook does that btw.

My guess is that they either wanted to prioritize topical releases so they sell better (release the book titled Halloween on Halloween, or the one called Hocus Pocus around the latest harry potter, etc), or they are skipping some books due to nipple slips. They actually re-draw panels in Largo Winch to cover up nudity, despite that series being released in a higher age category - and it is not uncommon for Melusine books to have nudity.

Funny story, this is actually the second version of this strip, due to a retcon. The original version was one of the first few strips published and back then the idea was that the castle was near a modern city in contemporary times, and so she went to a night club. But pretty soon they settled on a fairytale land setting instead and so that strip never was published in book form in its original version.

Recently the author drew a modern variation of it again, with the idea that the modern world is an alternate dimension. I like that third version but I'd really want to see the original strip again

Here's a blog post featuring a story (in french) by the original writer of the comic detailing Melusine's first meeting with her cousin and including some backstory: http://scenaristegilson.blogspot.ch/2009/12/la-genese-de-melusine.html

So, her parents have vanished, are presumed dead, and her cousin's parents died after being ostracized. Didn't expect that. Since this never was in the comic the canonicity of it may be wobbly.
>>
>>69116359
Holy shit. Apparently the witches here are ancient. This story says that Melusine was 113 before she even first met her cousin.
>>
>>69117034
I think it does a +100 thing so Melusine is 119 and has the appearance and mentality of a teenager.
>>
Did the ever translate the one where she gets laid? I must know. This is very important
>>
>>69117086
Not really, later we learn that her Aunt is well over 500 years old.
>>
>>69117135

Not as far as I know.

>>69117034

yeah, in the very first strip Melusine is introduced as being 119 years old and it's rather obviously meant to be 19
>>
>>69117450
Wait, so is this not the first comic: >>69100415?

>>69117397

I don't, neither do I know where it could be found.

>yeah, in the very first strip Melusine is introduced as being 119 years old and it's rather obviously meant to be 19

17. You have to divide the years by 7. Her niece Malicella is 112 for 16.

No; "Hocus Pocus" is actually volume 7. Cinebook decided not to publish the series in order for whatever reason. It's true the art wasn't as good in the beginning so maybe that's why.

I'll just post the first page of the first volume, Sortileges.
>>
>>69117397
I have the hardcover.
>>
>>69117579
Indeed, in the original french Hocus Pocus is the seventh book. The actual first comic takes place back when she applies to be an au pair for the count.

Seems the english publisher decided to start at a point where the art had already progressed quite a bit and the cast had started focusing on the magic school rather than the castle.
>>
>>69117863
Malicella acts like a twelve years old so the +100 approach seems a lot more plausible.
>>
>>69117885
Oh wow.
So that's from around 20 years ago?
>>
>>69117995
It wouldn't work with the fact that her aunt is 400+ years old (70-something).
>>
>>69118019
first book in february 95, so it's her 20th anniversary like right now. Actual prepublication started in spirou magazine the year before, but I can't remember the exact date. But from the first moment she was waifu material.
>>
>>69118235
one of the things mentioned in that Melusine genesis link from earlier is that she's pretty sure her aunt's lying about her age.
>>
>>69117952
They are just releasing things in random order. It helps that the earlier books don't really have any sort of reading order beyond "character x is introduced". But the later ones get more storylines that go through the entire book, and since the original writer left, the books now have a continuous plot with sometimes major changes (like killing off a character).

Hocus Pocus was book 7 and Halloween was book 8.

Everyone looks smaller and less proportioned in the early books.

I didn't really like how she looked in the middle books, she looked much older than she was.

In the recent books, she looks younger, but much sexier.

It's all just art evolution though - they did not progress with the real years at all, despite even celebrating her birthday at one point.

Yeah but she says she is 500+ in that one, while elsewhere in the comics they said 400+. And also Cancrelune is meant to be 113 but she definitely looks older than that, so the /7 rule fits the best.

Far from a punishment, really. Think of it as an experiment of sorts.

>Known for working at unusually high speeds, in 1999 Bercovici illustrated an entire issue of Spirou on his own (No. 3183), imitating the styles of the other regular artists, including the continuing stories.

It's because Melusine is a humor book and they're choosing ones that mostly translate well. French writers rely on a lot of wordplay/puns that come out as nonsense in English if you translate directly. Real professional translators want to do as little creative writing as possible.

>>69137243
But you know they do the same thing with Yoko Tsuno?
>>
>>69133135
The story of the book is that she is chosen to represent her school in the upcoming magic tournament, but she just lost her magic since, like all witches, she is of age and has yet to "experience true Love, with a capital L".

If just the former you can always just order the book.

And, you know, scan it for people to translate.

The most recent English one.

I don't really hold with that 'rule' myself.

Oh, and humanoids are now on comixology, so I'll get some of those too. Probably Metabarons, Sanctum and Madwoman of the Sacred Heart. I'll do the rest over a period. Some of them aren't HD though, unfortunately.

okay, just cause I got the English ones ripped as well (1440px wide for vol 5, 1200 for the first four). And I want to do the French ones if no one is bothering to.

Just so we can do some coordination or something.

On the other hand, the more people buy it the better ain't that right?

If you have access to the hubs and that, you go ahead and release yourself, otherwise, I'd prefer to do it, it'd help preserve them and spread them.

I'm not sure on the quality, but I know the French have already scanned 1-22

I'd prefer waiting a bit so they can make more money on it - and keep on translating more books. But if someone will rip them anyway, it might as well be me.

One question, is there any identification or watermarking on izneo, that they could use to trace a user by the image file?
>>
>>69144744
Nope, there isn't. At least I hope not!

I've bought it already anyway, so I'm going to release it, sorry.

Thanks, it took me long enough to do them. Cinebook prints aren't really that high quality, the dupuis originals are 10x better. The first two books were much poorer, you can see that things like the colour change a bit every other page. The third book was way better, and the fourth was somewhere inbetween.

>>69144773
haha yes same here, I only need to rename them in order.

Cinebook took a few year hiatus on translations, so the fifth book they released (which is book 10 in the French order) already used the new Melusine logo once it came out.

I've no idea, I don't even really like melusine, so I never downloaded it. I think the newer ones are webrips from izneo, but for some reason they're like 1000 pixels, despite the guy having been told how to rip from izneo properly.
>>
>>69145272
As far as I know, only the then-unscanned volumes (19, 20 and 21) were ripped digitally, and even those are a few years old.

meh, I'll do them sooner or later anyway.

also, if you have no objections, I'll be releasing the English digital rips tonight.
>>
>>69145357
I don't object, but unless you have access to the hubs, I'll release them too, I think they'll spread further that way, I can put them on the empire ftp and it'll be announced in all the hubs, etc.

The image cap is too close, so can't storytime the fifth book, only in a new thread...

>>69148763
Any particular quality difference between those and your scans? Except filesize.
>>
>>69150185
As far as I can tell: the colouring is more consistent and the pages are sharper. This is mostly because the printed versions were poor, so a lot of filtering was done to improve quality. Plus they sometimes had varying contrast from page to page, again a printing fault that the digitals don't have.

But the digital versions have lower resolution (the first four volumes particularly so). And the colours look a bit too pale. I don't know why that is, I've compared them directly to the scans and to the physical books, and the books match the scans but the digital versions don't...

They also have one or two pages just missing (like the cinebook credits page or the back cover).

What exactly was the mistake she made? I only followed the unlettered previews, to the point where Melusine is about to get burned on the stake in front of a tribunal. What happens after that?
