Hey everyone, Ouash here, bringing you the next installment of my Wake scanlation project. I'm back from my mini sabbatical and hopefully I should be on track to get this whole thing done by Christmas. I mean, I should hope so, because there's only ONE book left to do until I've caught up with the series! After that I'll be redoing Book 16 with some better scans as well.

If you're not up to date on Wake, I'll explain it briefly (as usual).

Wake, or Sillage in the original French, is a science fiction "space opera" series. The titular space convoy is the main setting, where many species of aliens come together to cross the universe in search of new worlds for fun and profit. The story follows the main character Navis, the first human member of the Wake convoy. If you want to read the previous installments of Wake, you can download them here: https://www.mediafire.com/folder/k7t1d6khh0424/Wake
>>
>>77615486
In case anybody forgot, the last book was a "wacky races" style story that ended in a cliff hanger where Navis had no choice but to "take the Magister hostage"...

Heh, I borrowed a couple of the first issues of Sillage from my town's library but I wasn't too found of it personally. Thought it felt like "I've read this already" kind of story; but maybe it picks up later I wouldn't know.

One series I plan to read is Undertaker. I heard the 2nd issue is coming out in a few days and the 1st one is getting tons of praise.

I'm currently working on my first "scanlation", the first Alone In The Dark comic book from 1994. The thing isn't very well known and I don't think it's ever been translated to English. The art is average at best but the story is good, it does a great job at translating the gameplay mechanics of the video game series it's based on to graphic novel and I find that very interesting.
A 2nd Alone In The Dark comic was made in the early 00's, which I think was written in English and French simulteanously (French writers living in the US) but it's still not a very common book; so I plan to scanlate that as well once I'm done with the first.
>>
>>77615632
Also, I just saw that typo. Like a shlub I decided not to be very careful when proofreading this and just post it instead, sorry.

After this, there is only one more book left! Then the Wake story will finally, after an entire year of work, be complete... Except the 18th book came out recently, so I'll have to get to work on that soon as well!

If anyone is interested in this, I've scanlated the first volume:

http://www.mediafire.com/?li6m9901c1rh313/

And if anyone cares what I'm working on, I've abandoned Murena, after translating 3 books and typesetting 1 and a bit, because those europecomics bastards are releasing official versions.

So, currently I'm slowly working on The Book of Skell, a series complete in 2 books about a faithful supporter of god in a world where everyone worships this big blue blob in the ground who came to the world and gave humans civilisation... and also gives chosen people pieces of himself (think Futurama brain-slugs, but less braindead-making).

After that, no idea.

I don't think there has been one, last I heard, the release was delayed until the end of March 2016.

>>77636327
There's not actually that many, I'd say about 6 or 7 who are still active. We don't really do dibs, everyone is just out doing stuff themselves, a couple of times that's lead to doubled work (e.g. both Sosich and I have a version of SpyGames out there), but for the most part we have fairly different tastes so it works quite well.
>>
>>77636938
Do you have a forum or something?
>>
>>77636947
There's a couple, there's this Indonesian site, which no-one really talks on, it's more just a place to release things on, and for people to ask for stuff.

http://www.kaskus.co.id/thread/000000000000000003870846/scanlations/290

Then there's this other site which covers pretty much every comic released and has a small section for scanlations, even there there's not much talk though, it's a pretty solitary hobby, just because there are so few of us, unlike manga scanlating. It's a closed forum though.

If you're looking for French raws, and you can use the emule network, the best place to go is emulebdz. If you can't there's always a torrent site t411. And if you need DDLs, then I'm afraid it's avaxhome for you.

I usually ignore punctuation, because it's not a must in order to understand things, but there's quite a few places that would get a more natural flow with a comma.

Ideally redoing the 5 that are translated as well, because shitty scans and jj.

Another vote for Les Innomables/The Unmentionables. It's really funny, sexy and un-PC. The sort of thing that won't get an official translation .

Les Innomables is so un-PC that even the German version of T1 is censored, so I doubt you'll be able to find a good scan.

It's not worth scanlating if that's what you're asking. Ankama are giving it the official treatment.

Don't think so, the latest tome came out like 2-3 months ago in France, and it's been 6-12 months between books. next part is probably summer-autumn 2016.

>>77638578
Hmm. Have not seen a scanlation for tome 4.
Do you have any leads for a tome 4 scan(lation)?
The scanlation for tome 3 was insanely fast.

>>77638593
I did the scanlation for tome 3. If there was a scan for tome 4 available I'd finish it in about a day, but there's nothing so far.
>>
>>77638593
That's because the scan came out really fast because there was a digital on comixology and I ripped it. Not the case this time, but iirc a German guy is scanning it so it'll be out 6 months after physical release.
>>
>>77638593
Nope, haven't seen any scans of it. Not that I'm following the series that closely.

The German version is out Dec 1 but they won't release a scan for 6 months after that. They are very strict.

It's also useless without a French scan to translate from.

Do you think Soleil is keeping it from Comixology because of piracy?

Fair enough, I guess.

I really couldn't tell you what they're thinking, but I suppose it's possible. The 7th volume of Wunderwaffen came out in June and that's not yet up, despite the others being pretty much day and date, Okko book 10 isn't either and that was out a week or so ago.
>>
>>77638693
Unless something substantial has happened since Carmageddon, that's not hardly an outrageous claim.

WW2 is part of the plot, so he might be referring to swastika censoring?
Been a while since I read the scanlations so I'm not sure there was any of those though.
>>
>>77638693
Download the French version and the German version. The page where Alix gets raped is missing in the German version.
>>
>>77638789
It's possible the scanner forgot a page, I suppose. But the fact that it's THAT page makes me think it was censored.
>>
>>77637911
Thanks for the corrections! I'll get to work on them after I have some breakfast and then get everything uploaded as soon as I'm done.
>>
Thanks Ouash for the scan.

>>77636327
Dedicated scanlators can be counted with the fingers of your hands.

I think it's more a frenchbro/french student really likes a comic and wants more people to read so he scanlates that particular comic, then disappears.

>>77636987

I wouldn't recommend emule to people who don't want to be traumatized. DC++ is better.

>>77638368

It's quite hard to find good French sources on DC++ though because of how paranoid and secretive they are. Their hubs are closed to rando cunts like us.

I did and it happens out of frame in both versions, Anon. Showing it would mess up the joke about the Lychee falling asleep.

>>77639419
I don't have scans of the german version - I used my physical issues as reference. As for the french scans - I got those, can reup them, but the file pack is password protected and I don't think whoever posted those allegations will believe me when I say that I didn't delete pages from my scanlated version based on them.
>>
>>77639244
emule isn't terrible really, don't normally wait more than like an hour or so, and there's no situation where I can't wait an hour.

>>77638864
Ok, all corrections done! I made a few more changes as well to fix isues that I noticed as I was rereading everything. I did add a 2-3 commas but didn't notice too many spots that were crying out for one. Hopefully they hit a few of the issues proofreader-anon was referring to.

So why are there so few scanlators out there?

There are hundreds of people scanlating japshit. Surely there are more people who speak French or at least German or Spanish, pretty much everyone in the decent countries in Europe has to learn them.
>>
>>77641665
Not that guy.
translate Litteul Kevin. At least the first book please. I read that story as a kid, when they have their wedding anniversary, and I never could find it again.

>>77643596
>There are hundreds of people scanlating japshit.

At a guess it is because English speaking countries already get a shitload of native comics, and European books aren't up to their standards of grim and gritty.

Meanwhile manga translations are spearheaded by hordes of weebs.

European books are in that strange middle position where the art is a bit western, but the stories are more serious and differently paced, so it appeals to neither the fans of American comics nor the fans of manga.

That, and French can be difficult to translate to English.

I'd love to see more scanlations of franco-belgian comics, as well as Italian ones (we got a lot of their Disney stuff and there was a ton of great stuff there).
>>
>>77643596
>There are hundreds of people scanlating japshit.
Well yes, California has millions of inhabitants.

>we got a lot of their Disney stuff
Disney's been releasing most of the multi-parters as digitals for a while now.

I want to get someone a Moebius comic for my Christmas exchange, any recommendations for that? Incal, maybe?
>>
>>77644241
Or would another book be better for someone who reads comics, but really hasn't gone past DC/Marvel stuff yet.
>>
>>77644378
You could get him Silver Surfer: Parable, that's by Moebius, might serve as an entry point to get him more interested in Moebius?
>>
>>77644413
>Silver Surfer: Parable
He's a library comic reader, and they have that book so I'd like to get him something else if I can. What else do you think I could go with?
He was pretty big on the Moore Swamp Thing books, and the Universe X stuff if that helps with his tastes.
>>
>>77644574
>>77644241
Just get him The Metabarons.
>>
>>77644574
Haven't read either of those. Swamp Thing was pretty weird and wonderful, right? Maybe Incal and/or Madwoman of the Sacred Heart, they're pretty trippy and have mystical elements.

Everyone here seems to like The Metabarons most of all probably because it's quite straightforward and won't hurt their capepleb brains

Nah, I kid, just being a dick.
>>
>>77645694
Nah, it basically is the easiest changeover point for people who're familiar with cape comics and little else. It's also available.

He could also get him something like Judge Bao or Arthesia if he feels a bit more adventerous.
>>
>>77636938
>the release was delayed until the end of March 2016.
RRRRRRREEEEEEEEE
>>
>>77645646
>>77645694
>>77646222
So I mentioned wanting to get him a Moebius book, but Metabarons is by Jodorowski and Giminez. I always hear Moebius and Jodorowski in the same sentence, so I guess I'm just curious why they're so similar?
>>
>>77646294
They just worked together a lot, and Incal is just drawn by Moebius, but written by Jodo, and metabarons is in (almost) the same universe
>>
>>77646294
>>77646340
This. Their most famous works overlap, so as long as your friend isn't specifically into Moebius' art, any Jodorovsky's scif books will do.

If you wanna go Moebuis exclusively, you should probably get an issue or two of Blueberry. That one's really HIS solo series.

If you wanna stick with Jodorovsky but don't feel that your friend would enjoy scifi, get him Borgia. That one's rude and funny as heck and Marana's really doing his best to deliver good art in it.
>>
>>77648194
>If you wanna go Moebuis exclusively, you should probably get an issue or two of Blueberry

I would have suggested that to him but... are they even in print in English anymore?
>>
>>77648355
No idea, really. Availability's the biggest issue in any case.

Judge Bao's at least available digitally, so it shouldn't be an issue.

That's an odd font.

Either my eyes are playing tricks on me because I'm tired or the "the"'s in p1 is using different letters than all the other text.

It looks a little like the whole bubble is written with Bold text, except the "the".
>>
>>77650721
Yeah, it is a weird font, I wanted something sort of hand-written looking, with a lower case i, but everything else caps, but I also wanted to be able to write the first person pronoun with a capital i.

It may well be different, sometimes they're the font's caps, sometimes the lower case, to be honest, I quite like it, makes it slightly less machine-y.

This book's kinda weird with bolds, and unfortunately this font has no bold version, so I have to just use the photoshop make bold function.

Thanks OP, I used to read that when I was young. I remember the girl masquerading as an alien in an industrial world where the aliens had to take a drug to remain in an evolved state, it was awesome. I think the last chapter I read was in some kind of prison where some info was revealed about humans. Did they ever revealed more?

Yes, we end up learning a bit more about the humans, but Navis hasn't yet reunited with the earthlings yet.

Hello /fbg/, is it appropriate to ask for recommendations in these threads? I only really got into Euro comics recently (although I guess reading Tintin as a kid kinda counts) and I'd just really like to find some more things to read.

I fucking love dramatic, mysterious (or depressing) early 20th century stories and found Miss Don't Touch Me and Spirou, le journal d'un ingénu to be right up my street. I was wondering if there was anything else similar to these? It doesn't even matter if they're not translated, I'm making an effort to improve my French and finding stuff to read will only give me more practice and incentive to learn.
>>
>>77615486
oh man I almost missed this. I depend on search terms too much, and 'wake' is not a good search term.

>>77655802
Blake and Mortimer, perhaps.

>>77655802
I think there are some more Spirou books outside the main line that are set in the past. I've seen some WW2 stuff.

This might not be exactly what you were looking for but it's a pretty fun read.

>>77658023
I did quite enjoy the couple of Spirou volumes that got storytimed after that one, but they were obviously a lot more lighthearted in tone. I'll check out the series more thoroughly though, Franquin's run seems the most well regarded, yes?

>>77657234

I read the entire series (last volume came out last month). It's very good, the characters are great, there is a shitload of reference to pop and nerd culture. It's a nice hybrid between US comics, eurocomics and manga.

Not sure I'd call any of them heroes.
Mack would be the closest to one, but he's not exactly a saint.

That really does illustrate why it's pointless to translate BDs from any language other than the original French. Just look at the dilution levels in that title alone, and then imagine that over 50 odd pages of plot with humor and wordplay.

Fucking huge, bigger than the US industry in a smaller country.

What's next for you after wake?
>>
>>77673551
Well, one particular fellow has been trying to get me to do Les Innommables (The Unmentionables), meaning I'd redo the first few books that had not-so-great translations and then finish off the rest that haven't been completed yet. It looks pretty cool, I might look into that.

The only thing is, I was hoping I could do something that hadn't been done before for a change. The projects that have been redos or that have been picked up to finish off someone else's work outnumber the ones I've started from scratch. Sambre and Wake are both redos, Violine and the Bellybuttons are others' projects I picked up and finished after they were abandoned. The only original ones I've done are Dallas Barr, Pervert Pappy, and the Game of Love, which are altogether way fewer books than the my "unoriginal" books.

So I guess the answer for now is, I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

I only asked once though.

Re-dos would be really nice, both because the raws JJ used was pretty crappy and because his english is not exactly top notch. You could consider them a warm up, since there's at least 15 tomes of Innommables.

Whatever you decide to do, take a good look at Innommables before you commit to it.
I love down and dirty Hong Kong noir(?) with no goodie twoshoes heroes, but it's not everyones cup of tea (apparently Yann is/was using it as a testing ground to see what he could get away with in White Tigress).

>implying this screenshot proves anything about who i am
>>
>>77675179
Why not work on 2 or 3 series at a time so you have some variety in your life? I would also like to see Innommables btw
>>
>>77676524
I guess that means multiple people have recommended it to me and my samefriend sense was off... In any case, I'll be sure to give it a look. I don't have any better, pressing ideas so it seems like this might be my next project.

Also, just a random question: People who have read JJ's scans of Les Innommables, do you want me to redo them primarily because you're interested in re-reading it with my translation, or don't you much care to re-read it and just want newcomers to not potentially be turned off by the old translation? This doesn't really change anything, I'm just curious.

>redo
First reason for me, honestly.

JJ is not sosich tier bad, but there was some rather jarring things in his releases.
One of the more jarring ones was his inability to distinguish between "dead" and "death".

Quality scans, instead of the Krystal ones he used, is an extra bonus.
>>
Reasons to redo Innomables:

1) Shit scans.
2) Ropey English.
3) Translated from German, not French

Number three is the biggest issue imho. A French pun or joke has very little chance of surviving the translation to German and then to English. I think direct translations would be funnier.
>>
Les Innomables is something /co would enjoy because it's so tumblr-baiting. It's also quite unknown here, so only a tiny minority may have read the early translations.
>>
>>77680223
Don't you just love how anything remotely interesting in comics these days is now Tumblr bait?
>>
>>77675179
Why not try something shorter for a change? Might be nice not to be locked in for so many volumes.
>>
How's progress on Wake 15?
>>
>>77676524
>(apparently Yann is/was using it as a testing ground to see what he could get away with in White Tigress)
White Tigress is pretty milquetoast and mass-compatible compared to The Innomables, Anon. Furthermore, it was the latter that was released in an attempt to see what they could get away with in the Spirou mag when they were originally asked to deliver a new military aviation adventure-series. I think they went up to cannibalism in then Zero books, but Yann drew those so the art isn't exactly great to begin with and the series only gets beyond baiting and trolling Spirou from the Hongkong-arc onwards.
>>
>>77682421
Tumbl is about as easy to agitate as /co/, Anon. And Innomables is offensively un-edgy, even when it features characters like cannibal rapist pirate queens who collect human skins or a whole army of CIA-funded Nazis more or less falling for a transsexual's penis.
>>
>>77616124
Bullshit. They shouldn't have won to be honest.
>>
>>77682578
He could do something short and something long. There's no law that says you have to complete a series once you start it. Nigger can take his time. Branch out.

>>

The real trick is to not do series you don't like.
