Over at Robot 6, the cover for volume 3 of ‘Last Man’ by Bastien Vivès, Balak and Michael Sanlaville has been unveiled. Called ‘The Chase’, this will be the third part of the series – which hasn’t even officially started at First Second yet! The series, originally published in France, is planned to go on for twelve books in total.
In France the series has already seen the first three books released, to general acclaim and joyously tossed baguettes, trumpeters atop the Arc du Triomphe, etc. English speaking readers have only a slight delay for the translation, as book one of the series is set for publication in March next year. It’ll be followed by the next two books – including The Chase, which is currently set for October. As new books are published in France, so they’ll come to First Second, and the current belief is that the second trilogy will begin to see English publication in 2016.
