Hey Régis! Do you think there'll be more volumes of Hector? I'm in touch with Delcourt about possibly doing a German edition, but we (both they and I :D) are a bit hesitant as long as it's not clear whether there will be any further books (even though this can also work as a standalone).

I'm usually not a super big fan of onepager gags because they're mostly not really funny at all, but I actually loved the first Hector album. It's refreshingly funny and the cynical dry humor of Hector himself is just great!

Hi !

To be really honest with you, I don't think (not to say I'm sure) there will be mores volumes of Hector because Delcourt treated us like shit...
I don't know who you're in touch with at Delcourt but it's funny to hear that he or she thinks it's not clear as they told us loud and clear to fuck off...
I wasn't even invited to received my prize in Angoulême.
The guy we work with for the book is the biggest asshole in the galaxy (Yannick Lejeune) and if it's him you're in contact with, don't trust a single word he says...

But thank you very much !
I love Hector too and I was very sad to see how Delcourt treated us.
Marc is a great gag writer !

I think they don't want to tell you the truth cause they want to make money with a German edition but as for us, We will not get any money from it and if you hadn't wrote me this message, I'm sure they woulnd't even had ask me any permission...

Oh, that's too bad to hear, Régis! I'm actually only in touch with the Delcourt/Soleil rights department, who seem to be really nice guys (I've met them quite a few times at festivals and book fairs). So I'm not sure if they know exactly what's going on since they literally handle dozens of series. (They always have to check their lists to see if anything new is planned in the foreseeable future.) But a shame that they treat their authors so poorly. Was this already the case when you did Collège Invisible for Soleil? (But they've only been recently acquired by Delcourt, so it was probably different editors and people in charge back then.)

Unfortunately, the German market is so tiny (my usual initial runs are about 1000-1500 copies) and I'm only a tiny one-man publisher, otherwise I would have suggested hiring you guys to do more volumes just for the German edition. :D But we only have very few new productions here in Germany, about 99 % that's released is licensed editions from other countries. Too bad. Well, maybe in the future if I ever become the biggest and most successful German comic book publisher.

In any case, the book was really cute. I don't know why the French publishers and/or readers are so fixated on these one-page gags, because they are SO BAD most of the time (for instance, I LOVE the Dupa Cubitus artwork, but the gags themselves are always completely incomprehensible and just SO bad, or Achille Talon, or basically any other one-pager series), but Hector was surprisingly witty and extremely funny. Would have definitely loved to see more of this!

Maybe you guys can bring this over to Bamboo or another publisher when the rights revert to you in a few years?

All best,
