You're very welcome, Keith. When you get "Cité de la Foudre" be sure to check out the translation here: Cité de la Foudre

Will do after "Grimoire" is finished. As for the "made man" bit, don't count on it!

You can count on it! Any idea when the entire translation for Grimoire Maudit will be finished? Will there be a .pdf to download the entire comic? Why do I have so many questions?

(Thanks Stoo!)

Thanks Stoo, glad to be back. I do read the threads more often than I post in them but I will try to contribute more.
Oh, so glad Indy gets to go up against some Nazis this time, just for a change of pace He's probably seen more Nazis than ever actually existed in real life. I did find it amusing that they just had to change "van" to "von", and when he started speaking German at first I thought the writers were just too lazy to know the difference between that and Dutch.

So, I was able to track down the other 2 books in hardcover, but having a hard time finding "Grimoire Maudit". Anybody have any leads? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Not many pages remain so it'll probably be finished within a month. Will there be a .pdf of the entire thing? That depends if someone out there volunteers to compile it. (Hopefully, it won't be in the .cbr format which JuniorJones-without a space likes to use!) If no one comes forward, I'll do the .pdf file, myself.

Note: After the transalation is finished, the credit page will be re-worked to include Junior Jones (with a space) since he has been instrumental in providing all the pages after DIrishB left off.

Keith, the only possible lead I could recommend would be: DIrishB (who contributed scans to this "Grimoire" thread & the "Foudre" one) put most of his Indy collection up for sale in August 2009, including his French Bagheera comics. You could try and contact him via PM and inquire about their fate (as a last resort, I have his e-mail).

I actually liked the van-to-von change!

I'll do both.

Cbr. Is the standard for veiwing digital comics and is basically a winzip cbz. or winrar file.

I tend to perfer cbr, simply for the fact you can get direct access to each individual page in your prefered image file format. With PDF, you can't without a specific programme.

I also find .cbr more user friendly especially with the magnifier tool, though a .pdf is a tidier single file. Compiling Grimoire page by page lets it play like a .cbr anyway.

Thanks, Stoo. I sent him a PM a few weeks ago and never heard back...I may yet have to resort to the last resort.

DoomTown Keith: His e-mail address is on my other computer so when I get back to Switz, I'll shoot him a message asking him if he still has "Grimoire" because they're an interested buyer. Sound good?

No worries Stoo, thanks for the effort.

I think I may just have to wait for this translation to be finished to have the story...

Hmmm, I wonder whether that trickster Indy really gave von Meert the real formula...

I too expect the Hudson Hawk ending.

Will he finally get his hat/cappuccino?

In true Bond style, I think the villain will lose his lair.

Indy should get the girl, and bring her the cappuccino for breakfast.

Moedred, when I saw "KFC" in your link, I frowned and thought, "In this interent age, is nothing sacred anymore?" but was relieved to find that the recipe for Kentucky Fried Chicken is still a mystery. (Unlike the secret 7X ingredient of Coca-Cola!) The A&E Biography on Col. Sanders mentions that he wrote the recipe on the back of the kitchen door for his daughter, in case he died. Now it's in a vault with only 2 people who know the combination. Gotta love it!

This is 3rd time in the story that the formula has been repeated. I practically know it by heart now!

I could tell you that, before Junior sent me the rest of the scans he answered that question several months ago, but it would be much more fun to keep you in suspense.
