dear black frog:
i love your comic work. it is amazing. you can explain so much so elegantly....its something to aspire to. the only problem i have is with some of your text. its like its all garbled and i cant make any sense of it. its, like, french or something? perhaps if you tried writing in english i'd know what the hell you are saying.
great to see an update brother. i miss you dearly, and cant wait to see you soon!!!!!!!
hope all is well.
ok that's it. That's the complete third book of the series. I was a bit lazy on that one -- couldn't get to start on it -- and I had to do the 300 pages in 20 days caus' of the deadline.
There will be 8 other sequels after that. next one should be done by october.
I'll leave it a couple of days for you to read if you read french and I'll take it off line to publish it in June.

Merci beaucoup de partager cette merveilleuse aventure avec nous. Je vais essayer d'aller à la Japan Expo comme l'année passée pour me faire signer mes copies (si tu t'y rend bien entendu).
Je trouve que c'est une histoire qui est très intéressante. A mon avis c'est parce qu'elle t'es très personnelle et que tu as toute les libertés pour l'écrire. Je suis agréablement surpris de revoir le facteur, sa rencontre avec la grenouille noire est tout simplement merveilleuse. J'éspère que dans la suite on en apprendra d'avantage sur les 10 élus.
Free and clear as the spirit of a bird.
At least Icarus tried!

My "Smilechild" Music. Plus a medley of Commercial Music Cues and a Folksy Jingle!:
there is nothing to say! excelent man!
These are amazing. Although I'm really not good at french, judging from the pages and from what my pal Manuel told me, the story is damn good (still hoping for an english translated version ).
Anyways, keep pushing it man, you are so vastly evolving time and time again.
The first full size -- more or less -- 10 pages of STONE MONKEY Chapter I

I could do nothing more than stare at the back of your awesome coat while you were drawing at the wacom stand in angouleme, so i'm very much looking forward to seeing in berlin at MADE, and possibly eat your brains.
Wow! Amazing work as always Igor. I hope you take it as a compliment that I want to scoop your brains out with a spoon and gobble the brilliance like a fine bread pudding! ^_^ Thanks for posting!
