Graphic novels or Les BD (bandes dessinees)! In Europe, they go mad for them! They call it "the 8th Art." Every year, a thriving international festival takes place at Angoulome (France) to celebrate graphic novels, a popular art form as well respected as any literary genre. In fact, there are all kinds of BD for both adults and children. They are available everywhere from the village bookshop to the supermarket via cultural media stores like La FNAC or Virgin. My personal love of BD was kindled while living in France. However, it wasn't until the birth of my first son in 1988 that I saw any need to translate and publish them. The struggle of translating them for every bedtime story told me that there had to be an easier way! So, from a desire to have a ready and plentiful supply of these wonderful books available in English, Glo'worm was eventually born in early 1998. Conscious that the English reading public at large was not properly aware of BD, and out of admiration for the work of Goscinny (the author of Asterix), I decided to start with another of his characters: Lucky Luke. Lucky Luke is this super cool cowboy who, with his wisecracking horse Jolly Jumper, protects the population West of the Mississippi from the exaction of all kinds of villains, some real (The Daltons, Jesse James) and some invented. The stories, always well researched, combine fact, fiction and humorous send off with a refreshing lack of political correctness. So far, we have published four titles - Calamity Jane, Jesse James, Dalton City and The Tenderfoot. In total, there are over 60 Lucky Luke titles. An amazing success story worldwide for the last 50 years, there are 250 million Lucky Luke books in print in over 26 languages worldwide. From my own research, the ecstatic response to the BD by my children and their friends proved beyond any doubt that these books deserve to be read by English speakers and that English speaking children deserve the opportunity to read them. Glo'worm sets out to give them this opportunity.About the Author:
The character of Lucky Luke became a myth thanks to Morris (his creator) and Goscinny. These two giants of the 9th art collaborated with passion for more than 20 years until the death of the famous scriptwriter. Goscinny is the author of the well-known Astérix, which he launched with Uderzo. He also co-authored Iznogoud with Tabary. In 1992, Morris received the 'Grand Prix Spécial 20ème Anniversaire' from the international comics show at Angoulême, and in 1998, the French Minister of Culture decorated him with the rank of 'Officier des Arts et des Lettres'.
