Soaring Penguin Press, stalwart of unusual and high-quality titles in the small press sphere, has had a big week for announcements.

The graphic novel will be an English collection of Loisel’s six-volume bande dessinée. The original series sold over a million copies worldwide so the English edition is set to make a big splash with its release this coming Autumn.
Soaring Penguin’s second big announcement is the return of Ellen Lindner’s The Black Feather Falls for its second volume.
