A lot of fans seem to be seeking information about this book right now, so here are the most important details: the French graphic novel L’Assassin Royal: Le Bâtard was released 24th of September by Soleil. It is a hardcover book with the ISBN 2302002997. There is a slight error in the first printing that has been reported—pages 12 and 13 have switched places.

Parts of thePlenty.net might be down or working weirdly during this week. I’m upgrading several things and polishing some corners, and the end result will hopefully be a better site. I also need to purchase more space as we seem to have run out! Thank you for your patience. As always, any suggestions and ideas are very welcome.
