    It was published last year in other countries that have better-developed markets for graphic novels & comics, so this publisher has aquired rights to produce the English edition, hoping it'll sell because of next weekend's race.

    I suppose reviewers may have picked up copies in France or wherever else it was previously available. Or they're shills. :twisted:
