Hi John,

 

I'm the European editor for Noir Nation, and I would love to get some more stories from France for Issue 2  (Issue 1 will be available Sept 1, 2011).  there will also be a French and a Spanish version of Noir Nation.  Looking for short stories and graphic stories (comics).  Maybe you have some, and could also help spread the word?  We start reading for issue 2 on Oct 1.

 

Thank you,

Alan
