Drew (Drew1365) Greetings!

I'm not sure where to mention this, so I thought I'd give this a try.

It appears that two different books have been combined under the same entry (with further wonkiness ensuing).

"Atlantis Mystery" and "The Affair of the Necklace" are two different Blake and Mortimer books by E. P. Jacobs, but searching for either of them puts you under the same entry. "Atlantis Mystery" is an "edition" of "The Affair of the Necklace" or vice versa.


Blake et Mortimer, tome 7: L'énigme de l'Atlantide

I would like to list and review both, but searching for either book puts me in the same place.

Krystal109 | 1081 comments This should be fixed.

I think someone combined it because it is listed as book 7.


Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments If there's a set of these books with different numbering in translation, a new series should be created to show the new numbering (and each edition should have its own series numbering in its title, to match how it was published).


Drew (Drew1365) The current English language publisher uses a different numbering scheme, and I suspect that's part of the problem. "Atlantis Mystery" is the 7th in the series, but Cinebook, Ltd (the English publisher) lists it as 12th, and "Affair of the Necklace" as #7.


Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Cool -- thanks, Drew! I've created a series for the Cinebook numbering here:

Drew (Drew1365) Everything's looking good so far. The other weirdness is that the English Edition shows the cover to a completely different book. A "Lucky Luke" story called "Rails on the Prairie."


Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments & the German editions, for good measure:

Which book has the wrong cover? I thought I saw that earlier going through them, but I can't spot it now.


Drew (Drew1365) Oh, sorry . . . "Atlantis Mystery" has a wrong book cover for the English Edition.

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Ah, there it is! Okay, I've replaced that with the Cinebook cover (& I'll see if I can track down where that other cover was meant to go). Thanks!


Krystal109 | 1081 comments I was gonna go through and fix all that, but had to go out for lunch. Thanks for the help Cait.
