Lady Liberty 01 -cover- by auroreblackcat
 Lady Liberty page06 by auroreblackcat Lady Liberty page13 by auroreblackcat Lady Liberty page17 by auroreblackcat

NB : All texts are in french.
NB2 : I don’t know if an english translation will be available one day, sorry. ^___^; 
Lady Liberty is a graphic novel done with a french publishing house : Les éditions Soleil.
All that concern distribution/bookstores, ebook and translation don’t depend of me. It depends of the marketing/translations/copyrigh offices of the publishing house. 
I have the hand on the complete book process only when it’s a self-publishing book.

Thank you. ^__^
