Re: Bande Dessinée/Comic-book eds of Hugo

Trompe-la-Mort, I don't know if you ever finished translating this comic, but a Duck Comics fan (who knows nothing about Les Mis) has helpfully done a translation that can be downloaded here. Since I'm both a Mizzie AND a Duckfan, I got a real kick out of it.

Re: 2.5 À chasse noire, meute muette 19/12/10-28/12/10

the corpse (of what we will later learn is a deceased sister) Is that still figure that Valjean sees actually the dead nun? I had always assumed that it was just one of the nuns performing the reparation, as described in the previous book. The words of the prioress later on seem to imply that the n...

Re: 3.8 Le mauvais pauvre/The Bad Pauper 21/3/11 - 11/4/11

Okay, this has always confused me. Valjean goes to all the trouble of giving Thénardier a false address to gain time, getting out this specially-made sou, cutting his bonds when no one is looking, grabbing the poker... and then he just wounds himself with it, tosses it away and surrenders immediatel...

Re: 1.1 Un Juste/An Upright Man, 1/9/10-14/09/10

I've always thought it took the place of a disclaimer along the lines of "This is a work of fiction. Any resemblance to real places or people, living or dead, is purely coincidental." Huh. I had always assumed that it was the opposite: a way of maintaining the illusion that this could be ...

Re: Translations and Editions

Thanks, Marianne! Skimming through the Wraxall, it's not my favorite, but it's still nice to finally have an ebook version other than the Hapgood. Out of morbid curiosity: does anyone know what is the shortest abridgment of the Brick that has ever been made? My own abridged copy, which was my first ...

Éponine's name

Not sure where is the proper place to ask this.

This board's software automatically puts an accent on Éponine's name. But in every edition of the Brick I've seen her name has no accent. Could someone explain what's up with that?

Thanks!

Re: Favourite novel passages?

Speaking of Marius stalking Cosette... How about this little comment? On the way thither, he encountered Courfeyrac, and pretended not to see him. Courfeyrac, on his return home, said to his friends: "I have just met Marius' new hat and new coat, with Marius inside them. He was going to pass a...

Re: Keeperships!

If the game is still open...

I claim:

Cosette's bucket
Mother Crucifixion's empty coffin
Valjean's dropped handkerchief with U.F. on it

Wait... has anybody claimed the loaf of bread yet? 'Cause if not... it's totally mine. ; )

Re: Do you serve decaff here?

The Disney Hunchback may be a dreadful adaptation, but that does not stop me from loving the songs. :P

If anyone wants to know what a Disney!LM would be like, though, try this:

Re: Other fandoms?

My other main fandoms are Tolkien, Star Trek TOS, Doctor Who, Back to the Future and Sherlock Holmes. I don't know if there are any other Holmes fans around here, but I thought I would share my crack theory. I was rereading some parts of the Brick after just having spent a long time in Holmes fandom...
