Hi everybody!
I've just bought the French comic book: "Queen, those magical dreams that we shared" (by Simonet) but I haven't read it yet. It was quite hard to get my hands on that book (I looked for it for a whole year before finding it).
Does anyone have it? What do you think of it?

I've read it (don't have it), it's absolutely awesome as far as I'm concerned!

It's funny, I just found some signatures/autographs on the other side of the front cover, I wonder whether they're preprinted. If anyone has that book, could he/she tell me if he/she has these too?

I have the first (in black and white still!) and second printing (in full colour) of the book, and i cherish my friendship with the family Simonet....Jef is a rare artist, and his work is absolutely gobsmacking...the signatures are copies of the real ones he got... The book will be continued with the Q+PR story in the future, and plans are there for a comic/cartoon film with his style....he should get much more exposure with his work....enjoy the book...you'll come to love it very much !

I've just read the whole book today! God it's brilliant, very funny but a lot of information too! Great on, I loved it!
I have the black and white version, I didn't know there was a coloured one. I don't think I'll find it (considering the time it took me to find the b&w one)
Well, you might tell your friend that it's a brilliant work (and I know what I'm talking about, I'm an artist)

Omg where on earth did you get your hands on that?
I've been wanting a comic about them for ages, but I never thought they existed :S

Well, I looked mostly on Ebay. The one I have is called "Queen, those magical dreams that we shared" by French Jeff and Camille Simonet.
You may find another one on ebay (mostly in USA)just look for "Queen + comic book" an ebay and you'll find it easily. (I don't have it so I don't know whether it's a good one)
Simonet's comic book is harder to find, as I said, it took me a year of patience before finding one. If you want more information, here's the wonderful website of the Simonets (I've just found it!): http://perso.orange.fr/queen.comic.world/html/sommaire.english.html
By the way, if you're interested in this one, you may have to try on ebay.fr with French words (I bought mine to a French seller) comic book is BD or Bande Dessiné (in French)
