2 x bone is going to be serialized to my understanding I will double check with translator I know some pics are unrelated I just felt like posting it since that's the months issue news is from. There is a ton of new series not getting covered but for more detailed summaries need translators Mangahelpers has the resources just need some volunteers

With new year there are two event that I look at in French comic news w.r.t manga:
Les bilans ACBD which resume the evolution of comic medium in France and Belgium.
Surprisingly, it managed to still grow up of 4.28% with 5565 new comic book in 2012 (compared to 5327 in 2011) representing 7.38% of the book production.
The new albums (figure of 2011 in parentheses):
4109 (3998) in total with 1731 (1632) French Comic , 1621 (1520) Asian comic among which 1465 mangas, 366 (303) American comics
The print figures of mangas can be found in appendix of the 2012 pdf. Most of them are decreasing. The most interesting point would be that Naruto decreases for the first time from 250 000 to 225 000 while One Piece is one of the rare increasing from 100 000 to 135 000 and even 165 000 for volume 61.
Second event is the Angoulême festival which is probably one of the biggest international comic festival. This year 3 mangas are in the main selection : I Am a Hero, Soil and Therma Romae. Chi competes in the young selection which is funny for a seinen :-)
