IZNOGOUD BOOKS IN ENGLISH

    >>

The original English translations of Iznogoud were published in Britain by Egmont/Methuen and translated by Anthea Bell and Derek Hockridge (famous for their excellent English translations of the Asterix series). There was also one alternate English version translated by Beatrice Soss, and published by Dargaud International in the USA. This translation is a bit different, and most of the other character names in it are different as well.

In 1996 there were at least 3 Iznogoud monthly comic magazine issues printed in the UK by Phoenix Press Limited. The first two issues were similar to the books they used covers from except they were missing one or two stories, while the third issue had nothing in common whatsoever with the book cover it showed. The stories were reprinted exactly the same as in the regular UK edition books, apart from the inexplicable replacement of the word "Caliph" with the word "Sultan" in the first issue, the newer style covers, and a new intro page.

Starting in March 2008, Cinebook UK began publishing complete Iznogoud books in English again for the first time in over 25 years. They continued publishing the first 14 volumes at the rate of 1-2 per year.

In August 2009 Euro Books India published 12 of the later Iznogoud volumes in English, none of which had ever been translated into English before. Thanks to Rafiq Raja for cover scans.
