No, not yet. Just keep an eye on this thread.

As I'm on holiday in San Francisco I thought I'd visit Last Gasp (thanks to this site for the address). I found that they're not open to the public but a friendly Last Gasp employee spoke to me from an upstairs window. He said they still don't have a firm release date for Cigars yet, it's in the hands of Casterman.

Thanks for that Rocky! You have gone beyond the call of duty in actually calling on Last Gasp and demanding a release date!

What did you do? Stand outside there banging on the door and shouting? :)

Good work with the information!

No, I just pressed the doorbell!
The guy said they're really just acting as distributers for Casterman.

The latest word from the Tintin Shop (London) is that they don't have an exact date, but are expecting the book in "any time soon". Watch this space!

The wait goes on! Amazon.co.uk are now listing the publication date as "November 2005".
I emailed Last Gasp last week, but have had no reply as yet.

Mmmm ! "The Tintin in the Orient 1" lettering looks a bit clumsy to me though. Is that how it is on the original French version?

I have an original pre-war Tintin au Congo and on the backcover Tintin en Orient is definitely mentioned, but as a subtitle. My guess is to continue the Tintin in... tradition.
You don't have to guess the subtitle for the next album: The blue lotus. That is, of course, Tintin en Extreme-Orient.
The picture shows a '1', so maybe that's not on for the British edition.

It's quite likely that the picture shown at Amazon is just a pre-publishing "mock-up". This also occured for the cover to the recent America facsimile which showed a more "soviets" style lettering although the final version was quite different. Hopefully we'll find out very soon!

More discouraging news I'm afraid - amazon.co.uk is now giving the publication date as March 2006.
