    Default Forgive me, I'm American...

    I already posed this question, but I was in the wrong forum, I think.

    A few years ago when I was in Singapore, I fell in love with Wind and Cloud. I bought the 15-volume set and art book and brought them back to the States. I've asked everyone I know to help me with the story. No luck. Finally, I found this site had an English translation story line. It was so-o-o-o-o helpful.

    However, it stopped in volume two because an English translation was coming from the publisher of Tin Ha. I can't find this translation.

    Help, please.

    gee, i didnt know Wind & Cloud ever had translations.....

    i dont really understand your question. Are you looking for the subtitles for the series or what? All I know Wind & Cloud is supposed to be adapted from comics, have never known of it being a wuxia novel.

    Perhaps translations is the wrong word. It was on the "Tin Ha" link, and this wonderful person gave the plotline of the comics and encouraged to follow along with the illustrations. He called them the Fung Wan volumes. He completed the first book and did four parts of the second volumn, then said that "Jonesky" the publisher was bring out the English translation so he wouldn't be doing any more plot lines. I've never found the English work he's referring to.

    It is very hard to find translations for the later issues of the comic. I remember there used to be a site out there where u can read the lastest issue of stormriders but i think the site might be down or something might of happen to it. been over 2-3 years since last time i visit. I think it was comicone or something like that not too sure. Good luck on your search.
    Am i Crazy!?!?!?!

    For the volumes already translated into English and published by ComicsOne, before they went bankrupt, follow the link provided by Han Solo. ComicsOne bet a little too heavily that Wuxia Manga would catch on. I have not seen any fan translations of the remaining volumes.

    Thanks Han SOlo...

    I went to Amazon and ordered one of the books. I'll see what they're like. Goodness, I'm hoping I don't have to learn Chinese just to see how the story turns out! Mr. Ma has created such beautiful art, I really think he deserves more exposure in the US. In my opinion, something is lost once you try to apply an art form to a video medium.

    Thanks again,
    straykitty

    FYI:

    ComicsOne also produced an English version of ROCH (Shen Diao Xia Lui) under the name of Legendary Couple. IIRC they also did Heaven Sword and Dragon Saber.

    I also seem to recall that some of the comics were available for viewing online as well... maybe from the ComicsOne web site. Maybe I'm confusing it with CrossGen.

    Unfortunately, comicsone going bankrupt or something in 2005, abandoned their website, stopped paying its bills and disappeared without a trace...

    If you just want to look at pretty pictures of way over the top martial arts here's a link to scans of the untranslated Storm Riders, it's split up in 3 pages, each page features all the chapters of a single story arc:

    http://mhzw.diy.myrice.com/fy1/fy1.htm

    http://mhzw.diy.myrice.com/fy2/fy2.htm

    http://mhzw.diy.myrice.com/fy3.htm

    Of course that will probably only make you want a translation even more, sorry I can't be of more help.

    i think the best thing about graphic novels or comics are that you can usually catch the gist of the storyline even if you dont read the words. Like when I used to buy japanese mangas as they came out before the translations.
