Comments: Created by Andreas ( Andreas Martens).
The first two Rork stories were originally serialized in "Tintin" in 1978., before being collected in the graphic novel format. The other volumes were directly released as graphic novels.
The first five Rork stories were translated by Randy & Jean-Marc Lofficier. They were first serialized in b&w in Dark Horse's "Cheval Noir" comic, then published as graphic novels by NBM.

Though published in France, Rork's creator and writer Andreas is apparently German, so I've listed Rork in both the French and German sections.
