The Adoption was originally published as L’adoption Vol. 1 in 2016 from French publisher Bamboo. A second volume, La Garua, quickly followed a year later, winning both the Saint-Michel Prize for best French-language comic and the BD Franc Belgium Prize in subsequent years. The 144-page, hardcover English-language edition is scheduled for publication in August.
