Ankama content in English ever happening?

Hi all.. 

Obtaining English Version of Wakfu, Dofus, such as books, art, novels, comics, dvd or bluray.... is literally non exsistent and I know that its primarily French, & I know the sales may not have done well as expected, but This entire Franchise is epic, and although being 7 years late to it... i really wish English content was able for purchase from Ankama -- its not fair,... 

I'm willing to pay, im being more of a fan as i watch wakfu on Netflix & play the games, but I want to be able to purchase it, and the fact that all of the english only speaking people are left out when it comes to purchasin is totally unfair.... maybe if Ankama did more advertising for the ENGLISH COMMUNITY and gained more attention, then alot of people would buy it...

im really sad as a fan that i cannot buy your products in english...

Marry a French and make them read it to you in English.

Well, the Netflix WAKFU Season One did come out on DVD as a 4-disc set. Picked it up some time ago on Amazon.

Its a precarious situation for Ankama with respect to translating books/manga and other printed media.  If they did it for English they would have to do it for other languages as well.   

The Wakfu animated series is already translated (and can be purchased) in different languages with different playing regions but I suspect that was because it had more of a backing financially (**coughNetflixcough**) than their printed media does.

The best you could probably do is to use an app on your phone to translate the text to your language (Microsoft Translator is pretty good and is free)

So because they choose to translate the book into one of the most widely used langauages in the world, they would have to translate it into ther langauages as well?
What?

Majority of their printed media is in French. Only a handful are bilingual in FR/EN and a few have been re-released in SP

If they translated everything into EN to appease the English speaking community it would cause an outcry with other communities from other countries because something isnt in their language.  That is the precarious part.
