Angoulême Dreaming Friday

Wishing I were in Angoulême, the 40th such occasion in France, and the largest comics festival of its kind in the world…

Comic book authors knighted by the French Republic were Pénélope Bagieux, Emmanuel Guibert and Jean-Claude Denis, with Culture Minister Aurélie Filipetti on hand to hand out the medals. They were rather happy…

Thorgal’s Rosinski got himself a higher grade of medal, however.

The Angoulême Grand Prix votes being cast by comic creators..

Such as Benoit Peeters..

While Uderzo was feted by the show, 85 years old…

We also got a projected release for the next Asterix volume, October 24th, being drawn by the US based Didier Conrad, now too busy to even come to Angoulême!

I know the feeling, sadly…
