angouleme 2011

A few pics from Angouleme's International Comics Festival 2011, just to give you a lil' taste of
what our eyes were drewling over. Amongst tones of comic books hoarded from China to Finland to
Serbia,on shelves and stands, we came across a tiny exhibition of works by Dominique Goblet,
who also held an intense discussion on her ouvre, a myriad of mind bobbling exhibits at the
Comics Museum, one unique showcase of Hong Kong bd ... feels as though i've seen enough
comics to make me vomit rainbows on a daily basis.
Also, Hardcomics Crew together with Jumatatea Plina managed to distribute a whopping 600
copies of The Book of George to future Romanian comics fans from Europe and beyond.
We met up with at least a dozen creative comics collectives and publishing houses.
Oh! and i forgot to mention the very delicate but brutal exhibition of the new generation of
Belgian bd artists which included names like: Raul, Ilan Manouach and the previously mentioned
Miss Dominique. Le Dernier Cri was also present, bastard child of the festival, protesting alongside
other likeminded anarchists. For more info check Jumatatea Plina's site during the following weeks.
à bientôt!
