Cartooning For Peace.

THE PRESS KIT for this year’s Angoulême fest is produced by 9eArt+ and designed by Le Goff & Gabarra, the ‘Wise Design Studio’ of creative directors Camille Gabarra and Tugdual Le Goff. See their beautiful work HERE.

A highlight in Angoulême is the exhibit about Petite histoire de la révolution française, by Grégory Jarry et Otto T.

The Grand Jury of 2017 is presided by Posy Simmonds from London, England, who’s against a Brexit.

This year’s attractions are, among others and in no particular order, Hermann, Will Eisner, Franquin, Mézières et Christin, Alex Alice, Kazuo Kamimura, Loo Hui Phang, Outsider Comics, Disney artists, Sophie Guerrive, Philippe Dupuy, French Marvel Panini Comics, Grégory Jarry & Otto T.

See some of the latest French books on Disney’s Mickey Mouse, HERE.

This is the 57-page Press Kit for the 44th edition. The cover and poster show mainly male attributes connected to war and battle.

All Festival Cats are drawn by Lewis Trondheim.
