Stands au festival de la BD d'Angoulême

All the movers and shakers of comic strip art are in Angoulême to make this an exceptional event with a packed programme of exhibitions, meetings, shows, conferences, exclusive sales of collectors’ items and - of course - the hugely popular signing sessions!

This year the Festival will pay tribute to many comic book figures who died in 2021 and 2022 such as Hiroshi Hirata, Raoul Cauvin - screenwriter of Blue Tunics, [Nikita Mandryka - author of Le Concombre Masqué](https ://www.bdangouleme.com/hommage-a-nikita-mandryka-auteur-du-concombre-masque-et-grand-prix-du-festival-dangouleme-en-1994) or even [Jean-Claude Mézières] (https://www.bdangouleme.com/hommage-a-jean-claude-mezieres), Grand Prix de la Ville in 1984, co-creator - with his great friend Pierre Christin - of the unforgettable science fiction series "Valérian and Laureline".
