Links! Angouleme

Although I'll likely never attend, I always love reading reports from the annual Angouleme comics festival in France, one of the largest and most important comics events in the world.  As always, Bart Beatty provides excellent coverage at The Comics Reporter.  Here are Beatty's opening, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday reports.  Mathias Wivel also reported in from the festival over at The Comics Journal, with Friday and Saturday reports, as well as commentary on this year's Grand Prix winnerDrawn & Quarterly's  Tom Devlin and Peggy Burns have also posted an extraordinary collection of photographs from the festival, here and here.

That's a self-portrait of this year's Grand Prix winner, only the third American cartoonist to be thus honored.  The winner of Angouleme's top prize serves as festival president the following year.
