Speaking of awards for comics in other countries, Bart Beaty has the scoop on the Festival International de la bande dessinée set for Jan. 28-31, 2010 in Agoulême, France. Three comics from Japan made the awe-inspiring list of official selections:

  • Le Vagabond de Tokyo, Fukutani Takashi, Le Lézard noir
  • Included in the sélection jeunesse were:

  • Astro Boy, Osamu Tezuka, Kana (published in English by Dark Horse)
  • Fairy Tail, Hiro Mashima, Pika (published in English by Del Rey)
  • Une sacrée mamie, Saburô Ishikawa et Yôshichi Shimada, Delcourt
  • Included in the sélection patrimoine were:

  • Cyborg 009, Shotaro Ishinomori, Glénat (partially published in English by Tokyopop, rights reverted to Kodansha, I believe)
  • Sarutobi, Osamu Tezuka, Cornelius
