Prix Asie, belatedly

I was completely obsessed with this awards program last year, and I completely overlooked the 2010 finalists for the Prix Asie of the Association des Critique et Journalistes de Bande Dessinée (ACBD), in spite of the fact that Tom (The Comics Reporter) Spurgeon posted the list months ago. Here they are:

  • Deux expressos de Kan Takahama, Casterman
  • Folles passions de Kazuo Kamimura, Kana
  • L’Île Panorama de Maruo Suehiro d’après Edogawa Ranpo, Casterman
  • Le Juge Bao de Chongrui Nie et Patrick Marty, Fei
  • Pluto de Naoki Urasawa d’après Osamu Tezuka, Kana
  • ACBD has also posted a list of what you might call runners-up, other worthy work from the period under consideration. You can find it on this page if you scroll down a bit.

    One Response to Prix Asie, belatedly

      Kazuo Kamimura: I’m only mildly curious about the title cited (it’s apparently set in the “floating world” of early 19th-century Edo), but I’m impatiently waiting for the 3 volumes of Lorsque nous vivions ensemble (cited by Frederick Schodt in Manga! Manga! as “The Age of Cohabitation” (Dosei Jidai). First published in the early 1970s, it’s the story of a young Japanese couple living together without marriage, in a period when that choice could cause real damage to those who made it. Le Fleuve Shinano / Shinano River, about a young woman coming of age in the 1930s, also looks intriguing.
