Mangoulême 2011

It doesn’t feel like there are as many Japanese titles nominated as usual in the various categories for the upcoming Festival International de la Bande Dessinée in Angoulême, but it’s always worth a look:

Sélection Officielle:

  • La Chenille, by Suehiro Mauro and Edogawa Rampo, published by Le Lezard Noir
  • Sélection Patrimoine:
