Angouleme BD international comic festival

I have for years been intrested in the International comic book festival that takes place in Angouleme france.I am an artist, that has little, or no prospects in the mainstream comic market of the United States. The European market has always held an appeal for me. The variation of storylines, colours and artistic styles. The "graphic novel" or Bandes Dessinees has been a fixture in european culture for years.Every January the beautiful town of Angouleme in the Poitou-Charentes region of France plays host to an international comic festival in which publishers, creators and exibitors from all over the world come and display their crafts.Last year, after years of procrastination. I commited myself to finally taking a look.I am deeply indebted to Mr. Stuart Ng of Stuart Ng books and Madame Christiane Douzille.Without their advice, kindness, and consent, this trip would not have been possible.

Terry Nantier of NBM

Monseiur Nantier of NBM; the formost and longest publisher of Graphic novels in the United States. Barely able to stand after a long night of boozing it up. Actually in all the years I have known Terry I have only seen him drink one glass of wine. His passion frames him, in his booth in the international section.
