June 23: French Comics Kiss Better: A French Comics Creators Showcase


French Comics Kiss Better: A French Comics Creators Showcase

 · Hosted by Fantom Comics and 2 others

  • Sunday, June 23, 2019 at 5:30 PM – 7 PM

  • Fantom Comics
    2010 P St NW, 3rd Floor, Washington, District of Columbia 20036
For the weekend of the American Library Association Annual, we are partnering with the French Comics Association to bring you this event!

This panel offers a rare opportunity to meet French and European artists on tour, who represent the contemporary bande dessinée (BD) scene. French comics are familiar American bestsellers, from Tintin to Persepolis to Valerian, but fans can discover the diversity in genres—from steampunk fantasy to crime fiction to graphic biography and historical fiction—and vibrant/sophisticated art styles from the next generation of creators who are "big in France." This ultra-cool panel will be followed by a comics party with drinks available for purchase!

Featuring 2019 Eisner-Award nominee Wilfrid Lupano (Sea of Love and Curtain Call); Typex (Andy: The Life and Times of Andy Warhol); Julia Billet (Catherine's War); and Karim Friha (Rise of the Zelphire). Moderated by Brigid Alverson
