In the Gutter #8: French Comics with Professor Annabelle Dolidon
Written by Cameron Grow on February 3, 2022
Today I explored the European side of comics specifically the French-Belgian ones with Professor of French; Anabelle Dolidon as my tour guide through books like Alone, Snowpiercer, and a little Tintin.
Catherine Meurisse’s LIGHTNESS. Jacques Tardi on WWII and his series Adele Blanc-Sec. Mathieu Bablet and his sci-fi comics such as Carbon&Silicon. Chabouté’s Alone and PARK BENCH.
Also check out some of Europe’s premier comic festivals (This is part Dolidon forgot until the end) such as: The Festival International de la Bande Dessinée (International Comics Festival) or The Festival international de la bande dessinée d’Angoulême (Angoulême International Comics Festival).
