Angoulême International Comics Festival Report 2017 (Part 1)

This is the first of a 3 part series on the Comics Workbook Experience at the 44th Angoulême International Comics Festival.

Before we get into all dissecting and reflecting on this latest edition of the heavy weight championship of comics expos, Angoulême, let’s go for a stroll, take it easy and soak it all in. What do you say?

Intentionally presented free of commentary, this series of photos invites you to take a look and see what tickles your eye. In depth reflections on this edition of the annual festival appears in the next next installment of this Comics Workbook Festival News series.

In the next installment I’ll unpack some of these photos and with some links to outposts and hubs online to explore the perspectives that were present at this spectacular Festival.
