Scenes from the auspicious grand opening of the Statue of Liberty Museum, with LUCKY LUKE and Jul as special guests! #FrenchComics
Last night, Lucky Luke’s new writer Jul was invited to the gala celebrating the opening of the brand new Statue of Liberty Museum on Liberty Island, New York City. Jul wrote the latest (in French) Lucky Luke adventure, "A Cowboy in Paris", which revolves around Lady Liberty’s trials on both sides of the Atlantic. This connection, and famous designer (and godmother to the museum) Diane Von Fürstenberg’s support, earned a few pages of the comic a place in the permanent exhibition, and Jul an invitation to the star-studded event … where he met some rather well-known people!
“Give me your tired, your comic-deprived, your huddled masses yearning for a good read, the wretched refuse of your barren bookshops …”

"While in the desert, Lucky Luke finds a giant bronze hand belonging to the statue designed by Auguste Bartholdi (1834-1904), gifted to America by the French in the late 19th century. The image is also reminiscent of the final scene of Franklin J. Shaffner’s movie Planet of the Apes."
Lucky Luke is the main character in a Francophone comic-book series, but is all but unknown in the United States where the market is dominated by superheroes from the Marvel franchise. For the firs…

#FrenchComics are coming to the NCSFest in force! French Comics Association is partnering with Europe Comics, Wallonie-Bruxelles International, and Québec
and Lyon BD Festival Festival to bring an incredible line-up of creators for the first-ever #NCSFest in Huntington Beach, CA.
Along with the creators, a special exhibition is on tour: “French Comics Framed” presents a selection of 80 bande dessinée illustrations from major Franco-Belgian artists over the past 70 years. From much-loved icons like Tintin and Astérix to sophisticated graphic novels; from masters of sci-fi to sociopolitical documentaries, enter a journey through the wonderful diversity of French comics. The exhibition exposes the varied architectures that structure the design and narrative of the bande dessinée form and includes works for all audiences.

Guantánamo Kid is out now from SelfMadeHero #FrenchComics
Guantanamo Kid is the powerful tale of a Chadian boy caught up in a Kafkaesque nightmare of injustice and mistreatment at the hands of the United States in Guantanamo. Tubiana has recorded the experience of Mohammed El-Gharani, a fourteen year old at the time of his arrest, his appalling incarcerati...
"As with Audubon Jérémie Royer’s artwork is utterly sublime and perhaps even more gorgeous this time around. His classical Euro style has the expressive small eyes of a classic Bande Dessinée and are mixed with some beautifully rendered landscapes, seascapes that are truly breath taking."
If you loved Fabien Grolleau and Jérémie Royer's award-winning AUDUBON, get to your local store to catch DARWIN sailing in! Out now.
Fabian Grolleau and Jérémie Royer’s follow up to Audubon: On The Wings of the World, continues the same beautiful and thought provoking look at the history of a prominent 18th century scientist in Darwin: An Unexpected Journey.
In this excerpt from 'Tyler Cross: Angola, Cross,' Nury and Brüno’s 1940s criminal antihero, finds himself imprisoned in Louisiana’s notoriously brutal Angola State Prison after an easy insurance scam turns into a doublecross.

"Flore Piacentino, project manager, French Publishers Association/Syndicat national de l’edition, tells LJ that “half of the [French] population reads at least one Bande dessinée per year, with 35 percent of books borrowed [from libraries] in France being graphic novels.” Furthermore, over the past decade, sales of French comics for adults and children, manga, and American comics have strongly increased. Highlighting the growing success of translated French works for American audiences, Piacentino says that “each year, translation rights for more than 200 French comics are sold to American publishers.” #FrenchComics featured in Library Journal!
