Review: ANDY: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF ANDY WARHOL by Typex

"Typex delivers such a detail-rich account in this 562-page book and leaves you wanting more! He does this by keeping to a crisp and finely-tuned and organized narrative. We go from one period of time to the next, evoking the quotidian while distilling the essential. In the process, the reader is treated to a behind-the-scenes look at Andy Warhol’s personal and professional life." Comics Grinder writes up ANDY just in time for Typex's appearances at #Alaac19 -- find him today at the French Comics Showcase panel at 2:30pm at the Graphic Novel and Gaming Stage!

The cartoonist Typex presents a comics biography of the artist Andy Warhol that is like nothing you’ve ever seen before. If you thought you knew Andy Warhol, then read Andy: The Life and Time…

Andy | The Comics Journal

"Andy is a heavy book—it demands that you sit and approach it with intent. Those that do will be rewarded with a substantial, intelligent life story. I hope this book will inspire future comics biographers to create works that do more than recap a person’s existence and achievements. The little details of a person’s existence count as much as the big moments and help us better understand what made a person tick. Andy offers a deep graphic immersion into an enigmatic life." Typex's ANDY reviewed at The Comics Journal -- meet the creator at booth #3644 at #Alaac19

Biographies have become a driving force in the graphic novel industry. As a mainstream genre, they seem to attract mediocrity; they’re a perfect fit for the bland, not-going-to-offend-anyone stance that typifies much of the mainstream graphic novel market. We’re fortunate to have comics biograph...

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 …”

Lucky Luke, a Cowboy in Paris

"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.
