Angoulême is the biggest and oldest festival in France. Each year, this small city gets totally crazy about comics with something like 250 000 people attending the Festival International de la Bande Dessinée (FIBD) . The festival has unfortunatly only a very small amount of pages in english (quite surprising I think when you want to be called “International”, but anyway, we french people are a shame when it comes to speaking other languages…).
And the good news is … that Kim Jung Gi will be attending 🙂 I am sorry to announce it only now, so close to the event, but this was sort of a last minute for me as i learned about it only 2 days ago. KJG will be performing at a Concert Dessiné event (Illustrated Concert) on saturday around 14:00. He will also be signing and sketching (and you know how good he is at that !!!). You will find him at the Bruno Graff booth (H2) in the Para-BD section (Place des Halles)of the festival. Thanks Bruno for allowing us to get a space at your place 🙂
I think there should also be some signing/sketching on friday from 2:00 to 4:00, probably at the Korean exhibition, but this, i’m not totaly sure.
I’ll try to post more information when I have them, stay tuned !
