The Blog of Gene Luen Yang - Angouleme
Angouleme 
Got back from Angouleme, France on Monday after spending the weekend at the Western Hemisphere's largest comic book festival. It was absolutely amazing. I got to meet with many of my favorite European cartoonists like Lewis Trondheim, Christophe Blain, and Joann Sfar. I even had a conversation about consciousness with living legend Moebius! Like I already said, absolutely amazing.

If you haven't heard, Shaun Tan's The Arrival took top prize at the festival, and deservedly so. I wrote a review of the book a couple of months ago for the New York Times. Tan's work is subtle and stunning at the same time. It's one of those books you can read more than once and see something different each time.
