Episode 119 – In Conversation About Angoulême BD Festival!

by Chris Thompson

With Karl Asaa & Paul Gravett …
Following on from last week’s inspirational duo of Sepideh Jodeyri & Miss Lasko-Gross, this week I’m joined by Karl to discuss our recent trip to Angoulême for the 42nd Festival de la Bande Dessinee d’Angoulême.
Karl and I discuss our history with the show, the numerous exhibitions we managed to see, some of the creators and fringe events we came across, and delve into the incredible swag we picked up along the way.
To close the show I chat with Paul Gravett about his memories of past festivals and how he felt about this year’s show. If you’ve never had the chance to go, here’s your chance to experience it vicariously through us!
Please note – the boutique publishers I refer to during the show are called Original Watts, and I highly recommend you check them out.
