Seven Hong Kong comics artists and professionals are here to share with you their Angoulême saga!
Comics fans would be familiar with the annual Angoulême International Comics Festival. As the third largest comics festival in the world, it attracts fans from all age groups around the world. In January this year, HKAC has for the sixth consecutive years participated in the festival with Hong Kong delegation. Comics artists who are used to working solo with their tools and computers walked into a comics festival with 200,000 visiting guests and tell stories of Hong Kong comics creations. Apart from showing their best works, they also did live drawing demonstrations! Indulging in their own world of creation, not noticing that they have already attracted a large crowd! There were even fans from other countries who came all the way there to meet and greet their admired Hong Kong comic artists!
Surprising experiences are certainly more than that! The Hong Kong delegation also took their chances to visit the many exhibitions, master classes, performances, comics book fairs during the festival. Comics works on show included classics by masters and fascinating works by the young and talented. Special exhibitions for the 80th anniversary of Batman and for the cyberpunk classics BLAME! by the Japanese comics artists Tsutomu Nihei are both feasts for the eyes. The 350 publishing houses of different sizes were delighting in their own ways, with equal attention paid to the independent publishing houses. What a wonderful occasion for them to go on a comics shopping spree!
Come and hear the exciting Angoulême Saga from seven Hong Kong comics artists and professionals, learn about what they gained out of this trip to France!
