Angouleme, Here I Come?

The question mark is as of today what with that horrible snowstorm dropping bricks of snow on us. My flight tomorrow night’s already been cancelled.

Well, hopefully the next day I can leave and make it there for the first time in 4 years. I used to be a regular but dropped out for a while as going to Frankfurt in October and Bologna in March was plenty enough for me.

BUT that deprived me of even being in my other country, France. And boy, have I missed it.

The show this year looks to have quite a bit from our side of the water: A Calvin & Hobbes exhibit, since Watterson was given the grand prize last year and a Kirby exhibit. But I’ll be there to mingle with France’s numerous exciting small pubs and with editors and authors mostly.

And, hey, also after 4 years absence, see my old pal starting from 7th grade Marc Minoustchine, the M in NBM, as well as my family I haven’t seen in over a decade! Gah!
