Angoulême 2013, allons-y!

I can't really believe this, but we're actually going to the Festival International de la Bande Dessinée d'Angoulême, in France. We wanted to go for so long and, finally, we're not only going, but we're doing it big style, with books published (Daytripper and Casanova), invited by the publisher (Urban Comics), running for the main prize (We're also up for the "Cultura - Public's choice award" and everyone can vote here until February 2nd). Well, we couldn't be happier.

We'll meet new people, find new comics (or BDs), speak a lot of French. After 16 years going to SDCC (San Diego Comic Con International), I believe this will give us a whole new perspective on the meaning of Comics Festival.

But like any other show, we have our schedule and commitments, and here it is so people can find us easier. We have signings (dédicaces) from friday through sunday over the Urban Comics booth (L3 at the Le Monde des Bulles area) and we'll have one spotlight panel because of Daytripper's nomination for the award (everyone on the official selection has their half hour spotlight panel). So here it comes:

Friday, February 1st:
- Dédicaces from 15h to 18h
Urban Comics stand: L3, Le Monde des Bulles

Saturday, February 2nd:
- Dédicaces from 15h to 17h15 
Urban Comics stand: L3, Le Monde des Bulles

- Panel: 18h00
moderated by Martin Zeller
Espace Selection Officielle Cultura CM17, Le Monde des Bulles (Durée : 0h30) 

Sunday, February 3rd:
- Dédicaces from 14h to 15h45
Urban Comics stand: L3, Le Monde des Bulles

Nous nous voyons la.
