THE COMIC STRIP CAPITAL
Once upon a time …there were three friends who, in 1969, created a festival in Angoulême to celebrate the Comic Strip or Bande Dessinée (BD) in French.
Year by year , the event gathered momentum until in January 1974, the International Comic Strip Festival was born. All the main industry players were there, the press came, and the public – more than 10,000 people across three days. Angoulême, capital of the Comic Strip, was suddenly in the spotlight.
