France: guest of honour - Frankfurt 17

The summer is officially upon us! But we are already busy preparing the 2017 Frankfurter Buchmesse, to be held from October 11-15. As always, our team will be there to meet with you and discuss our publishers’ latest projects. Don’t forget: this year marks France’s status as the Fair’s Guest of Honor. In addition to expanded international media attention and programming throughout the year, many a French creative mind will converge upon the Fair to participate in events of all kinds.

Our list of invited artists and writers includes such eminences as Didier Conrad, Guy Delisle, Jean-Yves Ferri, Wilfrid Lupano, Catherine Meurisse, Jean-Claude Mézières, Riad Sattouf, David Vandermeulen, and Yoann. We’ll have another update before the Fair, but for now, we will leave you with a link to Ping Pong, a new blog featuring a variety of articles by authors from France and Germany – including tributes, sample pages, and columns – all dedicated to the Franco-German comics scene.

In the meantime, we wish you a safe, sunny summer with plenty of beachside and backyard comics and graphic novels reading. Take a look at the titles below to get an idea of what our publishers have been cooking up recently.
