Comic Heights  11 (Review)


I went to ‘the World’s First African Bandes Dessinée Salon’ not knowing quite what to expect. It was held in Paris in the dead posh Mairie of the 5th arrondisement, just opposite the Pantheon near the Sorbonne. The setting was plush, and I showed up on time ... only to find people still unpacking boxes and boxes of books.

Those books, spread out on tables, answered the question: are there many African Bandes Dessinées (BD)? Answer, plenty, some of them of extraordinarily high quality and great publishing successes.
