"La Semaine de la Bande Dessinée - A Week Celebrating the French Graphic Novel" got off to a great start last night at the Alliance Française of Seattle, as a standing-room-only crowd gathered to see our own Kim Thompson present his slide lecture "Vingt sur 20: French Comics from Goscinny to Satrapi," an informative and entertaining overview of 20 artists who transformed la bande desinée from a children's medium into "the ninth art." We are working on presenting this slideshow in interactive format, with audio, here on the Fantagrahpics website in the near future, so stay tuned! And don't forget that this week-long event continues tonight with screenings of Tintin et Moi at Northwest Film Forum and David B.'s "My Story, My Stories" exhibit opening and book signing at our bookstore tomorrow!
