A new movement, la nouvelle bande dessinée, has swept through French comics and now two of its most dynamic members are translated into English. Émile Bravo draws My Mommy, about a boy's yearning for his mother, and revives Belgian classic Spirou. Emmanuel Guibert chronicles one GI's experiences in Alan's War and works with photographer Didier Lefèvre to record a mission in Afghanistan in Doctors without Borders. Both will be in conversation with Comica's Paul Gravett, and will sign books.
A Comica presentation in collaboration with the 2009 International Bande Dessinée Society Conference, supported by The University of Glasgow French and German Publications Series, Liverpool University Press, European Comic Art, Fanfare/Ponent Mon and First Second Books.
