In the French town Angoulême, there is a huge comics fectival held every year. It's like our Comic Con, only it's not limited to one big building. The entire town is taken over, and I assume there is more wine and fun involved in Angoulême.
The French publisher Ankama is at the festival, and is announcing an ambitious plan to develop the classic French science fiction novels of Stefan Wul into a series of comics.
The Wikipedia page for Stefan Wul.
One of these books is "Oms en Série", which loosely translated means "oms linked together". "Oms" is a play on the french word for "men", or "hommes".
The Wikipedia page for the book.
I will be illustrating Oms en Série, and I couldn't be more excited about it! I'm also working with a writer I've grown very fond of, JD Morvan.
I'll have more details soon, but for now I leave you with Ankama's promo video for the line of books, as well as the promo image accompanying the announcement at the Festival.
Link for Ankama's video page.
More soon. Promise :-)
edit - For some reason the video is down. I'll post it again if it gets fixed. Sorry.
