Les BéDéistes

Claire and her brother would love the comic book stores in France. Here, comic books, or Bandes Dessinées are treated like art, at least by their readers. Most of them that I've seen are hardbound, and often shelved in the library, in their own section. In fact, BDs make up 10 percent of the books sold in France. Recently, the BéDéistes had a festival in Angoulême, and here are some of the BD artists who have sites online:

Manu Delente

Even if you don't read French, go and check out the gorgeous artwork. For Claire, bonnes à lire !
