Graphic Novel Festival : twice as much fun

Graphic Novel Festival : twice as much fun

Eight Francophone and Chinese graphic novels authors, discussions, workshops, improvised challenges, artistic works gifted to the audience... Sounds familiar? That’s normal: the Graphic Novel Festival was bursting with creativity last year. It’s coming back in 2017, to the greatest pleasure of Chinese readers!

Dynamic and fun, the Graphic Novel Festival aims to prove that, in China just as in France, graphic novels are not just a pastime for children but involve a real scenaristic and artistic skill.

That’s why several great figures of the adult comic book scene and graphic novel world were invited: Jean-Marc Rochette (Snowpiercer), Jul (Planet of the Wise), Lu Ming (Hard Melody), Li Zhiwu (Country of the White Stag), Penelope Bagieu (Exquisite Corpse), Chu Mi (Yinyin and the dragon sign), Yao Ren (Small contemplations), Zou Jian (Walking), Edmond Baudoin (Donkeyskin) and Thierry Robin (China Crimson).

Lu Ming has picked the Graphic Novel Festival as his "coup de cœur" among the program of the Croisements Festival, which the Graphic Novel Festival is a part of! More informations at:  http://croisements.faguowenhua.com/

The Graphic Novel Festival will take place in Beijing, Changchun and Changsha. For following the livestream on Tencent ( 11th June, 1:30 pm), please clic here

Launched in Beijing, with echoes in four cities (Changchun, Shanghai, Xiamen, Kunming), the Graphic Novel Festival was a huge success in 2016, both audience-wise and media-wise.
