The Blog of Gene Luen Yang - Angouleme
Angouleme 
Got back from Angouleme, France on Monday after spending the weekend at the Western Hemisphere's largest comic book festival. It was absolutely amazing. I got to meet with many of my favorite European cartoonists like Lewis Trondheim, Christophe Blain, and Joann Sfar. I even had a conversation about consciousness with living legend Moebius! Like I already said, absolutely amazing.

If you haven't heard, Shaun Tan's The Arrival took top prize at the festival, and deservedly so. I wrote a review of the book a couple of months ago for the New York Times. Tan's work is subtle and stunning at the same time. It's one of those books you can read more than once and see something different each time.

MERRY (BELATED) CHRISTMAS & HAPPY (BELATED) NEW YEAR! 
I can't believe it's been well over a month since I last updated. I've had a busy December. Seriously. But Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I'm going to be at the Fremont Main Library this coming Saturday (1/12/08) from 3 to 4pm. The Fremont Main is an absolutely gorgeous library, so even if you don't come to see me, come to check out the library! My son LOVES their children's section. Here's the address:

Fremont Main Library

Fox Bunny Funny 


Top Shelf Comix has recently published Fox Bunny Funny , my friend Andy Hartzell's latest graphic novel. Fox Bunny Funny is completely wordless and utterly engrossing. It's one of those stories that can be read in many, many different ways. The story is determined almost as much by what the reader brings to the table as what the author has put on the page.

Good As Lily 


This entry is months late, but in case you haven't heard, comics wunderkind Derek Kirk Kim and master illustrator Jesse Hamm have released their latest work, Good As Lily from Minx. Minx is line of graphic novels from DC Comics targeted at teenage girls, but enjoyed by all age groups and both genders. Good As Lily is my favorite so far, but I have to admit I'm biased because both Derek and Jesse are good buddies.
