Apologies if anyone is finding this comics stuff a bit esoteric, but it’s all part of my journey (and gets a little more dramatic in upcoming posts). Just before things got a bit sticky at JBP, the Speakeasy crowd descended on a festival in Angoulême, France. I wrote about it at the time, and having re-read the article, I still quite like it. So as an example of me having a good time, and a snapshot of what the UK comics industry was like at the time, I thought you might like to read it.
I guess the words are my copyright. Many thanks to the wonderful Hunt Emerson for kind permission to reproduce his one-page Angoulême strip. I have no idea where Brad! Brooks, who provided the other cartoon, is these days.
This is what I wrote … Angoulême 1990: the Brits Abroad
