Wim Lockefeer writes a regular column on the Forbidden Planet blog on European comics (or bande dessinee) and is currently at the Angouleme comics festival, a comics con held in France where the comics medium is treated as the ninth art and taken seriously.

We in poor old Blighty can only sigh when people say comics - aren't they just for kids here, but it is getting better.

Anyway he has just emailed in his first report, which you can find over at http://forbiddenplanet.co.uk/blog/?p=11421 and there's also his first batch of photos which are on the Flickr stream: http://www.flickr.com/photos/forbidden_planet_international/tags/angouleme/ for those of us who can't be there to enjoy.
