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 and there's also his first batch of photos which are on the Flickr stream: for those of us who can't be there to enjoy.
