Gipi Wins 2005 Prix Goscinny

imageThe Italian cartoonist Gipi has won the Prix Goscinny, a juried award given yearly to a young comics writer or writer-artist. It is named, of course, after Rene Goscinny; past winners include Sylvain Chomet and Joann Sfar.

This article at ActuaBD.com notes that Gipi -- who may be familiar to English-language readers through his participation in the Ignatz series from Fantagraphics -- has several books out this year (Les Innocents, Notes pour une Histoire de Guerre, Le Bocal and Exterieur Nuit) and is also a contributor to the anthology Black.

This year's distinguished jury included Anne Goscinny and Zep.
