Your Various Angouleme Prize-Winners, 2014, As Best As I Can Figure Out From New Mexico


I may wait to get this together a little better -- none of the Americans on hand seem to be live-tweeting -- but it looks like the big news for US comics readers so far is that nice man Derf Backderf winning for the French publication of My Friend Dahmer. He'll share with Peter Blegvad, neither of whom to our market would be a debut-book candidate, but that makes this prize nicer in some ways, I think. Since I wrote those last two sentences, Rutu Modan won for the French-language version of her The Property and Ted Stearn won for a collection of his Fuzz & Pluck work; also, Cowboy Henk.

Update: Okay, the official list is up here, and I've since double-checked what I have against this list.

* Prix De Meilleur Album: Come Prima, Alfred (Delcourt)
* Prix Du Public Cultura: Mauvais Genre, Chloé Cruchaudet (Delcourt)
* Prix Spécial Du Jury: La Propriété, Rutu Modan (Actes Sud BD)
* Prix De La Série: Fuzz & Pluck Vol. 2, Ted Stearn (Cornelius)
* Prix Révélation: Le Livre De Léviathan, P. Blegvad (L'Apocalypse) and Mon Ami Dahmer, Derf Backderf (Ca et La)
* Prix jeunesse: Les Carnets de Cerise -- Le Livre d'Hector Joris Chamblain and Aurélie Neyret (Soleil)
* Prix Du Patrimoine: Cowboy Henk by Herr Seele and Kamagurka (Fremok)
* Fauve Polar SNCF: Ma Révérence, Rodguen And Wilfrid Lupano (Delcourt)
* Prix De LA BD Alternative: Un Fanzine carré, Various (Unfanzine)

Congratulations to all of the winners. A selection of the nominated books appears here.
