Tom Spurgeon's Web site of comics news, reviews, interviews and commentary

June 19, 2006 Various FIBD Updates

If I'm reading this mix of hard news, analysis and rhetorical questions correctly, it looks like there are a few news items worthy of note surrounding the Festival International de la Bande Dessinee in Angouleme. First, they have a new president, founder Francis Groux. Second, Gerard Balesiane and Ludovic Blanchier were made vice-president and treasurer, respectively. Third, the deficit caused by 2006's show with its construction problems and non-glamorous Grand Prix winner may not have been as big as first expected. There's also some sort of museum dispute reported in that piece that I'm not getting at all.
