Go, Read: Jeff Smith In Lucca

image

Click through the image above to read Bone's Jeff Smith conclude his European tour blogging with a long post about his stay in Lucca in and around their comics festival; Smith turns out to be an excellent travel blogger, with tons of photos and a pleasant travelogue tone. This is also great because I'd been looking around in vain for a Lucca report in English to link to, because it's a still-important if more old-fashioned European convention. Smith points out one reason that the graphic novel and manga assault might be compelling to European comics readers -- the traditional strength of the very rigid album format.
