Le Monde: Bill Watterson Wins Grand Prix At FIBD
I can't imagine he's there for the announcement, but someone not being there isn't unheard of, especially in the days when there weren't even finalists lists.
jesus... would he accept?
if he accepts, would he go?
could he do the presidency duties or some semblence thereof without going?
would this possibly rope in the forthcoming Billy Ireland exhibit in which he is participating?
the growth in admiration for Watterson's excellent newspaper strip since
its retirement is a remarkable comics story.
I still think a manga artist is way overdue, and hope that happens in the next few years.
if this is true and it happens, and it makes a Richard Thompson exhibit over there possible, I would love that.
that is two Americans in... four years, I think. Actually, yes: Spiegelman, Denis, Willem/Toriyama, Watterson. And a lot of Americans will want to attend next year's show.
paging Lee Salem...
