Prizes Being Given Out Leading Up To Angouleme

This article by Didier Pasamonik has a round-up of winners of prizes affiliated with the time of the year that the FIBD takes place in Angouleme if not the festival itself. It's a crucial time of the year for that industry, particularly with the conventional wisdom that there are more titles than the market can handles just from a sift-and-find perspective.

I'm not sure I understood all of the looping, enthusiastic prose in that piece, but I did get from it that Le Grand Mechant Penard by Benjamin Renner won the Prix De La BD De FNAC from a pool of 30 nominees. That's confirmed here. That's an interesting award for its direct merchant tie-in, and I'd be fascinated to see an American equivalent and what its winners said about the North American marketplace.
