Angouleme 2019

Here are the books that arrived in our latest shipment of European imports. There are a variety of art books and French graphic novels. These include my selection of new titles from all the major French bande dessinee publishers, limited edition monographs published by the Angouleme BD Festival, art books from Ominiky Ediciones in Spain, and some art books and comics from Belgium and the Netherlands. There are also rare and out-of-print books I scouted at Angouleme and over nine days in Paris.
