Bande Dessinee in English

* NEW FEATURE! The name above the title is a link. Click on it to bring up all the books related to that artist or author!

European comics in English! Less than one percent of European comics are translated into English. Often the U.S. print runs are miniscule in comparison with the European print run and sometimes the English language versions become quite rare. Along with French Bande Dessinee, you will also find here comics originally published in Italy and Spain.
