Well, it's been a while since I got back from Paris Manga, can't believe where the time goes, having said that I've been a bit busy finishing off a short story submission for CLiNT, more pages for book two of Madam Samurai and a few random illos.
Anyhow, Paris, apart from meeting loads of new people, artists, writers and fans alike, the icing on the cake must have been my meal with the Aaltair gang (which consisted of publishers Patrick Chaduc and Guillaume Bresch, Charles Vess, me and Charles' wife Karen----here we are at a very swanky restaurant. Cool.
The show itself was huge, mainly featuring Jap anime/manga stuff (of course) which I think alienated us comics lot a little---Bob Layton, Clint Langley, stacks of european artists, me and Mr Vess, and other were coming and going all weekend, as usual the two days were a sea of faces and names, loads of Springheeled Jack sketches were produced. After a whistle stop tour around Paris I made my way back to the airport, arriving way too early, but better getting to the airport with time to spare I always say.
