The winners of the major awards (called “fauves”) at the Angouleme International Comics Festival were announced Saturday evening in a ceremony that has turned out to be quite controversial: The emcee came on and announced the nine winners, only to be followed by two actresses who revealed it was all a joke, after which the real awards were presented.
We’ll have more on that shortly, but first of all, here’s the list of the actual winners:
Fauve d’Or (best album): Ici, by Richard McGuire (published in English as Here)
