Nominees announced for Angouleme comics festival

The 42nd Angouleme International Comics Festival is coming up Jan. 29, and over the Thanksgiving holiday organizers announced the nominations for the four juried prizes: the Sélection Officielle (the general category), Sélection Jeunesse (young people), Sélection Patrimoine (classics and reprints) and Sélection Polar (mysteries and thrillers).

Angouleme lives up to the "international" part of its name, as many of the selections were first published in English, including Chris Ware's Building Stories, Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples' Saga, and Jillian and Mariko Tamaki's This One Summer.

See the full list below.
