‘Saga,’ ‘Ms. Marvel’ and ‘Nimona’ among Angouleme finalists

The 43rd Angouleme International Comics Festival takes place next month, and the organizers have released their list of nominated works in four categories: the Sélection Officielle (the general category), Sélection Jeunesse (young people), Sélection Patrimoine (classics and reprints) and Sélection Polar (mysteries and thrillers).

These graphic novels are eligible for the juried prizes at the festival, and they also make a pretty good reading list that spans the range of graphic novels being made today in Europe, North America, and Japan. As is usually the case, many have been published in English, so I’ll include the English titles, where they are different from the French titles, in parentheses.

The Angouleme International Comics Festival will be held Jan. 29-31 in Angouleme, France.
