Jean-Pierre Gibrat’s Flight of the Raven has added a 2018 Harvey Award Nomination for Best European Book to its two Eisner Award nods (and Agouléme Festival award for Best Artist!). We at EuroComics love Jean-Pierre’s graphic novels. In addition to releasing the prequel The Reprieve, we have signed a deal to present his current series—Mattéo. The first book in this multi-volume series will be released in December.
Two years ago, Corto Maltese: Beyond the Windy Isles won Best American Edition of Foreign Material at the 2016 Harvey Awards. We are crossing our fingers that Flight of the Raven can join the club!
Winners will be announced at the Harvey Awards 30th Anniversary Celebration on October 5th during ReedPOP’s New York Comic Con.
