We’re proud to announce another gorgeous book and another Angoulême winner! Jean-Pierre Gibrat received the Best Artist Award for his lushly colored “Flight of the Raven,” which we’ll release in January 2017.
It’s one of the most stunningly beautiful comics of the 21st Century. The story takes place in Paris during the German Occupation and stars a memorable heroine—the French Resistance fighter named Jeanne. With the help of an apolitical cat burglar named François, she tries to save her comrades, including her missing sister Cécile, from a double-agent and the Gestapo. They walk in the places between shadows, as Gibrat uses the evocative Paris rooftops and river barges on the Seine almost as separate characters. The book also includes a portfolio of pin-ups featuring its heroine and features a new translation by Brandon Kander and Diana Schutz.
