    Due to popular demand, we’ll be featuring The Best of Pop Culture Hound every second Sunday here at Multiversity Comics.

    This week, as Chris prepares for his fifth visit to the Festival International de la Bande Dessinée (Angoulême), we present his report from the 42nd edition back in 2015.

    Chris and his special guest Karl discuss their history with the show, the numerous exhibitions they managed to see, some of the creators and fringe events they came across, and delve into the incredible swag they picked up along the way.

    To close the show, Chris chats with Paul Gravett about his memories of past festivals and how he felt about this year’s show. If you’ve never had the chance to go, here’s your chance to experience it vicariously through us!

    Please note: the boutique publishers referred to during the show are called Original Watts, and we highly recommend you check them out.

    Chris Thompson

    Chris Thompson emerged from the womb suckling on the teat of popular culture. He loves comics and films in equal measure (though not always together) and genuinely enjoys subtitled features, particularly French ones. When not indulging his passions, he’s working with them as a brand manager for Titan Comics – clearly not the best work-life balance one could have. In the rare moments he’s not working, Chris enjoys travel and is often headed to a festival or event of some kind. You can follow him on Twitter @popculturehound and subscribe to Pop Culture Hound via iTunes.
