Live from Angouleme!

Soleil has a free wireless internet connection in their booth, so I figured I'd take advantage of it and share some pics with you...

You know it's gonna be a good con when this is the first thing you see when you walk into the booth!

Soleil has the biggest booth at the show and it's always set up like a disco and promoted like a party, but this year that feeling is even more enhanced as instead of long tables, all the creators are now given their very own bar table with stools to sign at.


Like these guys, the artists of the various Lanfeust of Troy series...


...who draw long lines, where fans wait for hours to see them as they do free sketches for everyone who buys their books and comes to see them.


Many fans even know to bring their own chairs to make the wait a little easier!


And if the creators get tired, they have this classy sofa to kick back and chill in.


And check out who has his own signing table...


...complete with my own chandelier!


Never had my name in lights before!



More soon...

That's totally awesome CB! Apparently, not only does Soliel know how to put out some amazing comics, they also know how to make a splash at the con.
