An exhibition on French comic books will take place in Hà Nội with participation of famous comic painters Alexandre Clerisse and Aurelie Neyret.

The seminar ‘Overview on the history of French comic books until 2000’ will be held at 6pm today with the participation of Thierry Groensteen, director of the International Centre for Comics and Image in Angouleme. He is also curator of the exhibition.

Until the end of the 19th century, comic books developed at a slow pace, usually appearing as picture books or in satirical journals. A while after, they were overshadowed when magazines for kids came to the market, then came the rise of American comic books. From the late 1960s, French comic books thrived and saw significant innovations. The number of comic albums rose and new genres appeared: romantic-comedy, autobiography and documentary.

Historian Groensteen retraces the history of comic books and pays tribute to the greatest comic artists up until the beginning of the 21st century in this seminar/exhibition held until August 10 at L’Espace, 24 Tràng Tiền Street, Hà Nội.

The performance will take place at 7.30pm at the Goethe Institute, 56-58 Nguyễn Thái Học Street, Hà Nội.
