In the absence of newcomers this week in our fiction and essay charts, let’s talk a little about the very popular genre (especially by young people) of manga and other comics. Which, if notified here, would sweep away most “classic” works.
So let’s salute Asterix and the Griffin, first in front of the Prix Goncourt, before declining the wave of illustrated books: the mangaka Eiichiro Oda (One Piece – Original Edition T. 100, Glénat), stainless steel Blake et Mortimer (volume 28), the duo Christophe Blain and Jean-Marc Jancovici (The Endless World, Dargaud), the sympathetic Riad Sattouf (The Young Actor, volume 1, Books of the future), Kaze’s bestseller, Naoya Matsumoto with two manga (Kaiju n ° 8 T. 2 and T. 1), but also the cartoonists Etienne Davodeau (The Law of the soil. Diary of a vertigo, Futuropolis), Catherine Meurisse (The Young Woman and the Sea, Dargaud), Penelope Bagieu (The Strata, Gallimard BD), Mr Tan and Diane Le Feyer (Mortal Adele. Weird Show !, Bayard Jeunesse), Philippe Francq and Eric Giacometti (Largo Winch T. 23, Dupuis) or even Fabcaro (Moon River, Six feet under) … To be placed under the trees. MP
