Naoki Urasawa dedication - Angouleme 2018

Naoki and I


I got lucky at Angouleme and managed to meet and get a dedication from Urasawa. This year they had a large exhibition of his work at Angouleme and that combined with the Tezuka exhibition made me decide that this would be the year I finally went to Angouleme. I think Urasawa is among the most important and best artists that Manga has ever had and the exhibition was a fitting tribute. There was also a great catalog published to go along with the exhibition which I own.
