Guy Delisle wins gold at French comic book awards

Guy Delisle’s latest graphic novel, Jerusalem: Chronicles from the Holy City, has been named best comic book of the year at the 39th Angoulême International Comics Festival. The Quebec-born artist was presented with the Fauve d’Or on Sunday as part of the closing festivities at the annual comics festival in the southwest of France, touted as the biggest comics convention in the world.

Delisle’s book, a memoir of the author’s time living in East Jerusalem, titled Chroniques de Jérusalem and published by Éditions Delcourt in France, was selected by the jury from among 58 comics published in French between December 2010 and November 2011. The English-language version of the graphic novel is forthcoming from Drawn & Quarterly in April.
