angoulemeComiXology and Amazon are celebrating the 42nd Angoulême International Comics Festival with special spotlights and sales on digital comics. The Angoulême International Comics Festival takes place in Angoulême, France and runs from January 29th to February 1st. Now in its 42nd year, the festival is the premier comics show in Europe with over 200,000 attendees every year and playing host to creators, cartoonists, publishers, and fans from around the world. It’s a massive show and frankly doesn’t get enough coverage by US centered comic blogs. It’s on the long list of conventions we’d like to go to…. some day…..

This year marks comiXology’s third year attending the Angoulême International Comics Festival in France and they’ll be covering the show themselves through various social media under the “All Access Angoulême” moniker.

ComiXology will also be running a sale running today through February 1st featuring a whole host of French content available in multiple languages and rounded out with a selection of titles from creators around the world, giving fans a curated taste of the international comics scene.
