Katsuhiro Otomo Wins the Angoulême International Comics Festival’s Top Prize

The 42nd annual Angoulême International Comics Festival awarded Katsuhiro Otomo the Grand Prix award for lifetime achievement. Otomo is the first Japanese manga artist to win the award. The other nominees for the award included Alan Moore and Hermann.

Katsuhiro Otomo was one of the nominees for the Grand Prix award in 2014, but Calvin & Hobbes creator Bill Watterson won the award that year.

The Angoulême International Comics Festival launched in 1974 as an event celebrating comics from countries throughout the world.
