Comic strip is today a form of artistic expression that has become essential in Europe, the United States or Japan. The comics publishing market is in constant growth, and each audience can find an author, a collection, that will meet their tastes. It is also a major source of inspiration and the interaction with other media is two-way: many movies, television series, video games, novels or exhibitions resume and adapt the characters or stories of the ninth art. It is part of a wider industrial sector that will be called AVGC (for Animation, Video-Game, Comics) in this presentation.
The symposium’s aim is to bring together Vietnamese illustrators, writers, editors, filmmakers, artists, journalists, publishers, critics and other cultural professionals and experts to reflect on the conditions of the emergence of a Vietnamese Cultural & Creative Industry (CCI) based on an image-creation ecosystem. In particular, it will present the way in which the comic publishing sector has developed in France and Germany.
