SNB Special guest PIERRE ALARY at sdcc 2011

For 2011 we were privileged to welcome Pierre Alary to our booth at comic con (for a THIRD TIME!) to sign his books and meet his fans. Stuart discovered Pierre's books on a trip to Angouleme and introduced Pierre to the US with Pierre's amazing BD series Belladone. Pierre's latest work is a 3 volume BD series of Sinbad, which has been a hit with our patrons as well. Here are Pierre and Stuart at our booth 5012.

Our signings this year were hosted by our good friend John Flesk (in the grey shirt) at his Flesk publications booth, directly across the aisle at booth 5019. Check out John's terrific blog for latest news and behind the scenes stories from this indie publisher

Here is Stuart reviewing some of the original works Pierre brought with him:

Pierre was only at comic con for 2 days, but signed on both days to try to see as many fans as possible

Pierre enjoyed talking with his fans about his work in French comics, as well as his time as an animator at the Disney studio in France.

In the French style, Pierre did large sketches, as well as signing books for his fans.

Here's a fan who brought her entire collection of Pierre's books!

While his time with us was limited, Pierre's appearance was a highlight for all of us at this year's con. We hope to welcome him back again soon!
