Yesterday I was in Angoulême for the BD Festival. First time there. It was huge, and one day is definitely not enough to visit the place. I did not plan to buy anything, since I am no great BD lover (unlike others close by who were frantic for hours and hours - and did not even stop to feed themselves).
But, - there is a but - , of couse, I have been weak.

I am weak.
