The 2022 edition of the Angoulême Festival rewarded a tireless chronicler of Brazilian life. Marcello Quintanilha won the Fauve d’or on Saturday March 19 with Listen, pretty Marcia (editions Here and There). This graphic novel depicts the life of a nurse in a chaotic Rio favela.
The France Télévisions Public Prize was awarded to Léa Murawiek for The Great Void (2024 editions). In her first album, the young author demonstrates a striking mastery to portray a dystopian society in which not being famous on social networks is punishable by death.

The Canadian Julie Doucet, author of “underground” comics who had never run after recognition, had for her part received the Grand Prix of the Angoulême Festival on Wednesday. Aged 56, Julie Doucet is best known for the fanzines she wrote some thirty years ago, Dirty Plotte, expressionists or even trash. Having become almost impossible to find, and an object of worship for many designers, this work was brought back to light in November thanks to its publication in one volume by the French publisher L’Association.
