Lots of manga made the list of the nominations for best comics of the year at next month’s Angoulême International Comics Festival, and lots of them are familiar names—but a few aren’t. In addition to Yoshihiro Tatsumi’s A Drifting Life, Kaoru Mori’s A Bride’s Story, and Kanata Konami’s Chi’s Sweet Home, there are a number of tempting titles that haven’t been translated into English yet: Saint Young Men, Osamu Tezuka’s Boku no Manga Jinsei (My Manga Life), and Issei Eifuku and Taiyo Matsumoto’s Takemitsuzamurai. Check the full list (in French), but be warned that the titles and covers will be different from what you are used to!
