Starting in October, superheroes and manga are à la mode; often lost in the Comic Con shuffle is the vibrant European comics scene. The French Comics Association aims to change that with French Comics Framed, a month-long festival of bandes dessinées ("drawn strips"). Cooper Union hosts the central exhibition, which ranges from the classic Tintin work of Hergé to modern francophone artists like Pénélope Bagieu and David B. Other events include a conversation with Asaf and Tomer Hanuka (the illustrators behind the supernatural war story The Divine) at the Society of Illustrators on October 4; "French Comics on Screen," a panel about screen adaptations (Jean-Marc Rochette will be on hand to discuss Snowpiercer) at the School of Visual Arts on October 6; and several dedicated panels at NYCC itself. Voilà!

"French Comics Framed" is on view at Cooper Union through November 5. Click here for a list of related events.
