Local cartoonists featured at comic festival in Paris


PARIS–Artworks created by 14 Taiwanese cartoonists are the featured attraction at a comic festival currently being held in Centre Pompidou in Paris, France.

Chen Hung-yao, a renowned cartoonist, and six other comic artists have been participating in Planet Manga, a months-long show put on by the Taiwan-based Anytime Holding Group.

The 47-year-old Chen, who attended the Angouleme International Comics Festival — the largest comic show in Europe — in January, said Thursday a number of art galleries and international publishers have shown interest in his work.
