The theme of Taiwan Pavilion in 2022 Angoulême is Taiwan Comics: Be Brave!. The key visual is created by the 2020 Golden Comic Award-Grand Prize winner NOBI Chang. Inspired by various aspects of bravery, it represents how comic artists in Taiwan keep thriving under the pandemic. Taiwan Pavilion will present over 100 titles with Taiwanese characters and international potentials,such as, Somnolences (available in French), White Crow Award winner 'Son of Formosa' (Japanese, French, and Arabic rights are sold), 'CliniClowns: Last Goodbye' (The 15th Japan International MANGA Silver Award Winner ), and 'Crouching Lion in a Bookstore' (2021 Golden Comic Awards Grand Prize).
From early 2020 well into 2021, many international events were canceled due to the pandemic. The Angoulême International Comics Festival in France was no exception, and it was the first time since Taiwan began attending the annual festival in 2012 that we were unable to travel to Angoulême and set up a live exhibit. However, with the assistance of the government’s Manga (comic) Art Grant Program, Taiwanese artists created more masterpieces than ever during this difficult time. The title and theme of Taiwan’s 2022 Angoulême exhibit is “Be Brave!” as we hope to inspire courage through the heroes of comic art, to look bravely beyond the pandemic and into the future! Taiwan’s 2022 “Be Brave!” exhibit reveals three significant aspects of bravery.
