2014 in Review: Jerome Bihan

What have been your personal cartooning/comics highlights of 2014?

Surely the best thing about 2014 is to have finished a collection of a monthly mini comic, that is a achievement for us for sure, we've manage to pull this off, and to be honest it was a challenge. we also got a residency until summer 2015, so we have a free studio until then!  we have more surprises in stock for 2015:  more books in English, another collection we will be launching for the Angouleme comic festival and more....tbc.

What are some of the comics you've enjoyed in 2014?

It is hard to follow the production, there is so much of it in France alone, but I tend to follow little publishers or fanzine and mini comic makers more than the big publishing houses. So this year I have been getting mini comics from Australia (minicomic of the month club) and Leipzig, Germany (Tiny masters), or Spaceface Books (U.S)

Books I enjoyed this year are:

'Pompeii' by Frank Santoro

'The End of the Fucking World' by Charles Forsman

'Ils ont de nouveaux pouvoir' by Ronald Grandpey

'Frances' by Joanna Hellgren

'Tournevis' by Olive Boogers

What is something non-comics that you have enjoyed in 2014? 

Well, it kinda is but anyway, I've given my job up. I am now only getting up for comics (and a couple of other things)

What are you looking forward to in 2015?

I have a few objectives to meet, finishing a book I started almost two years ago, keeping on doing my mini comic super8 ( I  am working on the second issue) and on the publishing side we have more projects in stock and we will like to keep on publishing other people's work too. So go 2015!!!!
