Comic book museum opens in France

The Musée de la bande dessinée in Angoulème, a museum dedicated entirely to comic books, has opened in south-west France.

Within a converted factory visitors can now find in excess of 8,000 original drawings and approximately 110,000 magazines and comics. Of course, the best names in Europe are there: André Franquin (the creator of Gaston Lagaffe and Marsupilami), René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo (Asterix & Obelix), and Hergé, creator of Tintin.
