The comic book Les Voyages d’Ulysse has won the prestigious Grand Prix de la critique ACBD 2017. The publication of Daniel Maghen is already in its second reprint (third print) by Graphius.

ACBD stands for ‘Association des Critiques de BD’ is a panel of 88 specialized journalists and critics from the written, audiovisual and online press. This year, the Grand Prix was chosen from as many as 3,962 new titles in all French-speaking areas in Europe (France, Belgium and Switzerland) that have been published between November 1, 2015 and October 31, 2016.

It is the Grand Prix de la critique ACBD’s ambition to “support and develop, in a spirit of discovery, a comic book that has appeared in French, with strong narrative and graphic elements, and that stands out with its strength, originality, the novelty of the subject or the means used by the author.”

The book was created by Emmanuel Lepage, René Follet (both graphic artists) and Sophie Michel (who wrote the texts). In Les Voyages d’Ulysse, they tell the story of the young painter Jules Toulet who embarks on a ship headed by Salomé Ziegler, a mysterious and female captain, in search of the missing fellow painter Ammôn Kasacz. The story refers very clearly and is a tribute to the Odyssey by the Greek poet Homer.

Les Voyages d’Ulysse was printed by Graphius and commissioned by publisher Arts Graphiques – Daniel Maghen. The book measures 220 x 297 mm, has a total of 280 pages with a matt-laminated hardcover and rounded spine. Inside, pieces of tracing paper with extracts from the Odyssey have been bound. An additional section at the back contains drawings of, among others, scenes from the Iliad. Three months after the first edition, we are currently reprinting for the third time.
