Jibé’s free, funny 2019 Lakes International Comic Art Festival journal published

The Lakes International Comic Art Festival has just published a wonderful Festival Journal by Jean-Baptiste Pollien, a.k.a. Jibé on their official site, celebrating last year’s weekend-long event in Kendal.

Free to download, Jibé recounts his experience of visiting the Festival with other European guests, and it’s quite clear that, like attendees, this talented comic creator enjoyed his time in the Lake District last year!
