Hermann Will Accept The Angoulême Grand Prix If Offered To Him

Recently, we reported that none of the three nominees were likely to accept this year's Grand Prix from the Angoulême festival, after considerable controversy and change over the nominees.

Both Alan Moore and Hermann had previously said they would refuse the award and new nominee Claire Wendling asked her fans not to vote for her.

However, ACBD reports that Hermann has now told people that if it were offered to him, he would accept to please his friend, the academic François Boucq at his repeated insistence that he take it.

Right now, he is by far the favourite. Though with a reputation as a misanthrope and unpopularity in the comics industry as a result, it may only be a grudging acceptance….
