The Cité du Livre of Aix-en-Provence in France is planning its major exhibition of comic book artwork for the year, their eleventh to date. And they have chosen Englishman Alan Moore, the first time they have celebrated a comics writer over an artist or writer/artist.

Concentrating on prints and original artwork of his comics, including Eddie Campbell, David Lloyd, Melinda Gebbie, Kevin O'Neill, Dave Gibbons and more, as well as scripts, research notes and cuttings, acquired and curated by Jean-Marie Derscheid with the help of man-at-the-crossroads Paul Gravett.

The exhibition will run at the Cité du Livre at the Zola Gallery from April 1st to May 10th. Entry is free.

Anyone fancy popping along? It might get even more attention if indeed Moore wins the Grand Prix at Angoulême, against the odds…
