Ready to Join?

Join for part or all of the evening. All is good!
Lets take a fun tour of a unique area in St Germain, with fabulous shops where we can find new and rare editions of the fantastic art of comics - with a focus on Japanese Manga - all the rage these days among serious comics fans.

First we will learn how to make our own games in a cool workshop. Then we pass by some great shops selling superhero figurines. Following that, we break to share a cheap and delicious meal at a nearby cafe with the InterNations Travel Group.

Then we move on to the highlight of the evening, a talk by the managers of Aaapoum Bapoum. Jacques Defaye is very well informed on the history of comics and can take us through Japanese Manga and other global genres. Supporting him, will be other charming managers of the Aaapoum Bapoum shop, talking about France's long history of comics (Tin Tin, Asterix, etc.) and giving us a tour through the shop.
