Aya HC

AYA HC - Full-Color Creators: By Marguerite Abouet & Clément Oubrerie Description: Winner of the 2006 award for Best New Album at the Angoulême International Comics Festival, Aya tells the story of its 19-year old heroine, the studious and clear-sighted Aya, her easy-going friends Adjoua and Bintou, and their meddling relatives and neighbors. It’s a breezy and wryly funny account of the desire for joy and freedom, and of the simple pleasures and private troubles of everyday life in Yop City. An unpretentious and gently humorous story of an Africa we rarely see–spirited, hopeful and resilient. Clément Oubreri’s warm colors and energetic, playful line connect expressively with Marguerite Abouet’s vibrant writing. 112 pages. Size (6x9)
