About the artists:
Clément Baloup (born in 1978) entered the School of Fine Arts in Angoulême in 1997 and joined the comics section. These five years in Charente enrich both his perception and his practice of comics. In 2000, he and his roommates "The House That Stinks", a collective touch-to-everything that allows him to publish his first boards. An eclecticism that Clément Baloup has preserved since, besides his intimate work (An Autumn in Hanoi and Quit Saigon), this young author from Marseille has also realized the scenarios of works more directed to the adventure: The Life in Red for Domas (2 volumes published in The Bubble Box) and the very noticeable Chinh Tri (2 volumes published at Seuil) and Diables Sucrés for Mathieu Jiro (Gallimard - Angoulême selection 2010). With Mémoires de Viet Kieu T1, Quit Saigon (published and then reissued in augmented version in La Boîte à bulles), he won his first major prize: the Ecumenical Jury Prize for Comics, on the occasion of the Festival de Angoulême 2011.
