Thanks to the Institutions which met in Angoulême from 20 to 22 novembre 1998 at the First International Convention of Cartoon and Comics Museums (click to see the photos), a project may start to unite them all in a bigger Institution to promote the understanding and appreciation of cartoon art.
All news, received from these Institutions, are published on afNEWS (www.fumetti.org/afnews - afnews@fumetti.org), daily news about the comics-world.
We warmly invite you to join the afNews newsletter (see instructions at www.fumetti.org/foryou.htm) and to send us all your news to share them with all other people!
