It’s a triple win for women, women in comics and comics in general! RUMIKO TAKAHASHI takes the 2019 GRAND PRIX for lifetime achievement in comics!

To celebrate this tremendous honor, we’re giving you the FEMME MAGNIFIQUE: 50 Women Who Changed The World salute to Rumiko by Chynna Clugston Flores FOR FREE!

Chynna’s story and nine others will feature in FEMME MAGNIFIQUE: 10, a sampler of the aforementioned paperback, is out in March to celebrate Women’s History Month! 

We checked in with Chynna to get her reaction to Rumiko’s big win:

“I’m thrilled that Rumiko Takahashi won the Grand Prix d’Angoulême! It’s not her first rodeo in the award department by any means, but she more than deserves to be lauded in the west as the ruling comic book queen she is!”
