More awards for La Bombe. On top of the Prix BD de l’année Carrefour 2020, the book has now gathered no less than four more including the coveted ACBD Award.
Indeed, La Bombe received the Prix de la critique ACBD de la BD québécoise 2020 from the ACBD, (the Comic Book Critics and Reporters Association l’Association). It also won the Prix Cases D’Histoire for the best historical graphic novel of 2020 and was chose by the readers for the Prix BDGest’Arts 2020 in the One-Shot / Single Issue by BDGest.com.
