One more update on the awards for La Bombe front. We’ve now been honoured with an eighth awards.
Quite recently, La Bombe was awarded the Prix Albéric-Bourgeois – Bédéïs-Causa 2021 from le Festival BD Québec as well as the grand prize Prix Galons de la BD awarded by the Ministry the the French Armies. Now it’s the Bookstore Award 2021. Needless to say that this award is really special to us as bookstores remain our strongest partners.
All of this is in addition to the Prix de la critique ACBD de la BD québécoise 2020 from the ACBD, (the Comic Book Critics and Reporters Association l’Association), the Prix Cases D’Histoire for the best historical graphic novel of 2020, the Prix BDGest’Arts 2020 in the One-Shot / Single Issue by BDGest.com, the Prix Sceneario 2020 awarded by the sceneario.com website and last, but no least the Prix BD de l’année Carrefour 2020.
Let’s see where we’re at at this point. In no particular order, La Bombe was nominated for those awards (so far) :
Prix des Libraires du Québec 2021 awarded by L’Association des libraires du Québec (ALQ)
Prix Rossel de la Bande Dessinée awarded by the Le Soir newspaper
Grand Prix de la critique ACBD 2021 awarded by the Association des journalistes et Critiques de Bande Dessinée (ACBD)

Prix Quai des Bulles / Ouest France 2020 awarded by the Quai des Bulles Festival
Who knows if more will be added to the list. Needless to say we’re still somewhat stunned by the awesome reception La Bombe has received. We can only be humbled and thankful.
