I’m in Paris

…visiting my sister, but on the lookout, of course, for animation and comics-related stuff. We spent some time in the comic-book store district today (yes, Paris has a comic-book store district–it’s near Notre Dame). The stores were rife with products such as statuettes of Tex Avery characters and of Hot Stuff (many, many statuettes of Hot Stuff), but they seemed for the most part to be the same items I saw when I was here in 2003.

On the other hand, I happened across a DVD box set of Betty Boop cartoons (in English, with French subtitles). It seems to be based on the VHS box of the late 1990s, but it’ll be good to have it on disc, and it comes with an audio DVD of Boop music. What a good idea.

More news to come, I’m sure…
