The group, known as ACBD, said the figures show France experienced its 17th year of growth for the comic book industry and had more comics produced in its market than in the United States, Radio France Internationale reported Friday.

Didier Pasamonik, the editor in chief of the comics news website Actua BD, said 2012 was marked by a high quantity of high quality comics released in France.

"It's a sign of (a) good answer to the market because each book is targeted to a special audience. You have (comics for) girls, for people who like very artistic books, all kinds of comics exist on the market. That's why, year after year, the production is in augmentation," he said.

"At the comics convention in San Diego, there is more and more French books in competition, and translations of French comics are more and more important in the world, and with big success."
