Les Rencontres Internationales de Cerfs-Volants de Berck-sur-Mer

Site officiel des Rencontres Internationales de Cerfs-Volants de Berck-sur-Mer


Aujourd’ricvhui, les Rencontres Internationales de Cerfs-Volants de Berck-sur-Mer (R.I.C.V.) sont devenues l’un des plus gros rassemblements au monde et un des événements majeurs de la Côte d’Opale et de la Région Nord - Pas de Calais. Ces rencontres attirent à Berck-sur-Mer plusieurs centaines de milliers de visiteurs et suscitent des centaines d’articles et de reportages dans la presse écrite et audiovisuelle régionale, nationale et internationale. La convivialité qui règne sur l’événement en a fait l’un des festivals de cerf-volant les plus prisés par les grands spécialistes qui apprécient l’ambiance « bon enfant » et l’accueil qui leur est réservé. Il est le théâtre tous les deux ans des championnats du monde de cerf-volant en ligne par équipe (cervoling), qui attirent les meilleures équipes de nombreux pays.
L’immense plage de sable fin de Berck-sur-Mer a toujours attiré les amateurs de sports liés au vent et plus particulièrement le char à voile et le cerf-volant. C’est sur cette plage, en 1907, que Louis BLERIOT a organisé la première compétition internationale d’aéroplages, l’ancêtre du char à voile. C’est à Berck-sur-Mer, au début du XXe siècle que l’une des premières photos aériennes par cerf-volant a été prise.
C’est encore sur la plage de Berck-sur-Mer que les pionniers de l’aviation tels que les frères CAUDRON ou Gabriel VOISIN ont réalisé, au début du 20ème siècle, leurs premiers essais. C’est donc tout naturellement que les membres d’un club de cerfs-volistes belges, le KAPWA, spécialisés dans la photographie, avaient l’habitude de se retrouver sur notre plage chaque année au printemps.
En 1987, ceux-ci s’adressèrent à Claude WILQUIN, alors Maire de la ville, lui demandant
 l’autorisation d’organiser une fête du cerf-volant afin de célébrer le centenaire de la photographie aérienne ; les premières Rencontres Internationales de Cerfs-Volants de Berck-sur-Mer étaient nées.

Akaneiro: Demon Hunters


Dark Horse Teams With American McGee's Spicy Horse Studios To Bring The ARPG Akaneiro To Comics

Following up on last week’s Kickstarter launch of Spicy Horse’s upcoming ARPG, Akaneiro: Demon Hunters, Spicy Horse Studios and Dark Horse Comics announce that this soon-to-be-released game will be expanding into comics!

From the brilliant minds behind video game auteur American McGee’s Spicy Horse Studios, Akaneiro mixes a foundation of Japanese folklore with an original mythology inspired by Red Riding Hood, yielding a fantastic and exciting setting for players to explore and perfectly setting the stage for the visual storytelling of comics. Written by Justin Aclin (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) and illustrated by Vasilis Lolos (Conan the Barbarian), the comics follow Kania young woman torn between two cultureson an epic adventure hunting devious Yokai and pursuing a destiny far greater than even she can perceive as a member of the fabled Order of Akane.

Known for his bold artistic vision and high-concept reimaginations of well-known characters, American McGee builds on the success of American McGee’s Alice, its sequel, Alice: Madness Returns, and the episodic game American McGee’s Grimm. This reinterpretation of Red Riding Hood as a monster hunter in a mythological Japan is sure to excite fans and game critics alike.

“Though I hate being categorized as some sort of auteur, I’m thrilled to be working again with the rocket-scientist sex machines at Dark Horse,” said Spicy Horse Studio head American McGee. “Our previous collaborations with Dark Horse have produced stunning results, like the art book for Alice: Madness Returns. It’s a perfect marriage of art and execution.”

An original story expanding the universe of Akaneiro, featuring covers by the Spicy Horse artists creating the game, this three-issue comics series debuts on May 22!
