It's always a blast working in the tabloid format, making big delicious A3 pictures (who are a pain to scan, by the way). It was great doing this large page for the excellent comics page of the german edition of Le monde diplomatique. This one, and the other ones (great artists like Emelie östergren and Marc Bell) will be published in a book by reprodukt, being released this saturday! Here's the details:
“Le Monde diplomatique: In 50 Comics um die Welt” at the Night of Books in Berlin.
In 2010 the German edition of “Le Monde diplomatique” celebrates its 15th anniversary with the release of large-sized book “Le Monde diplomatique: In 50 Comics um die Welt“. It presents a selection of the best comic-pages which have been published in the international monthly newspaper since 2005.
Editor Karoline Bofinger is going to present drawings from “In 50 Comics um die Welt”. Impressions about this (hot of the presses!) volume will be shared in a conversation with Armin Abmeier, Henning Wagenbreth and Katia Fouquet.
Being a bit travelled out at the moment (3 comics festivals in a month! Phew!) i will regretfully not be there. (even though i would love some more time in Berlin) But anyone in the neighborhood this saturday are most welcome.
