Andere Bücher braucht das Land

Andere Bücher braucht das Land

Wir waren mal wieder unterwegs: Dieses Mal in München und zwar vom 22. bis 24. November. Das Literaturhaus München hatte zum Markt der unabhängigen Verlage geladen. Es gab nicht nur einen Rotopolpress Stand, sondern auch eine Ausstellung mit einer Auswahl an Arbeiten aus unserer Super Villain - und Ultimate Disaster Show.

There was work by: Rita Fürstenau, Thomas Wellmann, Ugo Gattoni, Lisa Röper, Melanie Climent, Maike Plenzke, Guy Vallez, Michael Meier, Jesse Jacobs, Mikkel Sommer, Anton van Hertbruggen, Markus Färber, Lea Heinrich and Isabel Seliger.

Angoulême 2013 in Pictures

We survived the 40th International Festival de la Bande Dessinée in Agoulême and we’ve been stunned again how many great comics the French unload every year. It was very noticable that more an more non-French indie publishers and art collectives got a space at the Espace BD Alternative. We hope that this progress will be supported by festival’s officials. You could see that other European non-Francophonic publishing houses have more and more interest in presenting themselves in Angoulême. Because the French audience welcomes these publishing houses with open arms. We’re looking forward to next year’s festival.
