THE COMIC BOOK PROJECT LAUNCHES NEW ISSUES AT COMIC CON 2017
THREE NEW ISSUES
Write CY will be at Cyprus Comic Con 2017 with three new locally produced comic books from the Comic Book Project, plus reprints of our first three issues.
ISSUE 4: STEEL PUNCH
Issue 4 is the long-awaited Steel Punch, written by Electra Michaelidou and illustrated by Nicos Nipat and Ioanna Epaminondou, with a cover by Aniro. Steel Punch is the story of Dana Weiss, a one-time heavy metal guitarist who finds herself back at the bar she used to play at to deal with some long-buried ghosts.
ISSUE 5: UN SOGNO
Issue 5, Un Sogno, will feature a story by cognitive psychologist Marianna Pagkratidou and artwork by 13-year-old artist Eleana Vasiliades.
THE 48-HOUR COMIC BOOK
Also look forward to the completely unique, completely insane 48-Hour Comic Book. Part pulp conspiracy, part B-movie adventure, the 48-Hour Comic Book was the warped brainchild of Write CY comic book writing instructor Antonis Bargilly, a lifelong believer in the impossible.
Post-production was a bit slower, but the story itself, and the bulk of the artwork, was hatched and executed at Cyprus Comic Con 2016 in the basement of Filoxenia Conference Center by 15 enthusiastic writers and artists, both amateur and professional, who responded to our open call.
The 48-Hour Comic Book is part of the Comic Book Project, an ongoing collaboration between Write CY and the community to produce quality local comic books.
