OUR COMIC BOOKS
ISSUE 4 | STEEL PUNCH
WRITTEN BY ELECTRA MICHAELIDOU
ILLUSTRATED BY NICOS NIPAT, IOANNA EPAMINONDOU & ANIRO
Dana Weiss, ex-lead guitarist of the heavy metal band Steel Punch, finds herself revisiting the bar where she and her band gave their last performance. An unexpected encounter there helps her find the strength and comfort to confront the ghosts of her past.
ISSUE 5 | UN SOGNO
WRITTEN BY MARIANNA PAGKRATIDOU
ILLUSTRATED BY ELEANA VASILIADES
Three academics and a black cat are enjoying a quiet Saturday night when an accident changes their lives forever.
ISSUE 6 | THE 48-HOUR COMIC BOOK
Part pulp conspiracy romp, part B-movie adventure, the 48-Hour Comic Book was an experiment in collaborative comic book writing where we gave 15 writers and artists from a bunch of different backgrounds and disciplines a basic outline, some paper, pencils, ink and watercolors, and then asked them to produce a comic book in 48 hours in the basement of Filoxenia Conference Center at Cyprus Comic Con 2016. Insane? You bet. Check out the results at booth #53.
