Comicfestival München 2013

Starting tomorrow, I'll be at the Munich Comicfestival, having a great time and signing comics at the JAZAM! booth (AR33). Among the comics I'll be signing is the new volume of JAZAM!, for which I've contributed an illustration and done all of the editorial design, as usual. Here's our beautiful cover by Maike Plenzke:



Also at the JAZAM! booth, I'll be selling and signing "48 Stunden Angst," my new mini book containing both of my 24h comics. While you can already read one of them, Infiltrated, online in its entirety, the other one is all-new. Here are the first two pages:


If you're in Munich for the festival, you should also check out the A Tribute to Robert Crumb exhibition, which includes an illustration of mine.

Oh, and on thursday at 3:00 pm, I'll be part of a panel discussion about independent comics publishers at Altes Rathaus.

I hope to see you there! But if you can't make it to Munich this weekend, you can order both of the books at Kwimbi Webcomic Shop: order JAZAM! vol. 8 and order 48 Stunden Angst (both will be signed by me)

JAZAM! vol. 8 is also available at our own shop: JAZAM! shop

HIPSTERS in Hell, pts. 1 & 2

The new Hipsters storyline has started! And it’s not a “Hipsters Vs. …” thing, either. I have a feeling this is gonna be my most ambitious storyline yet. It also might be the last one. There are only so many hipster jokes you can make, after all… But don’t worry, I’m sure I’ll be able to drag this out for a year or so.

Here are the first two installments:


German version of pt. 1 & German version of pt. 2

A Tribute to Robert Crumb

Alright... after teasing you for weeks, I'm finally going to show you my full illustration for "A Tribute to Robert Crumb," as it appears at the exhibition at Amerika Haus München and in the Edition 52 book that has just come out. Click on the cover (by none other than Charles freakin' Burns!) to buy the book at Amazon.de:


The book (& exhibition) contains a ton of amazing artwork and comix by some international stars and some of the finest German cartoonists. And little old me. So, without further ado, here's my contribution:

A Tribute to Robert Crumb - the exhibition

Starting tonight, you can see my Robert Crumb tribute illustration at Amerika Haus München. The vernissage will be tonight at 8pm (I've heard there's free wine!) and the exhibition will stay open for the next couple of weeks, all the way through Comicfestival München. Here's what my illustration looks like on the wall:

Pixel Hipsters (Comic Collab #20)

After wanting to do so for months, I finally managed to participate in one of Schlogger's so-called "Comic Collabs." It's basically a fixed date at which lots of German comic bloggers upload comics (& stuff) with a common topic. This month's topic is "pixel," and while I didn't have time to do a comic, I made these pixel versions of my Hipsters characters:


Here are some of the other participants:

48 Stunden Angst

While I contributed "only" illustrations and no comics to JAZAM! vol. 8 and A Tribute to Robert Crumb, you'll still be able to buy some new comics by me at Comicfestival München later this month. Over the last few days, I've prepared "48 Stunden Angst" (48 Hours of Fear), a small comic book containing both of the 24h comics I've drawn in the past year. Whereas you can already read "Infiltrated" online, this will be the only way to read last month's "Anni, die kleine Kannibalin" (Annie, the Little Cannibal) for now. I'll show some pages from it on the blog soon, but for now, here's the cover of the mini book:
