Back from the great, great Comic Salon in Erlangen and boy, what fun did we have. I’m still on cloud 9. Lots of interesting chats, very positive feedback to my story, and hundreds of charming people. It’s nearly impossible to review all the things that happenef, instead I’ll simply give you some pictures.
It makes total sense to me, that the whole of the German comic community is looking forward to this event excitedly, every time. But how on earth are we going to manage another two years of waiting?!
As we discussed during the festival: musicians are always raving about Live-concerts being the REAL thing. For us comic artists, bent in solitude and poorly lit studios over the drawing board most of the year, for us are the Comicfestivals our ‘Live’. We have to thank all the organisators, the helpers, the sponsors and everybody who is taking part, that the magic of Erlangen continues to happen.

Here are the photos.

Wie man schon auf dem Festival erörterte: Musiker schwärmen immer davon, dass am Ende die Live-Konzerte das sind, worauf es ankommt. Für Comiczeichner, die wir das ganze Jahr über in unserer dunklen Stube sitzen, sind die Comicfestivals unser ‘Live’. Man kann es den Organisatoren, Fördernden und allen Mitwirkenden nur danken, dass die Magie von Erlangen auch dieses Jahr wieder dieselbe war.
Anbei noch ein paar Fotos.
