Yey! Big book of Polish female comics artists.

“Polski komiks kobiecy” (Polish female comics), publisher: Timof i cisi wspólnicy”, 2012. Cover design: Ewa Juszczuk

Well, here it is: the anthology of Polish female comics artists, with a monograph written by Kinga Kuczyńska. This girl made a huge effort to gather and analyze the history and characteristics of comics created by female authors in Poland – in a second half of XX century and the years after (till today). The monograph is illustrated by a set of short stories, including mine: “Safe place“. I’m proud and happy to be a part of this project. Hats off to the publisher: Timof  i cisi wspólnicy. ISBN: 978-83-61081-69-2.

Each short story starts with a note about the author and a short bio. On the left page: awesome illustration by Ewa Juszczuk,

Here is how my story starts…

and goes on…

and on…

and on…(actually it’s one of the longest in a book)
