Continuing on the Spanish theme, this is the website of a really excellent Spanish cartoonist, Esteban Hernández, and the fanzine he publishes, Usted (You). I say fanzine, but it's really polished and features some of the brightest and best in Spain, like Albert Monteys, Ed and Miguel B. Nuñez. I'm really looking forward to getting hold of a copy of this.
In the meantime, have a look at his work. It's gorgeous.
I love Carlos Giménez, and this is a 'tour' he created for the late magazine 1984. Beautiful stuff. The panel above shows his caricature of the late publisher and comics agent Josep Toutain.
If there were any justice in the world, his 'Los Profesionales' series would have been translated into English years ago.
BD à Bastia 2011: l’expo « Planches en vrac ou à la découpe » d’Etienne Lécroart | BoDoï, explorateur de bandes dessinées - Infos BD, comics, mangas
Adepte de l’expérimentation graphique et membre de l’OuBaPo (Ouvroir de Bande Dessinée Potentielle), Etienne Lécroart (Bande de sonnets, Les Caïds de la gaudriole, Le Cycle) présente à Bastia ses « Planches en vrac ou à la découpe ».
Everybody who knows me knows of my undying love for experiments with the comics form, and especially the work of the OuBaPo, the workshop for the potential of comics. One of its members is the extraordinary Etienne Lécroart, and this piece from BoDoï features the exhibition of his "Planches en vrac ou à la découpe". Click through, and look in wonder at these wonderful comics painted on wood and cut to create sliding puzzles and more. Truly interactive comics...
