The Vertigo blog has some news and art this am, a new blurb for AARON & AHMED, the GN by Jay Cantor and James Romberger. Also news of MARZI by Marzena Sowa and Sylvain Savoia, sort of a Polish PERSEPOLIS about a young girl growing up in ’80s Poland. Interestingly, this is NOT an original GN but a translation of the original, which was published in France, a bit of a change for the imprint. (That’s the Spanish version above.)
There’s also a piece of art from Jill Thompson’s DELIRIUM’S PARTY: A LITTLE ENDLESS STORYBOOK, which is about kiddie versions of Neil Gaiman’s pantheon trying to cheer up Despair with a party. Good luck with that, kids — she’s named DESPAIR.
BTW, when we were looking for the original MARZI cover we found this Spanish language roundup of recent-ish non-fiction and autobio comics …a lot of great stuff on that page.
