Hardcomics 11 – “The year of the pioneer” by Andreea Chirica. The first graphic novel from Andreea Chirica will be launched on the 30th of September (starting from 7PM) in a setting as bygone as the universe that populates the book. Casa Universitarilor (Dionisie Lupu 46) is a place that has remained unchanged for the last 3 decades: food, ambience and service wise. “The year of the pioneer” – as the original title goes, in English – is a book about one full school year of 7 year old girl in 1986. The book, aside from some untranslatable nouns in Romanian is entirely texted in English. It is a black and white half biographical comic strip, half painted documentary, featuring the key elements of every childhood that took place in the 80s. The part that is not shared, a distinct biographical element, is discretely handled and the reader can focus entirely on the self-ironic and humorous part that makes the reading enjoyable for both the ones who lived through that decade and the ones who know little about it.

Bonjour, Jolie matin, le joyeux fleur de notre jardin. Anul ăsta, mulțumită încălzirii
globale, am sărit peste iarna. direct în primavară. Iata-ne deci, foarte
excitați și gata să ne dedăm la perversiuni cu gândul la noul nostru
Hardcomics. Ne-am gandit așadar să facem un număr mai picant. Tema Hardcomics
7 este: "prima oară cand ai facut sex". Nu am bătut-o in cuie dar cam asta e zona de interes pentru noua noastra compliație.
Formatul și restricțiile sunt ca și până acum: A4, alb/negru, rezoluție
mică pentru început (vă contactăm noi pentru varianta hi-res), DEADLINE
Baieții si fetele de la Hardcomics
succesul coplesitor, faima, si interesul corporativ urias pe care
le-am obtinut cu Hardcomics 6, suntem mandri sa va prezentam…Hardcomics
5. Da, ati auzit bine!Noul numar din Hardcomics difera putin de stilul
cu care v-am obisnuit pana acum, relevand o latura mai “usoara” a
benzii desenate. Misiunea noastra a fost intotdeauna aceea de a promova
autori romani de banda desenata, iar in Irina Dobrescu am gasit candidata
perfecta. Cartea ei, “Blestemul cartii”, este o adaptare
a scurtei povestiri politiste a lui G.K. Chesterton si este printata
full colour, pentru satisfactia deplina a ochilor dumneavoastra.
Lansarea va avea loc la libraria Carturesti (Strada Arthur Verona
nr. 13, Bucuresti),
miercuri, 26 septembrie, la ora 18.00.
After the astounding success, fame, and
huge corporation interest we got with Hardcomics 6, we are proud to
present...Hardcomics 5! You heard
right, the new
issue of Hardcomics differs a bit from our usual style, showing another 'easier'
side of comics. Our mission has always been to promote Romanian comic book artists,
and in Irina Dobrescu we found the perfect candidate. Her book "Blestemul
Cartii" is an adaptation of a short detective story by G.K. Chesterton,
and is printed in full colour for all your viewing pleasure. The launching event
will take place in Carturesti bookshop on Wednesday 27th of September at 6 o'clock.
