hello there! id just like to say i rather enjoy looking through the things kus posts, i got my first copy a few years ago when i visited berlin, such a diverse and interesting set of work (though admittedly i cant read a lot of it but that doesnt matter) . i was wondering if you have a theme for each anthology / book beforehand or how you go about collecting work for it? anywho cheers for reading this, have a swell day! dale
Hi Dale! Thanks for your nice words! Looks like you picked up an old copy in Latvian? Meanwhile since 2009 all our books are in English, so you should be able to read them. In Renate and Neurotitan you can take a look at them (and buy if you like). Every issue has a special theme and we usually invite the artists directly, but sometimes we make open calls, so everyone else can participate. Just follow us here and on twitter, blogspot or facebook to get the latest news for open projects. We’ re always happy to discover new artists!
I am so happy to be in the next edition of Kush comics (get it here). I am one of the lucky winners of the open call they had up some time ago. This edition is called “Villages” and my story is about a little town called Cicmany. Check out their blog for a preview of the upcoming issue!
