Comic book author Birgit Vaye: It’s Paradise Cold

Birgit Vaye combines avant-garde comics with the African language of forms. In Madgermanes [“Majermans”], she captured the story of the Mozambican workers in the GDR.

And around Carol Danvers, the main character of the comic book Captain Marvel (Captain Marvel) – who, while DeKonnick was working on her, contributed to the appearance of a huge number of works about superheroes where women are not “humiliated”, – the author speaks of them, – There was a whole fan base, “Carol Corps”. These fans made so much noise and became so noticeable that the comic strip Continue reading
