Two great announcements in my inbox:
First, from Tommi Musturi, the birth of Glömp X. One whole kilo of comics, the 10-year anniversary edition of the Finnish anthology features a tribute to 3-D comics, and– wait for it– a touring exhibition through galleries across Europe.
First exhibition: Bologna, Italy, with 12 different sites throughout Europe through 2010. Now that’s a book! (And click the picture for more previews)
Second, from Warren Craghead, a gallery show he and Pedro Moura have co-curated:
International cast: Frédéric Coché, Ae-Rim Lee, André Lemos, Ilan Manouach, Andrei Molotiu and Fåbio Zimbres. It’s at the Second Street Gallery, a nonprofit in Charlottesville, Virginia. Moura has a book at the printer’s as we speak, which is just how an exhibit should be.
More on the new Glömp when I see it, and how I wish I were off to Virginia for the gallery show. That show runs March 6 to April 25, 2009; Glömp X is a hardcover edition of 1000. Blink and you’ll weep.
