"Athens: the comic book"

 

ATA-thecomicbook

 

 

 

 

 

A collection of 16 stories inspired by Athens - the chaos, the beauty, the darkness, and hope.

 

Athens: the comic book

is a collection of short stories inspired by Athens - the chaos, the beauty, the darkness, diversity and hope found in this great city. We sent an open call for stories, gave freedom to participants to choose their theme, and received 16 fantastic, romantic, realistic, social, and above all true experiences.

That way, anyone who'd like to change something along the street, can say exactly what they'd like there to be. 

The Idea

We aim to publish the collection of stories directly into 2 languages, in Greek and English. We feel that this collection will touch Greeks and non-Greeks alike, those who want to see a different narrative of the city.

We hope that this publication will help promote new authors, and bring Greek comics further outwards into the world. That's why the collection includes both renowned artists as well as talented beginners taking their first steps.
