Nimble rodents and burning scrolls

Ein Feuer schreibt Geschichte


After the wedding ceremony of Michael and Katharina the Abrafaxe begin to forge travel plans. But Martin Luther's confrontations with the Pope are still far from completion. The professor receives the papal bull, which bans him from the church. What Luther makes of that, why Brabax is angry at Professor Melanchthon, whether the Abrafaxe really move on, and what our beloved rat does in the meantime, you will learn in MOSAIK 501.

Throwback Thursday: Hidden Writings

Sometimes you wonder what can be discovered as soon as you get a little bit further into our archives.
During the digitization of MOSAIK anthology 11 (MOSAIK 4 to 8 of 1979), we suddenly noticed that there was nothing but empty signs, which in the past indeed contained texts, and we suddenly found letterings on the original pages, which were never before published.

This is how all of us know the backside of MOSAIK 8/79 so far:

And this lettering is hidden under a generous covering of white paint, which can be seen in the backlight.
Out of sheer curiosity we did a little bit of research: "Zupan" is Slovenian and means "mayor".

Directly underneath that is a pencil-writing, which can be deciphered as "Schweinezüchter" (="pig-breeder") , as well as the two inscriptions "Hilfs-Gefängnis-Wagen" (="Hilfs-Prison-Wagon") and "Kaiserliche Gendarmerie" (="Imperial Constabulary").<br /><br /><img src="" width="600" height="450" />

This probably means a little more reconstruction work for our media designers ...

Klein, drollig und voller Charme [...] Mosaik ist ein Stück Leben.

Mitteldeutsche Zeitung

Angesichts der Omnipräsenz der elektronischen Medien in Kinderzimmern ist die Comiczeitschrift „MOSAIK“ ein liebenswerter Anachronismus. Und ein erfolgreicher dazu.“

Zeichnerisch weiterhin auf höchstem Niveau, ist das Heft ein gelungener Start für die Serie.
