Throwback Thursday: Scribble and Manuscript 9/88

Some things just do not change. Even in the first years of the Abrafaxe author Lothar Dräger developed a manuscript as well as a scribble:

The first 4 script-pages of the September-MOSAIK of 1988.

Scribble of the first 4 pages of the magazine.

Jens U. Schubert's work looks quite similarly today. Only that he no longer uses a typewriter but instead uses his computer for writing...

MOSAIK Anthology 93

In Venice they were looking forward to the Corso Grande, for the fastest ship was chosen every two years in a race around the city.
Abrax and Brabax were also taking part in it, but they did not want to win fame and the lucrative prize, but rather want to ask the doge for the release of Hugo and Califax, because the two were still in jail under false charges.
Whether they actually manage to help their two friends out of their precarious situation, you will learn in this anthology.

Of course there is also a comprehensive editorial appendix with the following topics:
  • Das Meer in der Mitte (=The Mediterranean Sea)
  • Die Mittelmeerwelt zu Beginn des 12. Jahrhunderts (=The Mediterranean World at the Beginning of the 12th Century)
  • Unter roter Flagge – Piraterie im Mittelmeer (=Under Red Flag – piracy in the Mediterranean Sea)
  • Ein Schurke, wie er im Buche steht (=A Villain, As They Are in the Books)
  • Mini-Jubiläum mit Aufklärung, Nachhaltigkeit und Fahrenheit 451 (=Mini-anniversary with education, sustainability and Fahrenheit 451)
  • Wer ist denn das? (=Who is This?)
  • Titel- und Figurinen-Entwürfe (=Cover Sketches and Model Sheets)
Happy reading and discovering!

Throwback Thursday: Elszbieta Ferrando

In the search for character sketches for our upcoming anthologies, we have accidentally stumbled upon, previously unpublished, sketches of the America series. The first sketch of Elszbieta Ferrando, the Abrafaxe's hostess, is what we're sharing with you today:

And how she subsequently appeared in the series:

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.
