Profile

Sometimes - and more often than preconceived notions would admit - comics deal with the here and now, with the political and social divisions of the world in which we live. Authors such as Manuele Fior, Birgit Weyhe, Simon Schwartz, Gipi, Liv Strömquist, David B., Zerocalcare and Joann Sfar accord avant-verlag an unmistakable profile.

This new generation of comic authors tells political, but also personal stories, develops innovative visual languages, and shows what comics are today: an exciting medium with literary quality. The avant-verlag has been publishing comics and graphic novels for lovers of modern graphics and art since 2001.
