I was recently in Paris at the Jardin des Plantes, the city’s botanical gardens. The garden, originally dedicated to medicinal plants, dates back to the 17th century and was successively enlarged and expanded in its purpose. Among other things, today there is located the city’s Museum of Natural History (together with beautiful old greenhouses), with its own building for the paleontology collection and an impressive skeleton display of extinct but also living animal species. I’ve never seen so many neatly arranged bones exhibited on one spot! My host, the French illustrator Anna Lubinski, pointed out to me that the bone collection is visited by many students of the visual arts
Last weekend I was in Basel to promote my new graphic novel adaptation of 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA at the Comixshop Basel booth (at the “Fantasy Basel” fair). Tomorrow is the first sale day of this ‘sequel’ to my WAR OF THE WORLDS adaption, and we already had copies

A a new reading concert of my graphic novel 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA (Carlsen Comics) is coming up! On Monday, July 3rd, at 5:30 p.m., the musician Jörg Walter and I will be giving a musical reading at the very 1st edition of the Pfälzer Comicsalon!
At this event, we’ll take you on a fantastic underwater ‘world tour’ based on my adaption of Jules Vernes beloved classic: while the images from the graphic novel are playing before your eyes, I will read excerpts from the comic to live music improvisations by Jörg and we’ll let the adventures of Captain Nemo and his passengers come alive for you! Afterwards I give a small report (with pictures) about how I worked on the graphic novel, by that giving insights into the work of a comic book artist, and will be happy to sign your book :). There will be a book table, too, where you can get your copy of the graphic novel!
So off to Gönnheim! There’s a wine fest, too, at that time… ;).
