A weekend full of comic and music! Because we’ll be doing the comicbook concert of my graphic novel adaption of H.G. Wells’ THE WAR OF THE WORLDS two times successively on the 27th and 28th of April, in Berlin and Erfurt (Thuringia)!
Each concert consists of a presentation of the graphic novel that comes along with music that has been especially written by Jörg Walter for this event: While I am reading passages from the comic and the pictures are presented on a screen, he is playing music that accompanies the action. Imagine a silent movie presentation with music, that goes in the same direction!
In the second part of the evening I am presenting how I adapted the H.G. Wells book into a graphic novel and you can get a dedication – along with a little drawing, maybe :)? – in your copy of WAR OF THE WORLDS. At the event on the 27th the gorgeous comic shop MODERN GRAPHICS from Berlin will provide a book table where you can purchase the book, and on the following day in Erfurt the splendid comic shop PLANET COMICS will host a table. You can by it that night there or of course go to your local bookshop in advance and order it anytime, too :).
Now to the schedule of both events:
1. Saturday, April 27th, 2019, 6 pm
Dorfkirche Alt-Tegel (‘Kulturkirche am See’),
Alt-Tegel 37-39, 13507 Berlin
No entrance fee, but the venue is happy to receive a small donation!
2. Sunday, 28th of April, 2019, 4 pm
Comicpark Erfurt (on the ‘egapark’ lot),
Gothaer Straße 38, 99094 Erfurt (the so-called ‘Brühlervorstadt’)
I am soooo looking forward to this weekend! It will be impressively exhausting for the musician and me, I guess, but we should be well prepared! It is always a fun and dense experience to stage this event, so get ready for some classic sf thrills, aspects of romanticism, and some really good music… and my reading voice ;-).
Yours truly, Thilo
