Author, journalist, PhD, curator and professor – working with comics
More Chinese strangeness: the cover of one of the new Adamson books has an original illustration on the cover, obviously not drawn by Jacobsson. I like the city silhouette in the background, with the Eiffel tower and the Tower Bridge of London … An homage to the international success of the strip, or just shorthand for Europe?
