From Goethe Institut:

What do a stolen bicycle, a shortsighted rabbit named Supa-Hasi and the singer Jonny Cash have in common?

Right – nothing!

But along with other numerous protagonists they form the very colorful and multifaceted exhibition “Comics, Manga & Co. – The New German Comics Culture”. The exhibition is part of a broader series of “Europe Days 2013” events.

The exhibition of 55 different comics will take place in the Goethe-Institute Hanoi from 8th May – 2nd June 2013. It presents two generations of artists, which have been influencing the German comic culture in many different ways.

You will discover detailed and scientific drawings of Jens Harder in Alpha, which shows the evolutionary history from the Big Bang to the first humans, or the exciting film-like drawn graphic novels by Reinhard Kaiser or the girl manga by Christina Plaka – the comic book world knows (almost) no bounds!

13 artists were selected for this exhibition, whose versatile works present all important German tendencies.
