New comics magazine: Stripshow

Hond se gedagtes Posted by Hello
*Stripshow* is a new, all female comics publication that came into being at the end of last year.

Seven female comic artists from around the country contributed to this ride into the psyche of the woman. The editors are Leonora van Staden and Nicolene Louw, both currently Masters students at the University of Stellenbosch and students of Anton Kannemeyer.

The magazine was launched in Darling at Evita se perron and Pieter Dirk Uys opened the event. Some of the original works formed part of an exhibition of satirical works by students and lecturers from the fine arts Department at the University of Stellenbosch.

Stripshow notably contains contributions by Paddy Bouma, Karlien de Villiers and Leonora who have all previously published in Bitterkomix. The asset that everybody is the most proud of is the foreword written by Antjie Krog. Stripshow is a self published effort and is available at selected (South African) bookstores for R29,50.
