Description

It's one thing to publish books, but comics publication is a whole different matter. Let's take reference from Casterman, a leading comics publisher in Europe, and gain some insight into their success story in publishing over 100 comics every year. Founded in 1780, Casterman entered into the field of comics publishing by debuting the world renowned The Adventures of Tintin in 1929 . Over the years, Casterman worked with many comics authors of various drawing styles and is widely supported by comics fans. Its sub-brand, Jeunesse, targets teenage readers, popularizing works such as illustration Martine, which has been translated into more than 33 different languages. In French-speaking regions all over the world, one in every seven comic books published would be by Casterman. Don't miss this special opportunity to hear Sally Mak, Casterman's Greater China Exclusive Agent , share the success stories of this much loved comics publisher. She will talk about how the company became the biggest publisher in Europe through quality control and applying an author-oriented publishing strategy. Manifesting the global vision of the company, she will cover the previous collaborations between Casterman and Asian comics artists from places such as Hong Kong, the Mainland, and Japan, while exploring possibilities of future collaborations with comics artists in Hong Kong.

Sally Mak is a media specialist graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Since 2003, Mak has been the French publishing group Casterman's Exclusive Agent in Greater China, overseeing the company's comics and children books' publication and copyright in the region.

個個都出版漫畫,但唔通個個都識出版漫畫咩!不如向全歐洲最大型漫畫出版商之一嘅Casterman取下經,睇下佢地點解可以「密密keep住出」,每年出版至少100本漫畫!Casterman成立於1780年,1929年憑着出版知名漫畫《丁丁歷險記》而擠身漫畫界,至今一直獲不少作者和漫畫迷支持及追捧,同時亦不斷求變,包括與不同風格的作者合作,以及開發旗下專為青少年而設的品牌Casterman Jeunesse,出版已被翻譯成超過33種語言的著名繪本《Martine》及其他作品。事實上在全球的法語區,每七本出版的漫畫當中就有一本是Casterman的出品!《PLAY!》今次請來Casterman大中華地區的獨家代理人麥小燕,向香港讀者介紹Casterman的發展史,細說他們如何透過堅持優質和以作者為本的出版策略,逐步成為歐洲最大型的出版商,並分享他們曾出版的經典漫畫作品。除此之外,她更會介紹Casterman以往與香港、中國內地、日本等地的亞洲漫畫家的合作計劃,藉此探討日後與本地漫畫家合作的可能性,以展現歐洲「漫畫大臺」的國際視野!

講者麥小燕( 法文出版社 Casterman 大中華區獨家代理)於香港中文大學畢業後從事傳媒工作。2003 年起擔任法文出版社 Casterman 大中華區獨家代理, 現負責區內漫畫及少兒書的版權工作。
