Event description

Description

The start of a project is never easy, especially not when there is no precedent to follow. Born in Switzerland, David Schilter moved to Latvia in 2006, where he could not find a single comics shop or comics publishing house. All he could find was a few translated copies of The Adventures of Tintin. He then decided to change the comics scene in Latvia by establishing an independent comics art anthology, kuš!. kuš! publishes thematic works by comics artists from around the world, including Lai Tat Tat Wing, iconic Hong Kong indie comics artist, in the issue Pages to Pages. In the course of a decade, kuš! garnered many international awards, such as “The Alternative Comics Prize” in the Angoulême International Comics Festival 2012. More recently, it was nominated “Best On-going Series” for the Broken Frontier Awards 2017. David will share his ‘way of publishing' and his view on the current independent comics publishing scene in Europe. He will also share his criteria in selecting artists for collaboration, and introduce some of his favorite comics works to Hong Kong readers. He will also make an exclusive sharing on his experience in working with Hong Kong comics artists, his views on the Hong Kong comics industry, and his future plans with kuš!.

萬事起頭難,更何況「本來無一物」?瑞士出生的David Schilter於2006年移居拉脫維亞,那時當地連一家漫畫店或漫畫出版商都沒有,只能找到零星的《丁丁歷險記》翻譯本;於是他決定小試牛刀,創立獨立漫畫合輯《kuš!》,以一己之力於拉脫維亞創建獨立漫畫出版的清泉,更根據每期的主題,從世界各地搜羅不同漫畫家的作品–結集出版。《kuš!》亦曾與香港indie漫畫大師黎達達榮合作,出版漫畫《Pages to Pages》。十年來,《kuš!》獲得不少國際漫畫獎項,包括在2012年法國安古蘭國際漫畫節中獲「最佳另類漫畫獎」,及於2017年被提名為Broken Frontier Awards的「最佳連續系列作品」。今次David特地來港,向本地讀者講解他的「出版之道」,概述現今歐洲獨立出版的景況,更會分享他挑選合作漫畫家的準則,和向香港讀者介紹他的一些漫畫「心頭好」。他亦會分享以往與香港漫畫家合作的經驗、對香港漫畫的看法,以及未來與香港漫畫家合作的展望。十年「無中生有」的獨立漫畫出版傳奇,David將在這個一小時的講座中向你娓娓道來!
