COMIC fans aged 15 and over had a chance to share their passion with others at a comic club at Arroyo de la Miel’s library yesterday.
The scheme, which is coordinated by the Youth Delegation of Benalmadena Council and Jose Ramon Martinez Berategui, met for the second ever time and aims to allow young people to analyse different styles of graphic novels over its forthcoming sessions. On this occasion, comic book fans discussed “El invierno del dibujante” by Paco Roca, who won the 2008 National Comic Award.
The comic, which is set under the dictatorship of Franco, and has as its main characters authors who leave their publishing house to start their own magazine. Their life becomes a metaphor for the dictator’s regime.
The director of the Library, Maria del Carmen Martin Lara, has encouraged the town’s young people to “use this as a leisure space to share their thoughts and interests, in this case in comics.”
The new club will be suspended over the summer months and resume in October. The workshop is free and places are limited. Those interested in registering can do so at the Innova building in the Youth office or on 952 57 60 23 or www.areajuventudbenalmadena.es.
