As ussualy you can look forward to lectures, presentations, workshops, illustrators, publishers and exhibitions. New to our programme are entries from the FRAME Studio, the December exterior exhibition and FRAMEstagram competition.

On the waves of the internet – from Sunday all year round.

The Return of the King of Šumava

Presentation of the latest episode of the comic book trilogy The Return of the King of Šumava and Debate with its Authors, LABYRINT

Writers Ondřej Kavalír and Vojtěch Mašek, along with illustrator Karel Osoha, will present the finale volume of their comics trilogy. It’s a few years after the war, and Šumava resembles the Wild West, no-man’s-land, an El Dorado of adventurers, secret agents, smugglers and traffickers. Like a magnet, it attracts dramatic fates. But one is above all. The story of American agent and former border agent Josef Hasil.

Bez Vlasů

Presentation of new comics Bez Vlasů by Tereza Drahoňovská, Štěpánka Jislová, PASEKA (CZ)

Author Tereza Drahoňovská and illustrator Štěpánka Jislová will present their joint work that follows the rich tradition of world autobiographical comics. Tereza never thought she’d be bald before her boyfriend. She couldn’t imagine missing the ponytail that tickled her back. And she certainly wouldn’t have thought that the neighbors and the people on the street would show their support, thinking she was going through chemotherapy.

Roll Out the Barrels!

Roll Out the Barrels! features eleven comic books with the personal memories of eye-witnesses of the end of World War II in Western Bohemia. The stories were drawn by students of the Faculty of Design and Art of Ladislav Sutnar of the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen. The comic book scripts were written by Kristýna Plíhalová. The project was created thanks to the initiative  Memory of the Nation – Plzeň.

Cultivate Hope

The theme in the 10th annual comic-book competition for primary and secondary school focuses on the current situation where we are under pressure from a crisis – whether from a pandemic or climate change. Therefore Cultivate hope!
