world comics

My Korean publisher OPEN BOOKS translate my work with incredible attention to design & production. Check out their edition of CARNET DE VOYAGE with a 3/4 jacket.

In the upper right is a “LASER QUEST” jam with Lewis Trondheim. I’m reminded that Kim Thompson
was the first to translate & publish Trondheim’s work in the US.
Also, this news is late now that Hassan Rohani has been elected president of Iran, but my dear friend Amir co-orchestrated a very cool presidential campaign for the star of his & Khalil’s book ZAHRA’S PARADISE. (author photo by Michael Macor)  If you haven’t yet read their book, you must!

  1. thank you so much for sharing amir and khalil´s work with us. today zahra can only be fictional, but fantasy can be the seed of future reality: maybe one day we´ll witness the miracle.

  2. Amazing edition. I wish every publisher would care so much.

  4. Hello Craig Thompson,

    I’m a 23 year old french artist, I started comics 10 years ago and today, to celebrate this, there is an article on my blog where I speak about my 10 favourite comic books. Blankets is one of them ! ->
    I translate for you the text I made about it :
    “ Tell a first love with poesy, realism, humor, dream, with a rich graphism, is it possible ? Yes : read Blankets !”
    Thanks for this wonderful book !
    I have a tumblr where I put my drawings translated from french to english (every sunday) :

    Have a good work !
