Trip with Drip

 

»That's not true!« What fate has foisted upon him is an imposition even for the most casual wolf: because it has accidentally saved his life, he suddenly has a... rabbit on his hands! If it weren't for the wolf code, which obliges him to take care of the little rodent's well-being. The rabbit can tell you a thing or two about impositions, after all, it drags an annoying drip and a metre-long medication schedule through life. And now a wolf!

 

Josephine Mark sends her unusual group of fates on a fast-paced road trip with everything that goes with it: trigger-happy hunters, cheap motels, bears, freezing IV bags. And the big question of whether it's really just the wolf code that binds them together.

 

»Without exaggeration: I love this book. Rarely has the subject of illness been put on paper as gently as it is pleasurably. A comforting encouragement for young and old and, quite incidentally, a comic that is rarely produced in this country: warm-hearted and very, very funny!« - Ralf König

Until it's rather late for his message to arrive…

The Invisible Spaceship

 

A most unusual space adventure: the crew of the Invisibility 2 discovers that it's easy to turn on the new invisibility drive, but quite harder to turn it off again, since everything on board is invisible now, buttons and switches included. The situation worsens because they cannot move their ship out of the nebula, have to deal with old archenemies and even sticky hair balls, regugitated by technical officer Honk.

 

This is quite a different comic book! There’s not much to see (Some wonderful panels by Box artist Uwe Heidschötter are included, though), but so much to imagine as the readers follow the word balloons and funny sounds Patrick Wirbeleit and Andrew Matthews came up with for this very hilarious story.

Gorm Grimm. Big, strong, hungry

 

As great as finding new friends is: if your new companion is a big, bold, not-too-bright viking torn out of his own time, there’s gonna be trouble! And it’s trouble Julius gets when his new friend encounters cars, strange modern devices, that can take your picture – and delicious wildlife.

 

This funny story reverses traditional roles, where the grown-up is impulsive and the kid has to try to be the reasonable one.

Beautifully drawn by Kim Schmidt (Die drei ??? Kids ) and written by Patrick Wirbeleit (Box ), this is truly a joy to read.

Gorm Grimm.

Reading, writing, hammering

 

That's how it is with Vikings: Out of nowhere they take you by surprise, eat the hair off your head and don't give a damn that you might have had something completely different in mind. Julius can tell you a thing or two about it: Since he's had Gorm Grimm on his back, he suddenly feels like he's in the trickiest level of his favourite computer game.

 

So Julius is having a lot of fun! If only his Viking friend wasn't so much of the past! High time to familiarise Gorm with today's customs. But why waste a knife and fork on food when a warrior can just as easily attack your laughing muscles with it?!
