Three years of intensive work
The notion of creating a comic book which approaches the 1821 Revolution in an academic way, but at the same time in a way that is easily comprehensible to the public, comes into being in 2016. The idea owes itself to the curators of the National Historical Museum, Natasa Kastriti, Regina Katsimardou and Panagiota Panariti. In 2017, the “practice on paper” with Soloup starts. In 2018, the H.F.R.I action for the 200 years since the Revolution is announced. A partnership is formed with the University of the Aegean and Professor Evi Sampanikou. We hand in our proposal and out of more than 70 other academic proposals we win first place! A newfound recognition of the art of comics in Greece. The responsibility is huge, to be under the auspices of the National Historical Museum, heavy. It took endless sleepless nights for the work to finally reach this point. Alive. In front of you. To be judged by you.
