46 page wordless comic by the Flemish artist Frodo De Decker

Frodo De Decker was born on November 10, 1981 in Antwerp. While he attended school as a young boy he spent most of his time scribbling in books. So after high school he went to Sint-Lukas University College of Art and Design in Brussels to study graphic design, but after two years he dropped out to focus on being a strip cartoonist. In this period he participated successfully in several competitions for strip cartoonists.
Nevertheless a real breakthrough of his work did not follow so Frodo decided to concentrate on another passion of his, the guitar.
He attended the Jazz Studio in Antwerp where he completed his studies easily and with great success. Meanwhile he has been giving classes in a lot of music academies for kids and adults. After years of non-activity as a strip cartoonist, he recently started drawing again, stimulated by his environment. the result of this revived passion is 'Otto'.

Tainted

iPad app : iTunes link

free

64-Page wordless Graphic Novel “Tainted” collects short comics about men and women, and their emotions. Everything without a single word, only with emotions. The colors, the characters may look sweet on the first sight, but behind that, there is a sad truth about love. The truth about loneliness, breaking up, separation and incapability of being together. These short stories are the metaphor of love, the pure extract of the most famous, but also most painful emotion. Unfortunately love is sometimes tainted. And that is the main theme of this little comic book.

INFORMATION ABOUT THE AUTHORS:

Bartosz Sztybor: Journalist, film and comic critic, but first and foremost writer of both comic books and movie scripts. His articles were published in many polish newspapers, and his short comics appeared in the press, zines and numerous anthologies. Won multiple awards at comic festivals (including awards in Poland, Italy, Serbia, Republic of Macedonia and Netherlands). He is the writer of two graphic novels: “Szanowny” and “Tainted”.

Piotr Nowacki: Born in 1979 in Działdowo, now lives in Warsaw. He published his works in almost every comic magazine in Poland. He is also the head editor of Karton – the most popular polish comic magazine. He's the author of several comic books: two parts of “Kwaziu”, “Mutująca Teczka” and of course “Tainted”. But what's most important (for Piotr of course), he is a happy husband and a happy father.

The Canterbury Tales

iPad app : iTunes link

$1,99

The Canterbury Tales", a work by 14th-century English writer Geoffrey Chaucer, is one of the most important pieces of literature ever. Influential in so many ways, it was the first text to feature a wide range of believable characters. Characters with worldviews completely at odds with the times at that, and historians are still trying to figure out if Chaucer was perhaps an overlooked, brilliant satirist. "The Canterbury Tales" was the first major work of fiction to use prose instead of poetry - indeed, it was the first to be written in English. A landmark then, a truly brilliant achievement by an artist far ahead of his time.

Everything that "Canterbury Tales", this adaptation by 21st-century Belgian comics artist Lük Bey is not.

The importance of being earnest


The importance of being earnest (Tom Bouden / Oscar Wilde)

iPad app : iTunes link

78 page graphic novel (E).
Tom Bouden has turned Oscar Wilde’s best known play into a graphic novel, only this one is set in the present day, and deals with four gentlemen rather then two men and two women. Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff both have secret "siblings" that no one really knows the truth of. Whenever Jack decides to head into town, he tells everyone that he's visiting his "wicked brother Ernest", and upon arriving goes under the identity of Ernest. Algernon, likewise, often escapes his social engagements by going to visit his "sick friend Bunbury". When Jack decides it's time to propose to Algernon's cousin Glenn, however, it sets in motion a series of misidentifications and engagements that takes quite some time to finish unraveling...
