IGOR HOFBAUER kabinett book



The Igor Hofbauer book INSPEKTOR GÜRTEL is available 24/7 until the 19th of October at Kabinett in MQ, Vienna. Afterwards, we will have the book with us on TONTO Comics tables for the rest of the year, so there are other places to get it as well.

In 2015, I invited Igor to stay in Vienna for one month as part of the Kabinett residency at quartier 21, MQ. This summer, the Comics story coming out of this stay was on sale in our vending machine from July until October. I also did some editing on the book as well as ‘designing’ the covers using Igor’s existing drawings (if you can call this design already).

In fatter news, Igor’s new book MISTER MORGEN has come out from L’Association and will arrive in a bit from Conundrum Press in Canada as a English language edition (with crisp translation by Nina Bunjevac!).
