The Big German Comic-Chronicle
From the introduction of colour TV to the fall of the Wall, from fake “Hitler-Diaries” to the reconstruction of the Dresden Frauenkirche – Isabel Kreitz has turned formative events from German post-war history into fascination graphic novels each of page-length. She tells great historic events as everyday-events, and show how history transforms
everyday-life of ordinary people – be it for a day or an entire life.
Isabel Kreitz, born 1967 in Hamburg, is one of the most ambitious female comic artists in Ger-many. Her comics examine both the phenomenon of youth culture and the historical and politi-cal events of German history. She has published amongst others the graphic novel “Die Ent-deckung der Curry-Wurst” (1996, based on the novella by Uwe Timm), „Der 35. Mai” (based on Erich Käster’s novel) and „Die Sache mit Sorge“ (2008). She was awarded the most important prizes for Comic Art, e.g. in 1997 the Deutschen Comic-Preis, 1998 Max- und- Moritz- Preis and Sondermann-Preis.
