The new anthology «Athens: The comic book # 2″ arose from the need of established and young artists to tell stories inspired by the great changes that have taken place in Athens over the last 2 years. Different perspectives speak of different aspects of city life: apart from the urban landscape of Athens that gave inspiration to Katerina Stamati and Kristel Pent, the lifestyle of Athenian society at the time of the crisis is presented in a caustic way by Tety Solou and Efi Theodoropoulou (and senario by Theoni Drakopoulou), while Wild Drawing’s approaches with humor the failings of today’s society. Despite the dystopian vision of Thanassis Petrou, Malk and Nikos Papamichail, each story ends with an optimistic note with the things that still give us hope in these times – a similar climate is prevalent in the stories on relationships in Athens by Giorgos Tsardanidis and Alexia Lougiaki. The lyrical approach of the Athenian urban landscape by Evangelos Androutsopoulos, a creator moving between Athens and Helsinki, Manolo’s snapshots from daily life and the cover of Daniel Egneus highlight images and thoughts typical of anyone who moves in the city of Athens.
