Draw-inspiring From Crumb to Cairo: celebrating a global art form

The Fumetto International Comix Festival 2013 offered a fascinating insight into classic comic strips and also those which stretched the traditional definition. From Robert Crumb, one of the leading creators of underground comics, to cartoonists from the Arab world and Swiss newcomer Bastien Gachet.

The days when comics were primarily entertainment for teenagers are long gone. The wide-ranging issues addressed today include current affairs, historical events and biographies of normal people.

Illustrators continue to develop highly creative narrative and visual methods. These can be seen in the following selection of works, which were shown in Lucerne. (All images: fumetto.ch)
