The short story inspired by the spirit of Japanese comics iyashikei (soothing, healing) shows several perspectives of the issue of the aging society, starting from the gap between young and older generation, life in retirement homes without the family, to the feeling of endangerment by today’s world and its modern technology.
For the first time this year, KOMA has announced a Call for Comics or Opencall. We have invited all professionals and amateurs to participate on the festival in its theme of EXTINCTION AND ENDANGERED SPECIES. We have been sent 23 sketched and finished comics from which we chose ten most interesting ones to be exhibited. The pieces present various topics from artificial intelligence to personal stories.
