Bitterkomix 16

Bitterkomix 16 sees the celebration of twenty-one years of artistic genius. In this latest collection, Anton Kannemeyer - aka Joe Dog - unflinchingly explores the vigorous debates around race that enliven and shadow daily life in South Africa. Adopting Herge's Tintin as the archetypal figure of the white settler, Kannemeyer fearlessly goes where no comic has gone before. Praised in the New York Times for its semiotic sophistication, graphic ingenuity and X-ray political vision , Kannemeyer's work is as relentless in its critique of the hypocrisy and racist attitudes of white society as it is of the greed and corruption of Africa's new political elite.
