Check it out I think there are maybe three books here in this letter stash from C’est Bon that have managed to pile up here. Dig that Inés Estrada cover art and that “original autobio” Julia Scott book.
Check out the latest C’est Bon Anthology vol. 30: A New Hope that has been sent to the Letters to Meathaus postal box with comics by Mattias Elftorp, Steve Nyberg, Stefan Petrini, Kinga Dukaj, Christina Cromnow, Luddvig Melin, Henrik Rogowski, Emei Burell, Oskar Aspman, and Frøydis Sollid Simonsen. This is a 100-pager, full color, and back to the previous format of being a variety of individual stories, thanks CBK.
Above, get your eyeballs on C’est Bon Anthology vol 31: Find Me In This City by Mari Ahokoivu, Finnish illustrator. You can see more of her artwork and drawings and comics on Tumblr and her website such as this character line up below.
C’est Bon Anthology vol 29: What We Knew by Sarah Kläpp, Swedish illustrator. You can get into more artwork and comics from Sarah on her website, such as this drawing full of attack action below.
Two books sent to Meathaus from the comics publisher, C’est Bon. Here’s some PR action for you:
C’est Bon has sent Meathaus a new hardcover book When the Last Story is Told by Allan Haverholm, which asks the question in the accompanying letter:
“When the last story is told, what fills the space it leaves? In the latest book by visual artist Allan Haverholm, narrative gives way to another order of meaning.”
The book consists of “60 pages of minimalist colour compositions alternatingly obscured with bold strokes of white paint and abstract, black textures … Like a message from an alien mind, When the Last Story is Told is loaded with meaning encoded in an undecipherable language.” Since the language is undecipherable, you can appreciate the abstract comics grid-like compositions on Allan’s website and the C’est Bon Kultur website and tumblr.
Check it out, C’est Bon Kultur has sent Meathaus the latest two issues of their C’est Bon Anthology,volumes 23 All Saints, and 24 HAIR. All Saints is a hardcover solo book by Marcel Ruijters and HAIR is the normal CBA multi-artist book, this time with international artists contributing their own work with the theme of “hair”. Results include three different comics with bears involved, one guy who shaves his body hair off (including the eyebrows) in a series of full body nude photographs, and one with a dj cat (and a tone-deaf KKK gag). See previous issues sent to Meathaus here and check out more on the C’est Bon Kultur website for complete contributor lists.
Got a new split issue of comics from Rabid Rabbit and C’est Bon Kultur recently, the fruit of a transatlantic union. Shown above are two one-pagers in the Rabid Rabbit side by Andres Vera and Benjamin Sea. Both the RR and CBK sites seem to be simultaneously “under construction”, so there isn’t much more information available in those places yet.
C’est Bon Anthology is put out by C’est Bon Kultur in Sweden and features the talents of comics creators worldwide alongside feature articles such as the Mike Diana interview pictured above from a recent issue. James contributed the cover for Volume 3. These dudes often show up at MoCCA in NYC so if they come again this year you can check their wares out in person.
