Jungle Night in Latvia
Renata Gąsiorowska makes her debut with the mysterious story of a girl who disappears during a party in the jungle… Jungle Night was recently released in the charming minikus A6 format, as part of Kus!, the leading Latvian comic book publication
The comic was released in the minikus series of Kus! magazine, a title which was awarded best alternative publication at the 2012 Angoulême International Comics Festival, the biggest and most prestigious comic book event in Europe.
Gąsiorowska had previously published her works with Kus!, but the publication of Jungle Night marks her first individual full-length work, with 28 beautifully-coloured pages. The story tells of a little girl’s disappearance at a party held in the jungle. The author doesn't plan to create a Polish version of the book. Instead, she is currently working on a new piece for the local market. No further details have been revealed at this stage.
The Latvian minikus series of A6-format notebooks has previously featured works by other Polish comic book artists, Maciej Sieńczyk and Kuba Woynarowski.
