„In nova fert animus mutatas dicere formas / corpora.“
I intend to speak of forms changed into new entities;
- Оvid, Мetamorphoses, 8 AD
Our book collects two novellas, revealing a few of the countless faces of the metamorphosis – ARIADNA and UNDER MY SKIN. The world as we know it, changes in the blink of an eye. The unthinkable becomes reality. The inevitable is immediate. When we change before we know it, or the change is slow, hard, and painful. The hero turns into a monster, and the executioner into a savior. The letters come together to form a text. It combines with the illustrations. Together, they have a different meaning. Together they make comics.
UNDER MY SKIN is the first Bulgarian digital graphic novella. About the ballerina Alexandria and the tatto artist Dorian. A personal story about the masks that we put, and the choices we make. A modern fairy tale, intertwining urban fantasy and horror. Presented in a new way for this book.
ARIADNA is a personal story withn an epic change of the reality. About the ace pilot Ariadna and the Angel of Death. Different subgenres of fantasy are combined on the pages of the comic.
The authors are going through metamorphoses while following the inspiration for the story, they are telling.
We tell you about the metamorphoses of bodies and souls, which transform into new characters, personalities and fates...
We’re happy that our novella METAMORPHOSES is part of a line for comics and graphic books called ТУШ (INK) in the Bulgarian publisher ERGO, that we launched with our book IMAGINARIUM. From its debut in 2002, ERGO has become synonymous with high quality European literature. Every book they release is proof of their motto “To books – with love!”
