iñigo aranbarri

Aranbarri has written a very current novel. And that’s why he’s started at the beginning, in 1766. Who is the novel’s main character? Who dreams up who? Something for an hour or for a day? We know that this event and that event are not going to have happy endings; however, we immediately want to know what the ending is going to be because the book moves fast and the writing’s polished. Because they don’t know? Because they don’t Why don’t the economists tell us what’s happening like this? Why haven’t the historians told us about this? The killers have written the official history and we’ve even gone and believed what they’ve taught us. Killers. And leeches. Until April.


dictadores: francisco vs leopoldo

sergi puyol, irkus e. zeberio

This comic is divided into two stories. The first, Sergi Puyol’s, is the story of a futurist Franco fighting against aliens. The second, Irkus E. Zeberio’s, is the story of Leopold of Belgium and his rape and pillage of The Congo. These two mad stories, dark and psychotronic, are in the same volume like two songs in a split record. As well as the stories themselves, they have other points in common. The styles of drawing different, but the the colours. We’ve put it in a special place on our shelves.


ez zen diruagatik

ana jaka garcia

We first came across her poems in her blog Linea discontinua and, on reading “Ez zen diruagatik”, you can hear the same voice in a way. And that isn’t just because of her direct, clean, no-nonsense style. Nor is it because of the lack of superficial metaphors or sentimentalism. It is because there is a sort of maturity in Jaka’s writing. A writer who has no need to make an effort to impress. The novel’s themes are friendship and money and, while the intentions are different, it is reminiscent of Belén Gopegui’s Lo Real. Given how important money is, why is it so seldom dealt with in contemporary literature?


humor cristiano

querido antonio

The author who hides behind the peculiar nickname Querido Antonio, Alberto Gonzalez Vazquez, is one of the most innovative and unconventional authors of audio-visual works in the last decade. AGV is a creator of new narrative and the reusing of images. That may not mean anything to you. But if we say that, amongst other things, he does videos for El Intermedio, you’ll get the picture. You could say that Humor Cristiano is the comic version of his audio-visuals. Subtle, surrealist humour, as crude and cutting as it is black. There’s no self-censorship. A must.
