We Are Still at War at LICAF 2018

A presentation at this year’s The Lakes International Comic Art Festival celebrating the UK launch of the graphic novel ‘We Are Still at War’ which sold more than 13,000 copies in the original Czech edition. The book features documentary comics in the style of Art Spiegelman’s ‘Maus’, combining oral history with high artistry.

It contains 13 testimonies by people who experienced the totalitarian regime – either Nazi rule or communism. Two of those artists, Tomáš Kučerovský and Toy_Box will be in conversation with Paul Gravett.
