STRÎMB LIFE–BRYNAR ÅBEL BANDLIEN
2009, 64 PAGES
First part of a trilogy, 100% the first Romanian queer comic book, 99% the first comic in the world made by a colourblind Norwegian dancer who didn't know how to draw at the time, 100% the first time "queer" was translated in Romanian with "strîmb".
Born during the golden age of CNDB, "Strîmb life" talks about being queer in a straight city like Bucharest (that's a joke) where neopunks, streetdogs, florărese, fashion victims, street kids, tranvestites, vampires, pișcotari and ponies collide. You will meet Brynjar and Manuel and live for a while in their home strîmb home, dance at Ota's with their queer friends and even meet their imaginary adopted kid, George Michael Jackson.
It's sold out, babes. But watch the video below.
