Article: Morgenstadt 2050
Posted: April 1, 2012
Here’s my introduction to a 208-page trilingual print anthology compiling a fascinating collaborative online comics blog, updated weekly, entitled Morgenstadt 2050, otherwise known as issue number 107 of the Moga Mobo series of free comics. This project is being co-ordinated by the enterprising Berlin-based Moga Mobo collective, consisting of Legron (alias Thomas Gronle), Titus Ackermann and Jonas Greulich, in partnership with the Goethe Institute in Taipei, Taiwan. The trio are presenting their German comics alongside contributions from thirteen Asian creators. All of them use comics to explore life in the cities of today and in the not-so-distant future of 2050.
