This year Crossing Border will feature a unique preview of Scratches II. Scratches is an annual magazine, published by Scratch Books, featuring works by Dutch, Flemish and International comic book artists. At this year’s edition of Crossing Border, Scratches will be represented by established authors such as Herr Seele, Erik Kriek, Judith Vanistendael, Brecht Vandenbroucke, Blexbolex, Aart Taminiau and Tobias Tak and up-and-coming talents as Ludwig Volbeda, Kristina Tzekova and Lukas Verstraete and by international stars Ulli Lust and Derf Backderf.
Joost Swarte, author and editor-in-chief of Scratches, will provide a visual introduction to each author, after which publisher and editor Mara Joustra will interview them. Afterwards, there will be the opportunity to have books signed by the authors.
