Frontier #8: Anna Deflorian debuts at Toronto Comic Arts Festival on May 9th, and will be available for sale here on May 5th.
Our first female creator from outside of North America, Anna Deflorian is a talented painter, illustrator, and cartoonist whose colorful and vibrants stories span a variety of media. Anna lives and works in Italy, and is the author of the graphic novel "Roghi" from Canicola edizioni. Her work has been featured previously in Kuti 21, Sans Soleil 3, and Kuš! 9: Female Secrets (where I first encountered her work).
Frontier is a quarterly art and comics monograph series produced by Youth in Decline. Inspired in part by South Korea's SSE Project and in part by DC Comics "Solo" series, each issue will highlight exciting and challenging new work by a single artist. The printing and look of each issue will change to match the style of work.
Frontier is focused on highlighting the work of up-and-coming talent in the North American indie comics scene, introducing the work of international artists we adore, and presenting uncommon dispatches from our favorite creators.
