Black Tower (Publisher)
|Schwarzer Turm Verlag
|Seat||Weimar ( Germany )|
Rochus Hahn ,
The publisher describes itself as a "publisher for subtle storytelling" and is particularly successful with independent productions such as the erotic series Alraune and Arsinoë as well as the series about the hormone-disrupted rabbit Horst . Numerous other comics “made in Germany” appear under the label.
The author and publisher Hahn realized an experimental concept in 2005: from several interviews with prostitutes , he developed a large number of scripts, which were processed into the erotic and authentic series Whore Stories with the help of many German comic artists . There was also a collaboration with the Berlin prostitute association Hydra , which praised the series for its sincerity.
In addition, Schwarzer Turm has been publishing the Panik Elektro comics collection since 2003 , published by the Hamburg comic artist Wittek , in which works by up-and-coming German artists that have been determined in a competition are published. The subject of the first volume was autobiographical horror , volume two paid homage to the subject of superheroes & science fiction . Volume three was devoted to love stories , the fourth volume was entitled My greatest mistake, and the fifth was about disco .
Since 2005 a manga section has been added. Similar to Panik Elektro , the Black Tower publishes a three-monthly series called Paper Theater , in which young German cartoonists from the manga sector publish their stories. Some individual volumes have already been published or are in planning. To them the horror anthology include 200g Hack , and the fairy tale anthology It was not once ... whose members were determined by a competition, erotic anthology Hungry Hearts (Issuer is Beatrice Beckmann) and the collection of Shōjo -Kurzmangas Blütenträume whose editor Natalie Worms cup ( Summer Rain ) is.
In the children's book area, too, a volume called Kulla was created by the illustrator Anne Pätzke , which will be reissued and continued by Tokyopop-Verlag.
Subway to Sally
In cooperation with the publisher Egmont Manga and Anime , a large anthology will be published in March 2008, which presents various song texts by the popular folk metal band Subway to Sally in comic form.
