When he was little he wanted to be big , and now he wants to be a child again. He makes up stories to help him on that trip back.
Although he was warned that poetry is poison, he long ago drank a whole cup. Since then he is going around, underneath all the brambles and above all clouds.
It all started in 1999 when brothers Xabi and Martin tried to write a children’s story together. Their story, “Airean ere negu usaina nabari da” (1999, Erein), ended up winning the Lizardi Prize.
Since then, as a creative tandem, they have written several works in children’s literature, in adult fiction, and most recently in the world of comics.
Both Martin and Xabier have each published their own works as well.
We will publish a new comic in the US. It’s called BROKEN EYE and without telling too much about the story, we can anticipate that it will be drawn by the incredible young Basque artist IÑAKI ARENAS and that it will be published by the American publisher SCOUT COMICS. Fantastic traveling companions for this new adventure!
