There will be a good number of works this year @ Barcelona’s Ficomic fest competing to win the always respected “Best Spanish work of the year” prize. 10 outstanding works to be more precise, some of which we’ve already covered like the extremely celebrated and also animated “Cenizas” by Álvaro Ortiz, or those works which few expected and came as a gratifying surprise from veteran Max … “Vapor”, but we have to admit we have a soft spot for David Sánchez’s “No cambies Nunca” on Astiberri.
Perhaps using a personal style and subjects which aren’t that traditional or common in the Spanish comic panorama, David Sánchez brings the crazy scientific world to his second work, where a futuristic Seoul hosts baby monsters, green-skinned women and a good number of egomaniacs.
“Don’t ever change” as we just said is one of the 10 nominees, but there are many other authors competing in 3 other awarded categories where names like Shintaro Kago or Pablo Ríos add some foreign and younger flavors to the fest. The names were announced last Saturday and we’ll get to know the winners early April.
Good Luck David!
