Bitterkomix 16

Conrad Botes and Anton Kannemeyer

Bitterkomix 16


Bitterkomix 16 is social commentary at its sharpest. The latest annual continues to challenge South African stereotypes through their sometimes controversial and outrageous illustrations. Over the last 15 years or so, Bitterkomix has been (as one critic remarks), 'consistently challenging and outrageous, undeniably brilliant, and impossible to ignore'. Internationally, the Bitterkomix duo of Anton Kannemeyer and Conrad Botes stand at the forefront of the new international expressionist comix movement. Locally, they have raised a storm of controversy through their assault on the Afrikaner cultural mainstream, which they have developed into a broader critique of South African society. Other contributors include: JC Menu, former head of L'Association; Matti Hagelberg, the most famous Finnish comic author today; and Daniel and Tienie du Plessis, old friends of Bitterkomix.
