Anguesângue by Daniel Lima / Published in 2023 by kuš! comics in Latvia (text is in English) / 68-page paperback, 6 x 8 inches, full color
"Daniel Lima has composed an alluring, spooky tune to the lyrics of Franz Kafka. Sing along...if you dare." -- Peter Kuper
What unites the band Faint Spirit, a rented room on the 3rd floor, a soliloquy for an invisible audience, a hidden inquirer, a visit at dusk in November and a neighbor who is there to spy on us when we leave? Eugénio, a guest who doesn't find consolation in not believing in ghosts. Anguesângue is a three-chapter adaptation of the short stories Unhappiness and On Parables by Franz Kafka.
Daniel Lima (*1971, Angola) lives and works in Lisbon, Portugal. He's a visual artist who builds neurotic narratives without precedents nor consequences based on our collective imaginary. He's a professor in the Illustration and Comics department at the Ar.Co art school in Lisbon.
