Conversation with AFP about the World of Comics

(As viñetas da ilustración corresponden ao álbum As falanxes da Orde Negra
de Pierre Christin e Enki Bilal)

Galician comics are probably experiencing their best moment of all time. Agustín Fernández Paz (Vilalba, 1947) has witnessed their evolution from the precarious means and voluntarism of the 1970s to the current brilliant era. A passionate reader of comics, the Galician author and former teacher was a pioneer in introducing comics into the classroom and enthusiastically worked to disseminate the media, which earned him the “Ourense de Banda Deseñada Award” (Ourense Comics Award) in 1992. A little known facet of his career, which we review in this conversation.
