Spain's industry

Euro Weekly has a short article about the comics medium in Spain:
Who would have thought that the humble comic book should be the topic of a serious and significant review promoted by the Spanish Government?

Spain has a thriving comic book industry

On January 18, the Minister of Culture, Ernest Urtasun, accompanied by the Secretary of State for Culture, Jordi Martí, and the general director of Books, Comics and Reading, María José Gálvez, along with the president of the Sectorial Association of the Comic, Alejandro Casasola, presented the White Book of Comics in Spain, the largest study that has been carried out on the comic sector in Spain.

The following day, representatives of the comic industry were invited to meet with Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez where he was presented with his own copy of the document.
I'd appreciate this news a lot more if it weren't for the fact Sanchez is such a leftist. I'm sure Spain has plenty of comics to consider. But it's regrettable a government led by somebody as troubling as Sanchez are the ones working on this promotional project.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
