Traditionally, the award ceremony of the Goethe Medal takes place on 28 August, the birthday of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Since this year's event with British author Ian McEwan was a digital one, we asked three German graphic novel artists to reinvent it and contribute through visual storytelling in short graphic novels!
The journey takes us from early Ian McEwan's inspirations to satisfactory hotels - and at one point, even Mephisto makes an appearance!
New graphic novels are published every month, on the 28 August, 28 September and 28 October!

With a lecture based on his book Why the Germans Do It Better. Notes from a Grown-up Country, John Kampfner was our guest at last year's Brady Lecture, and so we are all the more pleased to see his book being a current bestseller!
