NZ-Taiwan graphic novel exchange and collaboration

Six graphic novelists and comic artists will participate in a residential exchange between Taiwan and New Zealand as part of a program developed between the Publishers Association of New Zealand (PANZ), the Taipei Book Fair Foundation (TBFF) and the New Zealand Book Council (NZBC).

New Zealand artists Tim Gibson, Rachel Fenton and Ant Sang will collaborate on a graphic novel with Taiwanese graphic novelists Chuang Yung-shin, 61Chi and Ahn Zhe. The residency will take place in Auckland in October 2014, and in Taiwan in February 2015.

The graphic novel will be jointly published by PANZ and TBFF and launched at the Taipei International Book Exhibition (TIBE) in February 2015. As previously reported by Books+Publishing, New Zealand is the Guest of Honour at TIBE in 2015.
