Welcome to Ninth Art Delights!
We find awesome stories that don’t get the attention they deserve and share them with the world…
My name is Theo and I love graphic novels! Growing up in Europe I was surrounded by the best graphic fiction from all over the world. I loved it!
But when my family moved to English speaking world things changed.
Gone were the classics of Franco-Belgian graphic fiction, the minimalist beauty of Japanese manga and the sheer diversity of high quality stories and art I was used to.
I discovered the beauty of English language graphic novels (mostly from the US) but soon realized that good stories where hard to come by. Sure the big commercial publishers (i.e. Marvel and DC) put out awesome material, but quality varies.
Series that would start out strong turned into flat, disappointing titles once the original story arc was over or when another creative team took over.
Great stories took a backseat to short term profits or whatever marketing thinks is cool today.
I totally gave up on graphic novels and immersed myself in ‘real’ literature until a few years ago.
Then I reconnected with my European roots and discovered a whole new world of amazing graphic fiction from Europe, Asia and beyond!
A world I want to share with you!
