WOW


Wow is a comic book by Ariadni Krissa Kousela, Aris Papadopoulos & Jimkos, published by Patakis & translated by me.
It is the first contemporary political comic book in Greece with Yanis Varoufakis as a political superhero. A political comic book that depicts the first chapter of the European drama, which is still unfolding without end in sight and has a tremendous impact on the lives of the people of Europe.
The creators of Wow have drawn aspects from both the real and the imaginary world, having at the crux of it, the most important events of Greece under the memoranda, culminating in the Greek referendum of the 5th of July, 2015 and the signing of the 3rd memorandum.
An epic battle takes place between a Greek European hero, who along with his valuable allies, Karl Marx, John Maynard Keynes, Adam Smith, John von Neumann, John Forbes Nash Jr. and Ariadne, struggle for freedom and democracy against the “monsters” of the European political scene.
A battle in the financial negotiating arena between Greek Finance Minister, Yanis Varoufakis, code name V, the authoritarian European elite, the troikan army, and the European minotaur. First episode unabridged.
Famous heroes & villains spark a current era οf revolutions that threaten the old Europe while the emergence of a new Europe promises wonders.
It is an era when economists are called upon to become heroes and heroes to become economists.
