Blood

Women’s comic anthology from Poland

The Blood Anthology illustrates the range of meanings that blood bears, from its mythological aspect (the magical powers attributed to menstrual blood), through the symbolism of heredity – the inevitable genealogical continuity, through revenge and violence, to strong connotations with physical pain. Blood also touches upon various layers in terms of art, not limiting itself to comics. Inside the anthology, we will find references to Frans Masereel’s and Lynd Ward’s woodcut pre-comics; subtle portraits; the simplicity of cartoon art; photomontage and psychedelic references to science-fiction.
