Comic im April: Fabian Meister


In April, my comics will become «wormy and precisely scribbled,» as Fabian Meister describes his own drawing style. Recently awarded the Pulsar Advancement Award at Fumetto, Fabian shared even more insights with me in the interview — including an impressively long and imaginative list of things and activities he wanted to become as a child. I'm looking forward to all the diverse comics.

Zurich's Squares In Interview: Römerhof


After my interviews with Idaplatz, Röntgenplatz, Paradeplatz, Hallwylplatz, Bürkliplatz, Lindenplatz, and Piazza Cella, my next and final coup follows. I had the opportunity to conduct an interview with Römerhof in District 7 - here we go.


Name: Römerhof
Date of Birth: Originally part of Zurich since the Middle Ages. From 1895 onwards, shaped by the operation of the Dolderbahn. In short: Old as the hills, but young at heart.
Status: In a long-standing relationship with the Dolderbahn
Occupation: Stationmaster and Chef
Interests: Speaking French and riding trains
Quote: «Where the Dolderbahn starts, the journey does not end - the adventure begins here.»
