Ever since man learned how to transform his visions into something solid, to plan and build things – say "houses" – he has been drawing architecture. And of course – when built – it soon turned into an elementary source of inspiration. Now those of you who tried, will admit it rather sooner than later: drawing perspectives is a pain in the bootie. It's good to know that there are many comic book artists – some most famous – looking back on an architectural career or background and including it in their work to create a certain atmosphere or mood. Like, for example, recently mentioned American artist Marshall Rogers, legendary Winsor McCay or the great Belgian mastermind Francois Schuiten, who – born into a family of architects – is Europe's most outstanding artist, when it comes to architecture. Working with writer Benoît Peeters he has dwelled on the subject extensively. And there are newcomers as well: Swiss architect Daniel Bosshart has recently received some publicity for his comic book "Metamorphosis". European cities like Paris, Brussels or Rome offer various attractions – not to mention Asian metropolises! Katushiro Otomo's "Akira" for example shows the destruction and future visions of Tokyo in 2030. As we can see, urban settings seem to be most suited to impress readeres as they offer endless detail. Skyscrapers, round arches, arcades, countless rows of windows, artistically decorated jutty creating suspenseful patterns. New York City very early offered all of the above and started attracting illustrators with its groundbreaking and futuristic scapes. "Little Nemo" climbed across skyscraper as soon as 1914 and even a few covers of the science fiction magazin "Amazing Stories" (starting in 1926) showed futuristic architectural scenes. It's "inventor" Hugo Gernsback had published another magazine, "The Electrical Experimenter", in 1913 showing technical visions of the future. And Manhatten will be known to most comic book readers as "Gotham City", home base to Batman, while Superman resides in Metropolis – which at the beginning of the series presented a nice picture of the New York of the 1940s and 50s. Swiss comic festival NEXTCOMIC chose to put a special focus on architecture in 2012, featuring an exceptional exhibition highly decorated at Venice's Biennale. It shows that Architecture isn't just an inspiration for comic books, but the other way around: Copenhagen based architects surrounding Bjarke Ingels, presented their visions of architecture in a comic book. Their claim: "Yes Is More!". And didn't WE always say so?
