"Take her to Sea, mr. Kalaizis"

Οlder readers (whatever that means for a 3 months old blog) of this blog, might remember first mentioning "Galera" here:

Well, the time has come.
The final product of an almost year long preparation period has begun the make-or-break voyage to the Newsstands.



I'll leave to others to say whether the crew comprises of the best,but i guarantee it comprises of the most pissed.

Giannis Kalaizis, that ol' sea-dog of Greek political cartooning, has served as the Man with the Dream, and also as the glue holding the vessel together.
Full Speed Ah...(oh, enough with the bloody sail metaphors,i don't even know how to swim properly).

Id, here is how it works:anyone in a cool country gets a free copy in exchange of a bed in his (preferrably her) house for a week ;)
Now seriously-i'll have to get back to you on that, we are still in the organization process.But i am pretty sure that wherever there is a will, there is a way.

I searched some newstands in Patras and they hadn't heard of it. Is it being distributed only in Athens?

Spyros, look what I'm missing when I don't check your comments!!

Well, lots of beds in my house, it's a cool country indeed (with all the possible meanings of the word), and I'm a she :)))

(Seriously - I'd love to subscribe to Galera - when you have any idea whether that's possible and what the cost is, please send me an email! Thanks xxx)

Well...I guess I missed it :( I searched at Athens newstands as well last weekend but no luck. 'Protoporia' doesn't seem to have it either (according to a search in their site). Oh, well...

The first issue can be found anywhere in Greece except Athens & Thessaloniki, where you can find now the second issue.Some copies of the first can be found in the "Solaris" comic shop (Botasi 6),and in the magazine's office, i guess.I'll post a link to the site as soon as it's online (one of these days).
