This book starts its journey with BookCrossing from Delphi, Greece

"Can a wolf fall in love with a sheep? Could he, where other wolves see a tasty meal, see his other half? Could he turn vegetarian for the sake of love? Or lie awake at night, singing songs about his sheepheart? Could he fearlessly face the sheepdogs, no matter how badly they beat him?
This wolf can, and he's not a Big Mad Wolf. He is a Wool-Wooing Wolf who sees the good side of everybody. He insists that the world will one day be a better place. He is the Big Bad Wolf turned good!

A book of true love, heroism, friendship and... stalking."

8 out of 10

Αρκάς (Arkas) is a Greek comics artist who published his first work sometime on the early '80s and he has produced tons of great comic strips since then, starring interesting characters in interesting settings. Among many others, there are innocent Lifers,Good Wolfs who are in desparate love with a sheep, Video game characters, Sharks, Sparrows, Prophets, Charon/Death him self, all featuring in diverse places, from Paradise to Hell, from Post-Apocalyptic destroyed worlds to the Deep Ocean and various other themes and settings!

Arkas' comics have a unique style, combining humor, sarcasm and sometimes deep philosophical questions. Often, but not always, the stories involve two main characters: One is the rational, sceptical and questioning figure, while the other is a rude, vulgar or just empty-headed character who has most of the funny punchlines.

Since publishing his very first work, the Rooster, Arkas became immediately very popular. Every new work he publishes becomes a hit while he has been translated into other languages and has become quite known outside Greece. Translations of his books can be found in English, French, German, Romanian, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Bulgarian, Polish and Serbian. He certainly is a very well-known figure in Greece and beyond. Or...is he?

Here is an other interesting fact about Arkas: No one knows who Arkas is. Is he really a guy? Maybe a team of different artists? A woman? Arkas has been quoted to believe that the artist should be known through his work, not through personal promotion. A mystery has been created around his identity and his real name still remains unknown while there is lots of speculation about who he may be. Taking into consideration that his work is super popular for the last 30 years or so, this is quite impressive.

Arkas in Greek means Arcadian or someone from the province of Arcadia. However, the CamelCase style in which his name is written suggests that Arkas may be only his initials. Years ago, the Greek newspaper Kathimerini mentioned in a small article that Arkas' name is Antonis Evdemon. According to rumors, he is a psychiatrist, possibly a university professor. Still no one knows for sure.

One might learn a bit more about his work by checking www.arkas.gr


Different people have a different sense of humor and of course sometimes there are cultural or other barriers when reading a comic book in translation, but I think Arkas really worths a try, that's why I register this book here in Book Crossing. I'd love to read opinions of the future readers on this.

Happy Reading!

Thank you for this comic book, as you know I like to read any type of books... I have started it already and it is indeed quite funny :-D
I will certainly share it around my neighbourhood, as I am in the process of setting up a Little Free Library in my front garden!

Quite funny at times and some irony I liked, too.
