This will offend all super heroic fans of comic books: “King of Comics” is the official nickname for master artist Jack Kirby. Fine, then, since the offense –built with a kind stroke and revolutionary content– is the superpower of every gay-related comic book made by the most wanted man: German artist Ralf König. Rosa von Praunheim –who else?– will be the one to get on his knees in front of one of the most wildly lucid, cheeky, fruity, ironic, and sharp comic book artists in Germany, and the entire world (think Asterix and translate that superb quality to an exploration of everyday gay life, constantly mocking the poor dumb straight people). His emergence in the 1970s in parallel to the gay community, his alternative life in German comix, and his still intact ability to find the absurd in any social convention: Rosa von Praunheim peels all the layers of King König. The way it should be: a naked king.
