Artist Profile: Melandros Ganas

Our next Featured Artist for CCC17 is Greek comics writer Melandros Ganas!

Melandros Ganas was born in Larissa, Greece. He has always been passionate about comics – reading and collecting them ever since he can remember! Melandros has been actively contributing to the Greek comic book scene for many years, as a long-time moderator at Greek Comics forum and more recently at Comicdom Con Athens, as he is responsible of the area for self-published works and fanzines. He is also the creator of Small Press Comics, a blog which catalogues the small press comics released in Greece. For the last four years, he has been a permanent columnist on Comicdom Con’s website.

His loyalty and dedication to comics, led him to founding a small publishing press, named “Εκδόσεις του Κάμπου” (Kampos Publications). “Εκδόσεις του Κάμπου” has produced more than 60 published comics until this day. In 2015, the comic “Freakshow” (script by Melandros and art by Nick Giamalakis), won the first prize in the category of Self-Publishing, the newly established institution of Greek Comic Awards at Comicdom Con Athens.
