I Blog, therefore I Am

This month NBM will start announcing my comic ‘Philosophy: a Discovery in Comics’, and I am very happy and excited about it! This book appeared originally in Dutch in 2010, and I am very pleased with the American title NBM came up with. (the original is ‘Philosophy in the Picture’).

Philosophy: a Discovery in Comics


Because it IS a Discovery in Comics – as much for me as for the reader, I hope. I have no formal education in philosophy and I think you don’t need one to be a philosopher. Philosophy is literally: love of knowledge, so all you need to enjoy my book is an interest in Thinking, and Thinking about Thinking. And I throw in the occasional cartoony joke as well, so a sense of humor is also a pre-requisite.

If you want to know more about the book, check it out on my website: www.senoeni.net

On this blog I will post more about myself and how the book came about in the coming months, see keep an eye on this spot.

About the Author

Margreet de Heer
Margreet de Heer
Margreet de Heer lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, with her husband Yiri T. Kohl. A long time ago, she studied Theology at the University of Amsterdam, but through divine intervention she ended up as a comic artist. She worked at the famous comic store Lambiek from 2000 until 2005, and wrote a book about Dutch comics together with Kees Kousemaker. Since 2005 she is a full-time comic artist producing a wide range of work, from children's comics in magazines to cartoons at business conferences. In 2007 she started making philosophical comic "reports" for newspaper Trouw. This resulted in a book edition in 2010, soon followed by graphic novels about Religion, Science and World Domination. Margreet plans to expand the series to a total of seven books, also covering the subjects Love, Death and Self. 'Philosophy: a Discovery in Comics' and 'Science: a Discovery in Comics' are successfully published at NBM. 'Religion: a Discovery in Comics' came out in October 2015.
