Dimitris Kamenos was born in Athens on September, 1976. He holds degrees in both Greek Literature and History from the University of Athens. His work as writer and illustrator started appearing in various newspapers, TV and radio shows since the early ‘00s.
Kamenos collaborated with the Greek comic book magazine ‘Blue Comet’, having published two comic book stories under the titles ‘Ballad of the Seventh Sphere’ and ‘Crime in Anapli’ (the second based on a short story by Yannis Ragos).
The artist also scripts and draws ‘World War Sapiens’ a historical fiction adventure which takes place in an alternate 1939. The Homo Sapiens share the planet with Neanderthals and other human species, altough their coexistence is anything but peaceful. The first book that follows the adventures of the Necromancer Arthur Barrett was printed by Jemma Press while a second one is prepared and due for next year.
The five issues of ‘Homo’, which precede the events of WWS, are available by the same Publisher.
Kamenos’ latest projects include the comic strip ‘Mefisto’ which appears in the weekly supplement ‘kare kare’ of the ‘Efimerida ton Syntakton’ newspaper. It’s a humorous, free adaptation of Goethe’s classic work where a weary Mephistopheles struggles to revitalize a selfish and hypochondriac Faust. A first self-published volume of Mefisto’s adventures is available in Greek under the title “Mefisto-a medical soap”.
