Jonathan 7: Kate _ Cosey
Click the "Milton Glaser" to enlarge!
In the seventh Jonathan album, Cosey introduces the perhaps most popular character of all his stories: Kate. Every interview I read has this same question: is Kate coming back in the next Jonathan album? A lot of readers seem to have fallen in love with Cosey’s most popular character: Kate. When the album appeared, it had immediate success. Cosey: ‘The album was published in 1982 and it was relatively rare. Or you had a hyper sexy girl or else: la Castafiore. There were no female characters you could fall in love with…’ Cosey seems to fall in love with comics characters himself too: he mentions Pandora and Changaï Li, in the Corto Maltese series of Hugo Pratt, and almost all (!) female characters of Jean-Claude Denis. Cosey: ‘They are beautiful without being perfect. I fall in love every time he [Jean-Claude Denis] draws a woman.’
