Introducing the Abrafaxe
The Abrafaxe are three little adventurers who have been travelling around the world since 1976. We don't quite know where Abrax, Brabax and Califax actually come from, but they seem to be able to jump into different historical times and places. Thus, they might help building the pyramids in Ancient Egypt, go sailing with the legendary Sir Francis Drake or find themselves on a journey on the famous Orient Express.
The Abrafaxe act with charm, wit and team spirit and would never allow violence as a form of solution. Even though they are very different personalities and don't always agree with each other, they are true friends who would never let each other down.
To read about the three little heroes' adventures is great fun for any age group. At the same time you can learn interesting facts about different epochs in history as well as countries and regions all over the world where the stories are set. While the stories are fictive, the historical settings are authentic and thoroughly investigated. The excellent graphics done by professional comic artists round off the picture. Thus, you get a good insight into the cultural, political, or social conditions of the Abrafaxe's specific hosting countries.
