The story of Fram, the hero of Cezar Petrescu’s book, gets new clothes after 85 years from its appearance. The project started in Cluj, the capital of Romanian comics, where talented artists illustrate superheroes from all over the world. “Why not do the same thing with a Romanian character for the children of the country?” That is the question and challenge from which everything started. ON THE NEWS The Sippet Day, celebrated every year on November 28th. Why “fre …” Focus on Romania “on National Day: What programs prepares PrimaTV d … How does PSD want to get out of the Bejinariu folder on the threshold of … Comics from magazines such as Cutezatori, Universul Copiilor or Luminiţa have delighted generations of Romanians. The publications have disappeared, but a new generation of talented Romanian artists is working to illustrate superheroes from abroad. Two artists from Cluj have rewritten the adventures of the polar bear, keeping the narrative thread of the novel but adapting it to the 21st century. 10 volumes of 24 pages each with high-quality artwork resulted. Fram’s storiy in digital interactive format for tablets and mobile phones will be available from mid-December. As for the printed books, they will not be available in the bookstores, but can be ordered on the website creştemidei.ro until December 12, when the crowd founding campaign ends. “The differences from Cesar Petrescu’s novel would be the following: firstly, the text is shorter, it is designed to only illustrate the essential moments of the story; then Fram dialogues with the children, it is a story told in the first person. We sprinkled the scenes with the situational humor. We eliminated some brutal scenes of the original story and we focused on the phrases from the novel that best describe Fram as a character adored by children who juggled, jingled and performed tricks. He is a superhero whose super power is to make you happy.”

    Fram

    FRAM is the most lovable polar bear cub in the world. Courageous, friendly and eager to learn, he left behind the Ice Country to discover the world of people without looking back. That’s why he got the name “Fram”, which means in Norwegian “Forward”.

    I'm Poly

    The Brazilian parrot, a POLYchromatic, POLYglot and POLite bird that is a true know-it-all. He reads a lot, talks a lot and has an answer for everything. Of course, he does not always have the right answers, but that does not stop him from being nagging and moralistic almost all the time.

    I am Rina

    The little rhinoceros girl, dreaming to become a balleRINA. She likes flowers, classical music, rum baba and romantic stories. She wears pink peleRINes and would look in show cases all the time, to see if she looks good. She’s very dreamy, a little moody, but she’s generally a pleasant presence (that’s as long as she’s not annoying, then it’s quite different …)

    I am Arpi

    The hedgehog ARPI has the most strange and unexpected ideas. He is a scooter and skateboard champion, but he does not wear a helmet: with his hairstyle, that’s really impossible (did you know that hedgehogs can have up to 7,000 spikes?). He likes beach balls, balloons and inflatable mattresses, but due to natural reasons, they don’t last long when he plays with them.

    I am Hopi!

    The acrobat of the group, she is as childish and curious as any marten would be. She does not have the patience to stay too long in one place (she’s always “hop-hop’s”, this is how she earned her name) and she’s always the first when it comes to action or adventure. She goes through everything and everyone’s stuff even when she’s not supposed to. Of course she gets into trouble every time, but what are good friends for, if not to get you out of trouble?

    I'm Ulmo

    The turtle Ulmo is the inventor and scholar of the group. A little shy and reserved (not just in his shell), he speaks a little because he thinks a lot. He’s rushed all the time, but that’s not very noticeable, because Ulmo is hurrying slowly like all turtles. His shell is like a magic wardrobe, from which he takes out, if necessary, all kinds of tools and objects invented by him. He is very wise, for who has the patience (and time, a lot of time) to listen to him.
