LAB | Laino Mehe is back




Laino Mehe (previously know as Laino.me) started as a project to translate comics to basque back in 2011. Today we have reorganized the website and the way comics are presented. All the comics will be on display in Laino Mehe's frozeen page and to stay tuned to the latest releases and news you can follow these three two channels:

About the logo

The logo is an estilized version of the previous one that was directly taken from the Dragon Ball comics created by Akira Toriyama. 'Laino Mehe' means 'Thin Cloud' in Basque.

What is LainoMehe?

How would the characters in our favorite comics talk if they spoke in Basque? LainoMehe was born in response to that question. If not to fight back the scarcity of comics in the Basque publishing scene, then to translate some chapters of our favorite authors and share them with basque readers.

We took the first steps in March 2011, adapting the Basque version of Dragon Ball animation series that was broadcasted in the Basque TV to the original manga work. When we saw that they fit, we transcribed the first five chapters and posted them on a web we called: laino.me (light cloud). Although they were very successful in our circle of friends, it didn't seem good to us to keep on translating copyrighted content and even though we tried to find different ways of doing it correctly, we haven't found a way to do it properly yet.

In November 2014, we refreshed our name and logo and went from laino.me to LainoMehe. We also got established in Frozeen comic publishing platform. First of all, we want to apologize to the authors and owners of the copyrights of the comics if this initiative seems wrong to them. The idea was to take a few works from each author, to have a sample of how they would look in basque, while we continue dreaming with a utopian Basque comic publishing scene. If this doesn't seem right to you, please get in touch with us and accept our apologies for the inconveniences.

Without further ado, if you don't want to miss the comics that we'll be translating from time to time, subscribe via email to this blog and follow us on social networks: google+ and facebook
