Creative industries and skefkef fanzine So why the skefkef experience is relevant for the creative industries : If you go back a little bite and observe the blockbusters you will notice that too many of them are based on comics. This is why we started doing a comics book and then we started to produce product related to comics with almost no budget : showing that is possible.
