We will be going to the Angouleme festival this week end. We will be sharing table with our friends in No Comprendo Press at the Nouveau Monde pavilion.

Among others you will find contributions by Tor Ærlig, Andrew Page, Lene Ask, Rui Tenreiro, Jason, Martin Ernstsen and Bendik Kaltenborn.
Martin Erntsen’s new book leads the reader in to a universe filled by strange characters and dreamlike landscapes. The story of the messenger, Kodok, is told in an untraditional and dynamic way, and is visually the most fulfilled graphical work from Martin Ernstsen so far. The book has full English translation of the limited text on the bottom of every page. Order it from the shop.
Issue number four of Angst is out. This brand new collection of the best Norwegian comics includes work from among others Jason, Rui Tenreiro, Bendik Kaltenborn, Lars Fiske, Tor Ærlig, Andrew Page , Flu Hartberg, Kristian Hammerstad and Tuva Synnevåg.
