“a really good read”
Bild & Bubbla-editor and comics journalist Fredrik Strömberg has a review of Nebelgrad Blues on his web page. In the positive review he starts with stating that he “was one of the first to write about the Norwegian artist Jason internationally (i.e. in the Swedish magazine Bild & Bubbla). Since then Jason has become a true international phenomenon and many new Norwegian artists have emerged, although none have so far reached the same heights as Jason. Having read the two volumes of Nebelgrad Blues by the artist Sigbjørn Lilleeng, I think we might have a contender.” Strömberg also points out that Lilleeng has European, American and Japanese influences, but also is founded in the modern Norwegian comics’ tradition. His conclusion is “For those of you living in Scandinavia, I really recommend picking up Nebelgrad Blues from Jippi Forlag, and if you are a foreign publisher, pick up the rights to these graphic novels as soon as you can!” The full review can be read here.
