  • Helsinki Comics Festival30-08-16

    Upcoming this weekend: A small expo at Helsinki Sarjakuvafestivaalit. The venue is Kolo, Pengerskatu 9 in the Kallio district.
    I will be on the festival stage Friday and talk about… work? Probably. And about travelling and comics journalism, since one of the festival themes is „journey“. My first comic book „In the land of earlybirds“ was recently translated to Finnish as „Aamuvirkkujen maassa”. I still wonder how they squeezed the title into those two words.
