It is a new space in Malmö where “ordinary, creative people” can try out and develop a range of activities connected to the field of comics. Fanzineverkstaden is especially relevant for young comic […]
Not long now. On Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th March, 2018, it’s time for Seriefest again! It is a great DIY comic festival where all kinds of folks sell their comics and other visual materials. I’ll be there with the Killer Jellyfish. You can read my interview here (in Swedish). Don’t miss the fun!
The Swedish Comics Association promotes Swedish comics and comic artists and organises exhibitions and prizes and such events, as well as comics education.
