Here is our original listing:
Straight outta Finland, and now in stock and available for shipping here in the USA. This is a full color 200+ page hardcover collection of comics that were on display in an accompanying exhibition and that were originally produced, to varying degrees, in three dimensions. It comes complete with an audio CD that includes an "exclusive soundtrack" composed by Fricara Pacchu, Amon Düde & The Hoop, Kiiskinen and Nuslux. It's definitely a bit of a cop out to describe Glömp is as "the Finnish Kramers Ergot," but we're going to throw that out there just to help give those who have never heard of it some sort of idea of where to place it in the comics continuum. The best way to get a better idea is to check out this preview page. This is the tenth volume of Glömp, and the last to be edited by Tommi Masturi. The anthology has been presenting adventurous comics for 12 years now, publishing over 1500 pages of work in the process. This time around their goal seems to have been to push comics off the page and into the world of three-dimensions and this book is the 2-D record of that attempt. This volume starts off with a helpful and well thought out introduction by Jelle Hugaerts that traces the history of comics anthologies, situates anthologies within the history of comics, and analyzes what works and what doesn't in making a successful anthology. Here's the contributor list: the amazing Amanda Vähämäki, Anna Sailamaa, Hanneriina Moisseinen, Jan Anderzén, Jarno Ltva-Nikkola, Pauliina Mäkelä, Roope Eronen, Jyrki Heikkinen, Aapo Rapi & Songa Salomäki, Ami Aho, Kaaatri Sipiläinen, Tommi Musturi, Janne Tervamäki, Reijo Kärkkäinen, and Anna Sailamaa. Limited to 1000 copies.
