Lewis Trondheim cover interview; also, Dan Nadel's interview with painter cum comics artist David Sandlin takes us on a fascinating tour of Sandlin's Sinland (not in any way, shape or form to be confused with Frank Miller's Sin City, of which Sinland should perhaps be considered -- at least in some respects -- the antithesis).
Let's continue our comics travels by heading north! This 250 page, full-size, flexi-cover anthology of contemporary comics contains new, 21st century work of twenty five creators hailing from the Scandinavian nations of Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark. As editor Wivel makes plain in his introduction, there's fertile ground for comics in this part of the world, so it should come as now surprise that there's plenty happening on the comics front. Kolor Klimax is only the first of a projected series of English language anthologies of Nordic work; there's plenty more where this came from! On hand are some creators who will already be familiar to many Copacetic customers, most notably Amanda Vähämäki, whose "In the Night" is yet another standout work that is new to our shores. Tommi Musturi and Bendik Kaltenborn have also had works here, but there are twenty new creators to discover in these pages. Interested? Then don't miss our special "get acquainted" price!
