Swedish Comic Books & Small Press


I've been trying to look at Swedish comic books and history as its over....10 years (!) since I wrote about it but the only book I can find is "no longer available" or is so expensive (cover price AND postage from the US because no copies in the UK!) that I have to rule it out.

Pity.

Also, last time I had any news of Swedens Small Press and fanzines was in 1990 so I would like to learn more.  Anyone got any links or info in English....PLEASE?

  1. I can tell you that the middle picture on the bottom row of the cover there is Car Boy by Max Andersson - it can be found in Hotwire Comix And Capers #1 from Fantagraphics (2006)... Cheap enough on Amazon usually, 136 pages! Car Boy's a wordless story, just like the best of them.

    1. It's a good book! There's three volumes of it now (to the best of my knowledge), all good... Volume 1 has Max Andersson, Johnny Ryan, Glenn Head, Tim Lane, Judith McNicol, Matt Madden, David Paleo, Mike Wartella, R Sikoryak, Doug Allen, Lauren Weinstein, David Lasky, Tony Millionaire, Onsmith, J Bradley Johnson, Mats, Carol Swain, Sam Henderson, Christian Northeast, Michael Kupperman, Craig Yoe, Ivan Brunetti, Danny Hellman, Mack White and Rick Altergott.

      I haven't got #2, but #3 has all those plus Steven Cerio (amongst others) - nice big A3 size books they are as well.
