Serier Mot Rasism!

March 30, 2011

This comics anthology against racism will be released at SPX in Stockholm, May 5-8!

My contribution is a 5-page Arg Kanin story.

Hur ser den moderna rasisten ut? Vad innebär islamofobi? Hur rättvis är Sveriges migrationspolitik? Hur ska man handskas med främlingsfientliga uttalanden i vardagen? Vad innebär det egentligen att vara svensk? Och inte minst… Är du också med i kampen?

Dessa angelägna frågor ställs, tillsammans med många fl er, i den här antologin. Serier mot rasism är ett kollektivt yttrande från ett trettiotal svenska serietecknare mot främlingshatets allt mer påtagliga frammarsch i vårt samhälle. Med både humor och allvar angrips temat som angår oss alla – som vi var och en kan antingen höja rösten mot eller tyst låta gro vidare.

Vinsten från försäljningen av denna bok går oavkortat till nätverket Ingen människa är illegal, som arbetar för papperslösa flyktingar.

Upcoming publications…

March 1, 2011

Working on some new stuff, or have worked the last two months, or will work on during the near future…

In Swedish Comic Sin 2: Wet Spot. 16 pages of erotica.

In Serier Mot Rasism: Arg Kanin om Asylpolitik och rasistiska alibin. Same as in Asylkalendern 2011, but with two new pages added about incarceration and deportations.

In Dystopia [upcoming issue]: My New Roommate. Script by me, art by Emre Özdamarlar. Satire about world politics and neighborhood policing.

In Dystopia [upcoming issue]: konSEKVENS. By Wormgod. Comics version of the konSEKVENS exhibitions.

Piracy is Liberation 009: Deicide. Next book in the series. More postapocalypse than cyberpunk this time around. Will contain the finalist story Spyware from the Morning International Comics Competition + a remake of an older story that was always intended to be a part of the Piracy is Liberation backstory. The title of the book is a clue.

All of the above, if things go as planned, will be out in time for SPX in Stockholm (see link in previous post).

And I’m also planning to do something for the Arctic Comics Festival in Kemi, Finland. We’ll see how that goes. If nothing else, I guess it’ll go into a future issue of Dystopia

And there’s a secret future project that I’ll talk about when I know more. Maybe two new projects.
