Comics from the new generation of Scandinavian alternative cartoonists.
This anthology of comics offers an intoxicating and compelling sampling of works from Scandinavian countries. Jenni Rope tells a minimalist tale of heartbreak, Peter Kielland's 'Mr Pig' has an eventful day, while Crumb-esque artist Christopher Nielsen of Norway boils all of life down to an eternal journey up the 'Escalator'. This represents a small smattering of the creative, entertaining and original comic concepts to be found in Kolor Klimax. The work of pioneering Scandinavian alternative cartoonists is beautifully presented.
Kolor Klimax is a head-turning compilation... Ultimately, there is no way not to recommend Kolor Klimax. It showcases a wide range of extremely talented cartoonists, and will open your eyes to a whole world of comics that get far too little attention. —Dr. Bart Beaty
