I don’t remember when I last had a physical copy of this around the house, but I just got my hands on another crate full of my 2006 graphic novel, Sortmund!
Quite basically, the book is a murder mystery with a heavy tinge of occultism, but insidiously uses that framework to discuss religion, love, and community. What makes life worth living, really—as seen from a Faustian point of view.
If you’re not a Danish reader, you’ll have to take my word for it (the book remains unpublished in other languages) or hey, why not trust Rod McKie instead? He got the gist of the story from the pictures alone, and even seemed to like the drawings all the same.
Sortmund is a 292 pages hardcover, featuring black/white/red interior art. It was published 2006 to critical acclaim in major Danish print media. $
