Clark Ashton Smith, and When the last story is told:


Those who are unconventional enough to credit me with rationality will smile at my story and deem that I have forsaken the province of bizarre pictorial art (in which I have achieved a certain eminence) to invade that of superscientific fiction.

— Clark Ashton Smith, in The Light from Beyond

You don’t think it’s too late to include that in my latest book, do you? :)

Update: When the last story is told

Latest word on When the last story is told, my book of abstract collage comics, is that printing starts 17 March and the finished books lands in Malmö about a week later. Yay!

I’ll have a limited, signed edition up for sale, but I’m queasy about taking pre-orders until I have word that the book is printed and bound. More on that soon!

On the subject of keeping you entertained by reposting old crap I once did

Remember when I drew a daily advent calendar comic about a hamster with delusions of divinity? Really, no? To be honest, neither did I until my buddy Janus reminded me.


So while I’m at dragging old corpses to the surface, aka lazy bloggery, you might also go reminisce about the time when I made straight old comics that people understood. Well, sorta.

The entire, collected In the beginning there was Wertham is here (listed from end to beginning, thank you very much web publishing software), or you can start at page 1.

Merry hamstermas!

So I have a new book coming out

A while back I blogged to the effect that C’est Bon Kultur was closing down. Since then, a bunch of new people have rallied to continue the work along with the old, diminished gang.

I’m still out, though, but CBK will be publishing a collection of my recent whiteout/montage comics — so thanks for that. At the moment I’m mucking about with page sequence and book design, but I’m crossing fingers for a January/February release. More news here when they materialise!

Edit: Duhh, some specs on the book, perhaps? The title will be When the last story is told, a 64 pages, full colour, hardcover. Price tag yet to be determined. End edit

Probably my last #30dayscomics this year



Red onion, coloured paper, India ink, white acrylic. A3 format.

This was the last piece I finished for the 30 Days project before the Swedish Comics Association dumped the large magazine redesign job in my lap. With the amount of work ahead of me, it’s safe to say I won’t have time to do more daily comics this year, so I’ll bow out of the exercise.

There will likely still be new comics from me every now and then thru November/December, but not at the frequency I started out.


Whoa, now you can buy the Minutemen comics tribute anthology that Warren Craghead pulled together, featuring work by 58 really outstanding alt.comics artists (including yours humbly)!


Each of the 45 tracks off Minutemen’s epic Double Nickels on the Dime album has been adapted into comics form, including — pay attention, collectors! — hard-to-find, first-vinyl-pressing-only tracks like the oddball Van Halen and Steely Dan covers!

What are you waiting for — go, buy!
