Kolbeinn Karlsson - The Troll King
This is a great book, very highly recommended. It's one of the Top Shelf Swedish comics, I had ordered it in February but it just seems to have come out. Look at the second image, its great (there's a fold on it as its a two page spread so it looks much nicer in the book). It looks like it was drawn on flock or felt or something with felt tip pens, very interesting. The rest of the book is very clean with very bright colours. Reminds me a bit of Theo Ellsworth's work but in colour and with darker subject matter. I liked it a lot. It's a weird journey through fairy tales, forest creatures and monsters.
