Oh jeez, so much stuff bought during this year’s SIS (and it felt like I missed a bunch, argh! XD)!
Let’s see, first off, I bought a bunch of art books from various artists, such as Diana, Agz, Sara, Jenni, Lina, Pamurai, Team Pärvelö, Sillyfork and Pinkpolenta, and they were all awesome!
Since I have a comic in Home Made Comics #16, I actually got that one for free (or in exchange of my comic’s contribution, if you like)! It’s a big mix of comics, and I really enjoyed a great bunch of them in this issue, so you should totally go and get it yourself!
I also got Plutonium Comics #12, which also is a great comics anthology, and I really enjoyed a great deal of the comics in that book too! You should get it yourself if you haven’t already!
Two other anthologies I got was Swedish Comic Sin #1 (gotta catch them all!) and Väsen, an anthology with folk lore as a theme. The quality felt a bit uneven in Väsen – some were really gorgeous and great and some were more so-so. I don’t know, maybe I had too high hopes on this ^^; I really liked the effort and theme though and would love to see a similar anthology sometime!
I’m a bit sad that I didn’t get around to hang out with Li as much, but this year’s SIS was a bit more stressful, I think. I’m super glad that I got her latest Agnosis, and the printed version of her “Destroyer of Light” (and thank you so much for the signature!)! I really like her take on the Greek myths, and I’m so glad to see the Persephone story being picked up by a publisher, because it’s great!
Another book I’m really glad I picked up was Tinet Elmgren‘s “Sockerärter“! Such gorgeous water colour paintings and a beautiful story! <3 And as a special perk, the cutest little piggy portrait of me as a part of her signature :)
I also really enjoyed Tomas Antila‘s latest ‘zine (princess Madelene and angst!). Stef Gaines had a really nice ‘zine where she collected her five latest hourly comics. Daniel Lenneér’s latest ‘zines about Nogi and Beskôddarna delivered the right amount of sillyness and violence that I need in my life. Irma’s comic Cosmical worked really nice in the square format and was the right combination of education and entertainment :) Also, I managed to get both “Raedus” and “Myling” by Yossra, which were both very well reccomended reads!
Some new comics that I really enjoyed too were Nelly’s “Beyond the ordinary“, Mimosa’s “Cockblock Kitties“, Gabbi’s “Vienda“, Adelaide Tasker’s “Thora the Destroyer”, Olivia’s “Myska and the Dragon“, Jesper’s Touhou Project doujinshi, Ebba’s comic “Djinns” and Stina’s comic “The Thief and the Egg”! They’re all comics and artists you should really check out! :)
So yeah, I think those were the highlights from my loot, sorry if I left someone out! All in all, I really enjoyed all the comics I got! What were your favourite comics from this year’s SIS?
