Future#5

Future5_00_cover

Back from holidays and Future#5 just got out the printers! Glad how it came out. Now the serie is halfway, five issues to go. This is my weapon against capitalism.

In this fifth issue of the serie the several storylines start to get twisted. What might be underneath the lost city of Centra? Who has built the series of world tormenting AI? What happens, when a normie spectator finds himself as a drugged star of The Reality Show? Find out…


Due Finnish Post I’ve been forced to raise the price for single issues to 6€ and the whole 10 issue subscription to 60€. If you’re interested in ordering, mail me. The prices include shipping worldwide. NOTE! Due I’m keeping the prices as low as possible I’m shipping it all as 2nd class (1st class would mean x2 prices). While the current Covid-19 crisis all the shipments have had enormous delays from one up to four (4!) months. So, dear customers, I’m asking for patience. Will update a list of retailers later. Stay tuned.

At this very moment I’m finalizing the last pages of 5th issue of my FUTURE comic. While it’s going to printers next week, there is an online interview by Nicholas Burman for the new SOLRAD website – a lengthy conversation where I explain bit more on the project, its background, aims and approaches, amongst everything else.

The photo here (and in the beginning of the article) is from my new studio in Siuro, a countryside village we moved to +year ago. The excellent French festival BD Aix has (an excellent) serie of photo reportages presenting ateliers of wild bunch of contemporary comic artists. To see more you may find some photos from this new space I’m totally happy to work in from the BD Aix’s site.

Å-Fest 2020 will be held 15th of February in Porvoo, Finland. This is a poster image I did for the festival. Besides that I’ll be present with an exhibition, a lecture and sales booth with a lot of stuff – Future#4 as well if it gets of the printing house in time. The lecture will focus on ‘exceptions in storytelling’. I’ll be showing tons of my own works and explaining in details how ‘the flow’ is built (and broken). Kutikuti will also be present with works in exhibitions & talk on the recent GIANT anthology (Jätti-Kuti / The Thick Book of Kuti). See you there!
