Thanks to Ryan C. for this nice review on Future in Four Color Apocalypse -blog.

Issue 7 is getting finished soonish and should be out in August ’21. Meanwhile you can order all the issues from me or (what’s better) from your local dealer. See list of current distributors holding the most recent issues down here in an earlier update.

The sketch here has nothing to do with Future but with something that’ll be as well out late August. Stay tuned!

Future#6

Here we go again: Future#6 got just out the printers. That’s again 28-pages in as many colours as available in CMYK. I’m trying to tighten the pace a bit so that there’ll be two issues out still after this in 2021 and the remaining last two are out during ’22.

If you want this, it costs 6€ including shipping to anyplace on Earth. It’s as well possible to subscribe to it and the price for all 10 issues is 60€. Mail me if interested.



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.



Future#4 out!

The 4th issue of my 10-mag serie FUTURE was released last weekend at Å-Fest in Porvoo, Finland. Some samples attached here.

This one presents the bohemian artist collective gone underground while art has been made illegal. Meanwhile, read what an angry AI would like to do with you, how are the sounds of today and what’s happening some thousands of years from this moment inside that giant plastic bag that’s somewhere up there in thermosphere. Also more explanations on the dream town Centra and its citizens.

If you desire for a copy, that’s 5€ including shipping. 50€ for all 10 issues. Just paypal to tommi@boingbeing.com and mail me. #5 should be out late August.

Future3_cover.jpg
FINALLY this is out. Future#3 is something that should’ve been released a while ago already but due moving our flat & breaking my back I had to slow down a bit. Anyway, now it’s here and I’m very happy how it looks and how the stories came out.

If you’re not aware what this is about, briefly: this is a weird science fiction epic that’s published as a serie of 10 magazines. The wholesome kinda wraps its reader inside a confusing net of stories that happen on several time levels and locations throughout the universe.

This third issue continues the storylines that started in the two previous ones adding new twists & turns and densing the net. One can read what happens on earth after few thousand years have passed, what belongs to daily routines of The Lady running the world few decades from this moment, what are the plans of worldwide artificial intelligence IDA and what might the lost city of Centra look like.

I’m using lots of different visual and narrative styles inside one wholesome. This is sort of result from ‘The Lab’ I’ve practised for years already.

You may order this directly from me for 5€ (includes shipping).
