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.

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.

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).

Went to the garden and look what I found!

These two rascals are getting released on Friday at the exhibition opening in MUU Gallery (Helsinki).

3th issue of ‘Future’ is something that should’ve been released already some time ago. Anyway, now it’s here and I’m more than happy how it came out.

‘Unlimited Lives’ is a 24-page floppy abstract burst in big size (25 x 35 cm) & two colours. All new material, tied to the exhibition in a way. Limited edition of 300 pcs.

If you won’t get to the opening & release party, you may order these directly from me.

Future#3 costs 5 euros (issues #1 and #2 available for same price, includes shipping), Unlimited Lives is 10€ (+ shipping).

I’ll post some material of the contents soonish…

PS. Future subcscribers will get their mags in post shortly (all 10 issues = 50€)!



FUTURE is here!

Finally the first two issues of my new project FUTURE (that’s some weird sci-fi I suppose) are out. 28 pages in Marvel-size, full colour, all in English. Get both from me for 10 Eur / USD. That includes shipping any place on earth. The serie will be ten issues long so we gotta live with it for some time. You may pay by paypal to tommi@boingbeing.com and send me your postal address.

I’ve been working with FUTURE indeed a long time already. What’s taken time is the fact that this is the first wholesome where I’m trying to combine different styles in one book. Basicly I’ve been learning new ways of doing and now using those to illustrate the different timelines, utopias and dystopias of the book. Anyway, it’s sort of mind-tricking net of stories that you are about to dive into. Excited to have it now in public for the first time.
