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.

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.

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!

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).

Later, I will also participate in a meeting at l’EESAB de Rennes on Tuesday, October 2 at 6pm. Yes, that’s in Rennes.

So see you soon!



New Book

New book. Yes, released about NOW!

“The Anthology of Mind” should be available now or soon in Italy, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Poland, France and Finland. English edition coming out someday next Spring. AOM is a sort of retrospective thing collecting works from 1997–2017. It gathers short stories published mostly in small print-run fanzines and anthologies around the world. I’d say it’s 128 pages of mostly work that only a few have seen. I did reletter, recolor, draw extra, fix, cut & paste, write, glue, cry, drink gallons of coffee with this so better check it out.

Our Finnish edition entitled “Mielen antologia” will be released upcoming weekend at The Helsinki 33rd Comics Festival thanks to Zum Teufel.

So, go and support your local publisher:

Fortepressa (Italy)
Fulgencio Pimentel (Spain)
Chili Com Carne (Portugal)
La 5e Couche (France/Belgium)
Timof (Poland)
Forlaens (Denmark)
Zum Teufel (Finland)

What comes to The Helsinki 33rd Comics Festival, I’ll be there with an own booth & new stuff. Will talk about Future-project and AOM on Saturday at 5pm. More info on the festival programme.

Also Kutikuti’s semi-legenday KUTICLUB is held upcoming Friday in Bar Mascot as an opening for the festival Performing Jukka Herva & Data City, KK DJs and karaoke (!). Tickets 3€. We’ll release Kuti#49 and truly a PILE of new zines and books. Welcome!
