Rough and ready

Back in 2005 I was asked by Nemi creator Lise Myhre to design a contents page for the next issue of her monthly Nemi comic in Norway. (Different guest artists did a page every issue.) As my Suburban Satanists strip was appearing over there in Herman Hedning comic at the time it made sense for me to use a couple of them in the contents page art. 

Above is the idea I roughed out, and below is the finished artwork. Text was dropped into the blank areas and the page was coloured over in Norway. 
That was my only contribution to Nemi comic but it was fun to do and an honour to be part of it. I'm pleased to say that Nemi is still going, and reached issue 150 this month. (Thanks again for sending me a copy, Lise!) 

As for the Suburban Satanists, it's their 20th anniversary in 2017 so I'm planning to publish them in their own UK comic next year! News as to when exactly that'll happen will be revealed on this blog!

Had never even heard of them before the Brickman comic recently, I thought they were brilliant! Looking forward to reading more from them next year then!

Thanks, Phil. I think there's enough material to fill five or six issues so I'm hoping to do two a year. We'll see how it goes.

I've had to spend a lot of time with google translate to enjoy the Satanists so far...looking forward to an English language version!

Thanks Tiniebras. The three pages in Brickman Returns proved popular so hopefully putting them in their own comic will too.
