Klaus released on pre-order

Richard Short’s new book has just been released on pre-order. the first 500 come with a beautiful A2 poster. Pre-orders will be sent off on the 11th November.

Visually informed by Short’s love of classic comic strips, especially Charles Schulz’ Peanuts and Tove Jansson’s Moomin, Klaus explores the un-adventures of the eponymous character, a pensive anthropomorphic cat, and a vexatious supporting cast of humanoid rats, inappropriately specie-d romantic interests and Klaus’ libertarian doppelganger Otto. Weaving literary allusions, metaphysical ruminations and physical comedy through crisp, cartoonish artwork Short has transplanted the spirit of the classic comic strip into a new, slightly stranger body, creating a work that is “rather sweet, slightly dark and definitely surreal” (Forbidden Planet).

Hilda is coming…

After the phenomenal success of Hildafolk (Nobrow © 2010) we are very pleased to announce that Hilda is being granted her own album-style series, beginning with Hilda and the Midnight Giant. In the first volume of the new series, Hilda finds her world turned upside down as she faces the prospect of leaving her snow-capped birthplace for the hum of the megalopolis. Her mother, an architect, has been offered a prestigious position in the bustling megalopolis that she would find hard to reject. Besides, the tiny elven creatures making a daily habit of bombarding them with threats isn’t making Hilda’s case any better. As she seeks ways to stall her mother’s decision, Hilda rushes to befriend the very source of her malady – will they help or hinder her? More importantly, who is this mysterious Midnight Giant?
