The first Northern Overexposure comic book is now out! The book was revealed at Tampere kuplii comic con which was held in Tampere, Finland. Here's a few pics of the book.

The book is 88-pages, in full colour and translated all the way (little subtitles underneath the strips). If you happen to be interested, you can order it from me via this link.

Here's a couple of newish strips:


Image
6. Come on, wake up now. Time to get ready. / Sure sure.


Image
1. Where's the opener? / Don't own one. 2. Well I guess it's up to the old faithful - 3. MACGYVER 5. When hungover, a man is horny because he's afraid of dying and not leaving any children. A woman is horny purely out or pity for the- 11. Damn. A twist-off cap. / So you're the one that sawed off the chairleg then?


Image
1. Autobots, transform! 3. What the? Minna's sitting here watching cartoons! We're going out. Come along. 4. It's not just any cartoon, it's Transformers! They're robots from another planet which can transform into objects and vehicles and they battle against each other! 5. So you're seriously staying in on a Saturday night to watch a robot Volkswagen and a toaster match it out? 6. Don't mock me. / If you happen to grow up, you know where to find us. 7. I've made my choice. I'd marry Grimlock if possible. 10. You might be a Transformer yourself. / Don't mock me...

8. Waitaminutewhatwasthisgameagain? / Sweet Fighter III! I misread the title! / Pretty brutal.

It's in Finnish, but like I said the book is thoroughly translated in English (little subtitles running underneath the strips).

The cover of your book is really lovely. I like your use of color in your strips.

There are some incredible artists in places like Finland and Norway that seem to get over looked even by "Euro-comic fans" like myself. I hope your book does well!

Thanks Kazu and Angeldevil, I hope it does well too. ;)

It's been two and a half weeks since the release and we've sold half of the pressing (so not bad I guess), I'm really satisfied so far.
