In all the excitment over manga from Japan and bandes dessinees fromFrance, it's easy to forget that other countries have a thriving comics cultureall their own. This eye-popping anthology, assembled by Danishpublisher/editor/translator Steffan P.Maarup, introduces adventurous readers to19 exciting talents whom are taking their first bow on the English speakingstage.

One centerpiece of the book is Nikoline Werdelin's stunning "Because I Love You so Much," a Doonesbury-style slice-of-life dalily strip abouta suburan Danish couple who discover that their daughter is being molested--- isit happening at her daycare center , or, horrifyingly , closer tohome?

The book also spotlights the snarky and surreal single-panel workand gags by HuskMitNavn, Christoffer Zieler, and Johan F.Krarup; the visuallyexplosive silent comics of Mardon Smet and Peter Kielland.

Fine collection of short pieces from Danish graphic artists. Ranging from straight forward to not so straight forward, but all are interesting. The piece on pedophilia is really intense.

An interesting insight into comics from Denmark. Really enjoyed this collection. Challenging & provocative.
