Adventurous, on the go and optimally organisedâ€“ this characterises the Finnish comic scene. In recent years, young artists have established themselves whose books are published around the world. The unusual content and style of the narratives have to date receive little attention in Germany, which could well be changed by the Guest of Honour presentation of Finland at this yearsâ€™ Frankfurt Book Fair. In the run-up to this, young Finnish comic artists including Tiitu Takalo, Mika LietzĂ©n and Reetta Niemensivu, who are both represented with contributions to the recently published â€śComic Atlas Finlandâ€ť, will be showing a selection of their works.
