Now complete with a fantastic poster from Kolbeinn Karlsson, Top Shelf's Swedish Invasion event officially gets underway tomorrow. With signings and appearances galore from the creators in New York and Chicago (see more info on the publisher's site), we on the other side of the Atlantic are feeling a particularly viking-shaped hole in our comic landscape at the moment.
To cheer ourselves up, we've compiled a handy list of our reviews and interviews with the current wave of invading Swedes, for your reading pleasure, after the jump:
The Troll King, Kolbeinn Karlsson
The 120 Days of Simon, Simon Gärdenfors
Hey Princess, Mats Jonsson
Also appearing will be Niklas Asker (writer/ artist of the superb Second Thoughts) and the mighty Fredrik Strömberg (author of Swedish Comics History & The Comics go to Hell; president of The Swedish Comics Association). If you can't make any of the events listed on the poster, we heartily recommend buying a copy of any of the aforementioned books, or, at the very least checking out the official previews at Top Shelf's Website.
