Wohoo! Arriving to the Comic Art Centre and finding that the latest issue of Bild & Bubbla, the Swedish Comics Library 10th Aniversary special, and the off-print with the best of the best from the Archive’s collections, have arrived.

Another three of these numbered comics prints from the first half of the 20th century, featuring Adamson (Silent Sam) arrived today. Makes me feel like I’m five again, collecting comics from bubble gum packages…
