IMG_2984I am a journalist, author and historian, who has studied comics since the early 1990’s. I am editor of Bild & Bubbla, Scandinavia’s largest as well as the world’s second oldest magazine about comics, and President of the Swedish Comics Association. I have, as President been part of growing the Association substantially, initiating new endeavours such as the Comic Art Centre in Malmö, The Swedish Comics Archives and the festival I Seriernas Värld (In the World of Comics).

I write regularly for newspapers and magazines about comics, head the Comic Art School of Sweden, am editor for Scandinavian Journal for Comic Art (SJoCA) and founding member of the Nordic Network for Comics Research (NNCORE).

Among the books I have written are the English language Swedish Comics History, Black Images in the Comics, The Comics Go to Hell and Comic Art Propaganda. I live and work in Sweden and am currently writing a thesis at Malmö University.
