Hey everyone! I wanted to share my comic finds from my trip to Iceland with you!
One camper van company had pop culture murals on each of their vans. I was losing hope of seeing some superheroes until literally the last day! The vans with air vents installed are really eager to advertise their superior ventilation prowess I can’t tell you how may “Don’t stink!” logos we saw on these things, but this was the most creative.
I find other languages fascinating and it’s really cool to see a popular comic printed in another language. It’s kinda fun to be able to decipher some of the words just from the content.
I went on a food tour and of course comics came up in conversation and wouldn’t you know it, the guide actually published this book! I tracked down the nearest bookstore and got myself a copy! Gotta support those young artists! Google Translate does it’s best, but I don’t think I’m going to be able to understand this one
And finally, when I was at said bookstore, the employee that helped me track the book down had actually studied comics in grad school and had tons of suggestions of other Icelandic comic creators and recommended this one! She had studied in Scotland and met the couple that wrote and illustrated it. They took some of the most iconic landscapes of Iceland and made them into characters!
I swear us comic nerds must have some mystic magnetism towards each other or something, the chances of me meeting both of these people is just incredible.
So mods, when are we adding Iceland to our international expansion
Anyway, I had no idea there was such a comic interest in Iceland and wanted to share my experience with you all!
