Hey everyone. Just popping by to inform I'll be attending Art Bubble comics festival in Copenhagen during the 14–15th of November – so in just two weeks! I'm quite humbled to be part of the guests this year, featuring the likes of Don Rosa (Donald Duck), Walthéry (Natacha) and David Petersen (Mouse Guard) to name a few. The festival is open from 10 AM to 6 PM on both Saturday and Sunday, and I'll be around signing books and such throughout the weekend. I also have a panel at 2 PM on Saturday, where I'll be talking about Perkeros and music with Christopher Thomsen. See you there! Also, a big thanks to everyone who made it over to Bokmässan Göteborg in September! It was a really nice trip. I hope you enjoyed your copies of Perkeros. In other news, I'm currently working out the financial stuff to be able to continue with the following books of the series. I am truly truly sorry for the delay, but this project is so close to my heart I want to give it the time and effort it deserves, instead of rushing it through. Hang in there, you guys are the best!

I'm a little late for the game but I've simply been swamped after getting back from Sweden. The Stockholm International Comic Festival was a blast, and I must thank all the staff, fellow artists, exhibitors, volunteers and, of course, the attendees for making the weekend as fun as it was. I still feel very humbled to have been invited, and can't thank the organizers and my Swedish publisher Cobolt enough. I was also really taken to see Perkeros get a warm welcome in Sweden, and I'm looking forward to coming back for the Göteborg Book Fair. You'll find more of these beautiful photos from the festivals on Serieteket's Facebook page (© Makan E-Rahmati) and a small news insert on SVT. To sum things up: Thanks, hope to see you again soon.

The Perkeros shirts arrived this Tuesday, and I mailed out the orders immediately. Hope you'll get your tees soon. Thanks so much for your patience and support! There are still some sizes available, so check out the sizes and such from my online store shop.jpahonen.com. In other news, The Stockholm International Comic Festivals are just around the corner, and I'm excited to see what they have to offer. The event will take place over at Kulturhuset (among other satellite locations) this weekend (9th–10th May). If you're in the neighborhood, pop by and say hi. I'll be attending the festivities to launch the Swedish and Danish versions of Perkeros. Once again I'll be happy to doodle dedications for you guys. You'll find the program info and such here. My schedule for the show is as follows:
