Angst: The Best of Norwegian Comics

I picked this up at a Norwegian church’s holiday fundraiser. Yes, there is a Norwegian church in Manhattan, filled with six-foot tall blond, pregnant women and short, tubby men—go figure. Various artists contributed to this work and they aren’t bad. Most of it falls under the introspective, alternative comic story umbrella, with scratchy but enjoyable art. Unfortunately, there isn’t anything about Norway’s comics that you can’t find in America, unlike Japanese Manga which is often quite different from ours.
