Danish author Søren Mosdal will be here signing copies of his Centrala title Erik the Red: King of Winter on Monday May 15th, 6-7pm.
While we haven’t seen a lot of Mosdal’s work in English before, he’s been a mainstay in European comics since the mid-90’s, with prominent works in the Danish, German and French industries, as well as English-language appearances in Solvenian anthology Stripburger. We were very excited to see his 2014 historical fiction title Erik the Red make it into English last year, thanks to publisher Centrala.
Erik the Red tells the story of Erik Torvaldsson, who in 982 left his home of Iceland (thanks to a feud with his neighbour) and established a colony in a land mass he dubbed Greenland (apparently to attract settlers). He ruled there as its “Paramount Chieftain” until his death in 1003. Mosdal’s style adds immensely to the take, reminiscient of the likes of Joann Sfar, Christophe Blain and Blutch.
Needless to say, with Søren passing through London we’re pleased as punch to have the opportunity to host a signing with him, in association with Centrala. Søren will be here on Monday May 15th, from 6-7pm, so come on down! If you can’t make it, but would like a reservation or a mail order, drop an email to email@example.com.
