Malmö Gallerinatt is an annual event held last Saturday in September every year, when many of Malmö’s galleries and art institutions have a common evening opening between 18-24.

This year all of Mitt Möllan was turned into an eye-candy spectacle!
All of Mitt Möllan had about 4000-5000 visitors, and we counted over 1200 people at Hybriden.

It’s great to have people find CBK, HYBRIDEN and TUSEN SERIER so that we get a chance to show off all our great comic books, artworks, artists and meet new people!

Simultaneously a new comic-festival emerged from sunny Mallorca with the fitting name “Tropicana Dreams.” Of course some of us participated!
Crew from both CBK and TUSEN SERIER flew to Mallorca to enjoy the sun and the newness. Meeting new people and stocking up on prints to sell @ HYBRIDEN.

We’re all looking forward to next years edition of both happenings!

Find me in this city is a story about isolation, finding your self and learning to be alone. The book mixes fiction and autobiographic elements. The end result is a fictive story of a girl who has lost her face in a strange city. While she is looking for herself, the cat is looking for the scary yet intriguing dark character who the dog is calling Nightmare. But can you trust a dog who is always lying?
