Here's the cover for my soon to be published comic called "Nordlys" (means northern lights), which started as my webcomic called Fjordson :)

This is the first book in a series, and will contain everything that was posted online for as long as the comic ran, but in the published version has the beginning redrawn, and contains 20 new pages at the end that ties up the story nicely for the first issue.
The comic is Norwegian, and will be out in book stores in Norway at the end of February 2018, so really soon! I'm hoping it will have an english release one day, but I can't promise that.

Follow me on instagram if you're interested in following my art, and Nordlys's journey :) @malintfalch

So first it was Peter Pan in Norway, then Fjordson, now Nordlys. Is it still based on Peter Pan in concept though? I LOVED the idea, being descended from Vikings myself, and loving the story of Peter Pan!

Congratulations, man.  I am intrigued as to the storyline of this comic; your cover-art draws me in and makes me wonder about the world you have made.  I would much like to read it.

I'm so happy for you! I've loved Fjordson ever since I discovered you on DA two years ago, and I just want to congratulate you on finally publishing it. I'm a little disappointed that you'll be discontinuing it as a webcomic—I've been waiting ages for a new page to be released—but if this means that more people get to read your story, then I can only find it in myself to be grateful. Congrats! You deserve this. :)

I always love your work, but this might possibly be my favorite of all I've seen from your works. Beautiful!

This may be low key, but this almost reminds me a wee bit of Frozen. But on a higher key I'll say it also reminds me a bit of of East of the Sun and West of the Moon, His Dark Materials, The Banner Saga and Jouten.

That aside, on it's own it's very wonderfully colored; and the general layout pretty much invokes like it's an actual animated movie or tv show from Disney, Dreamworks, or even Blizzard Entertainment.

Should your comic be published, I do hope someone does champion a production to adapt your work into animation, I don't even care if it's either Hand-Drawn or CG.
