SSC began as an idea from Janne “Marvel” Eriksson, which we took it upon us to make a reality out of.
As the editor in chief for the only superhero comics published in Sweden, the Swedish editions of Spider-man and X-men, Janne felt that these two magazines didn’t have any direct competition and needed a Swedish equivalent to balance the scales.
The idea is to showcase young, untested Swedish and international comic-book talent, with panels and pages filled with action, but with Swedish ideals and sensibilities, to differentiate it from the now dominant American superhero comics.
With a little bit of luck, this can also work as a springboard to open up new avenues for young aspiring comic-book professionals, in Sweden or anywhere else in the world.
So far, 10 issues have been published, and you can buy these in Swedish comic-book stores or order them online on our website.
We’re continuously trying to improve our own editorial work, aiming to make every consecutive issue better than the previous one.
We always share any changes in our editorial work with everyone that contributes, or wishes to contribute to SSC. We feel this will mean that we’ll all keep trying to find new ways to get better at doing what we do. And what we’re doing, is making comics.
We want YOU, as a reader/visitor to have opportunities and means to affect the contents of this magazine, and to give us tips on how to improve our work and our comics.
All kinds of feedback are welcomed, because we want to know what’s good, and what’s even better… because it’s all good.
