  5. mini kuš! #37

    mini kuš! #37 'Snake in the Nose', Tommi Musturi, August 2015

    Snake in the Nose is a free-flow story about an angry man alone in his flat, reminiscent of a manic, badly-drawn Scooby Doo comic. It turns into a real nightmare after just a few pages - containing full frontal and rear nudity, and bad taste in general. Some would call this humour, but that's a bit doubtful.

    5 International artists lead you through a colourful journey through time. While Marcus Nyblom (Sweden) shows his view of a rather primitive stone age,  Oskars Pavlovskis (Latvia) depicted the macabre Antique Age, Lai Tat Tat Wing (Hong Kong) shows a fascinating picture of a very torturous Middle Age, Patric Sandri (Switzerland) drew up a dark picture of the industrial age and Brecht Vandenbroucke (Belgium) beams us into a very colourful but harsh future.
