Hi! I'm Mats and I'm the man behind Loon Land. I'm an Oslo based visual artist with a passion for comics, which I've been making all my life. I have had a couple of publications out in Norwegian: "Regarding Tombo" (2001, No Comprendo Press) and "The Complaint" (2002, No Comprendo Press).
From 2003-2005 I worked on a graphic novel called "Just King". This is a 80 page sprawling piece about freedom of speech, liberty, capitalism and xenophobia that I self-published in 2012.
Read more about Just King.
From 2006 to 2011 I took a break from comics and concentrated on various new media art projects.
In 2011 I started creating Loon Land, but it didn't launch on the web and the App Store until March 2013.
My favourite web comics:
XKCD. Nerd heaven.
Pandyland. Weird and surprising fun.
Hyperbole and a Half. Girl heaven.
Oglaf. Dirty, funny and sexy.
Whomp! Lovable nerd.
Up and Out. Misanthropic.
Community Channel. Not a comic though, but so great.
