New from Titan Books: The hit UK comic strip Nemi! Coming this month from Titan Books (through Diamond Distributors) is the fourth collected volume of the Nemi comic strip by Lise Myhre. Check out the preview pages below, and order this book at your nearest comic book store today ($14.95)! (Props for its Tolkien mention, which totally resonates with me (at least in terms of literature).)

From Titan:

“No matter who your are, where you are from, what job you are in… there is a little Nemi in all of us.” – Tori Amos

“Lise Myhre is a big shot in Norway and deserves to be one here as well.” – Roman Dirge (Creator of Lenore)

Norway’s most famous (and provocative) export returns for her fourth triumphant book in this new hardback collection of Lise Myhre’s daily comic strip, featuring an introduction by punk-rock legend Gaye Advert.

Created when Myhre “set out to find an imaginary friend” and named after Italy’s ancient (and supposedly enchanted) Lake Nemi and fictional hero Inigo Montoya of The Princess Bride (one of Myhre’s favorite films), Lise Myhre’s Nemi Montoya is a goth-tinged heroine for the modern twenty-something, tapping into all the fun, fervor and frustrations of the 21st Century woman.

Already a superstar in Europe, Nemi’s first volume has reprinted multiple times, and the strip continues to appear daily in the national paper Metro, which has a circulation of over 1.35 million readers in the UK.
