Jan 26, 2022

The renowned US publisher, Fantagraphics, have acquired English World rights in 6 books by John Kenn Mortensen, three of which are collaborations with the Danish authors, Kenneth Bøgh Andersen and Benni Bødker.

Fantagraphics will commence their committed John Kenn Mortensen programme with A CHRISTMAS BESTIARY, which is scheduled for October this year, most likely followed by GRIMM I and II during the course of 2023 and THE NIGHTMARE FACTORY, NIGHT TERROR and THE WRESTLER thereafter.

Indeed great news for all fans of John's work around the world.

The publisher, Gary Groth, says:

"It was my recent good fortune to be introduced to the work of John Kenn Mortensen and my even greater fortune to be privileged to publish this work — by turns, playful, funny, wicked, stunningly imaginative, and, of course, masterfully rendered, like a combination of Edward Gorey and Bernie Wrightson, but every bit his own man."
