Johanna Rojola on Finnish comics, women and France

La bande dessinée finlandaise 2013 is the third issue in the Finnish Comics Annual series. Every year the book’s editor is free to choose the contents in her/his liking. My interviewee Johanna “Roju” Rojola is an experienced comics artist who has now edited La bande dessinée finlandaise 2013, together with Kalle Hakkola. Rojola points out that, the name notwithstanding, the book does not only present comics from the year concerned. The anthology’s aim is to have a certain theme connecting its stories.
At the book launch with Riitta Uusitalo, Tiina Pystynen and Johanna Rojola.
