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.

Freedom of expression for sale

Ninni Aalto Tiina PystynenA couple of years ago a magazine asked me for comics. They gave me a carte blanche to draw anything I wanted. Yet, after a couple of strips my drawings stopped appearing. When I asked for the reason, the editor told that (s)he had forgotten my comics during a magazine reform. There was no room for them anymore. I don’t know whether that was the real reason. Maybe my comics did not fit into the magazine’s line or my fee was too high? My joy for a regular income had been premature. I was back worrying about my livelihood once again.
